I’m sorry you’re having drama around wedding and family!  I know how it feels and it’s not so nice.  I think the key thing with your Future Sister-In-Law is to just explain that although you wanted the cousin at the shower, it is important that all the wedding party members can attend first and foremost.  Some people are silly about who ‘needs’ to be at events with them, and if she doesn’t understand that it’s not her choice, I don’t think there’s much you can do!

As for your fiance, I would talk to him about it.  I’ve had issues with my Mother-In-Law, and my husband was quick to take my side.  However, when it came to talking to his mom about it, he was very nervous about it.  He avoided talking about some of the inflammatory stuff in person (though he e-mailed her about it earlier).  I think some people have a really hard time discussing stuff with their family members.  But I would discuss how you feel with him; the communication is key!  If you don’t say anything and situations arise in the future, the results could be EXPLOSIVE!  Good luck, feel free to PM me if you want to vent.

I agree also with the communication. Absolutly make sure he knows how you’re feeling about his reaction to the situation. I also have been having family issues due to the wedding and it’s tough! In the end though remember it is your wedding, your shower not your Future Sister-In-Law.
