LOL. I’m sorry, but that absolutely is not helping with the wedding. If she chooses to host people from out of town, that’s great, but not directly related to the cost of the wedding; it’s helpful for the out of towners. Now, if she were to pay for their plates, that would be helping…

I’m sorry she’s being so self-centered. My SIL’s mom is a bit like that, and wasn’t involved in a lot of the wedding because she was “tired” or “not feeling well” or whatever other excuse she had for everything (including not coming to their engagement party). Maybe your Future Mother-In-Law can compensate a bit with motherly acts. 🙂

Seems to me she wants to “show off” her new kitchen to your Out of Town wedding guests, and she thinks your guests’ reactions matter to you, as well. Doesn’t really help you with your wedding, though! But for someone who may be a little self-centered, I can see how she might see it that way. I can also see how it would be so frustrating for you!

Wow… That’s some serious justification, there.

It’s kinda like saying “I’m helping with the wedding, I bought myself a mustang!” – Because she won’t be showing up to the wedding in an old beat up honda and insulting the valet… 0_o
