Are you serious? That’s insane! I just wouldn’t respond and call it a day.

Oh good, I’m not the only one who’s future In-Laws are physchotic. 

I’m sorry you’re dealing with this hun.  You’ll get through it, just remember you have a man who loves you and is on the same page as you when it comes to his family.  So it’s not something you have to fight over–it’s something you can laugh about together.

I suggest you do exactly what your husband suggested that you do…and call it a day.

I would ignore the email completely.

holy jeebus! I would certainly not be sending any money. I would say something like, “considering we paid xxx for your unexpected arrival to our rehearsal dinner, I think we’re even” and leave it at that.

unbelievable!

And I though MY MOTHER was bad! sheesh!  

I agree, send the email off that your hubby said to say and leave it at that.

DO NOT send any more $$$!!!  Just make sure you get the chainsaws back. 🙂  Even if it means going to her house and demanding them…. with an officer in tow 😉 (What? I’d totally do that even if it were my family!)

How about just ignore the email altogether. Don’t send her any money, just don’t respond!

It sounds like if you don’t shut this down now, you’re going to be dealing with this the rest of your lives….

Send her a big long e-mail about your lives and how the grass is growing and the brids are chirping and the money tree out back hasn’t yet started to bloom. But when it does she will be the first one to get paid.

Holy *#&@*#!!!  Do NOT give that woman a penny.  If there is arleady no relationship and no fear of runining anything that might be good, I completely agree with your DH!  Write back .. and then say.. by the way, you’re entire familys dinner was $400, we’d appreciate if you sent us reimbursement, especially for showing up unannounced

That is CRAZY! Write her a sassy email back so that she knows it’s not okay to come at you with her crazy in the future.

Something short and sassy, like “Glad to hear you’re doing well. I will definitely have that check out for $16 for you choosing to ship a gift to us as soon as you can cut me that check for $400 for showing up unannounced with your friends and family to our rehearsal dinner, which was $50 a head. Thanks!”

Don’t give that lady any money.

Honestly, I would do exactly what your DH told you to do.  Write a really long email about absolutely nothing and then ask her to reimburse you for the rehearsal dinner.  I can’t believe the nerve of some people.  Wow.
