I am so sorry you are dealing with, it sounds very hurtful. This should be a happy time for her as well as you. On the bright side, maybe you won’t have her intruding on your wedding plans much. 

Maybe it would be good to reach out to her but only regarding non-wedding things. If she doesn’t want to be a part of that then that’s her choice and there’s no reason to let her dampen your mood. Maybe just be cordial/friendly and hope she comes around.  Good luck!

Your Fiance needs to get involved if she’s trashing your family and you.

He needs to sit her down and tell her that he will not accept her talking bad about you guys, and that she doesn’t have to like you, but she does have to respect you.  And that’s HIS job as her son to set her straight, not yours, because obviously she can just blow you off.

That said, you might just have to brush this all off as having an insane Mother-In-Law.  Yeah, it hurts that she talks bad about your family, but practically speaking, short of starting a brawl (if that would even work), how can you stop her?  Don’t stoop to her crazy. Smile, be nice, and avoid her, maybe even hope she doesn’t show up.
