Don’t budge! Plain and simple you were gracious enough to ask prior to moving forward with the September nuptials. And at that time you were given the go ahead by both sides of the family.

Regardless of her reasoning, your Future Mother-In-Law is throwing a tantrum worthy of a 5 year old. If her concern about numbers being smaller for your Fiance family is founded, why is she threatening to make it even less by not showing up? Second, what mother would miss their son’s wedding because she didn’t save up as much as she would have liked to to give a gift they weren’t even expecting. 

No! You picked your date, you’ve paid for it and you’re keeping it! If she answered “yes” for everyone without asking anyone, that’s her problem, not yours!

Those are pretty immature reasons not to come to her own son’s wedding…..

I agree, don’t move your wedding. That’s just ridiculous! It’s not like you just told her the date yesterday, it’s been set for a while!

Smile sweetly and tell her that she will be missed…
