@BM-Matty: I have a jealous sister, but my scenario is slightly different than yours. My Fiance family is the one contributing to the wedding. I can easily choose to leave my sister out of the planning details, and that works well for me.

I know you don’t have the same option, but this is where you can bring parents in to assist. Does your brother have these outbursts in front of your parents? If so, your parents will be privy to his behavior. You can address your brother immediately after he makes his comments to show you won’t stand for it, and you can pull your parents aside and ask them to speak with him. Tell them what kind of unnecessary stress he’s putting on your shoulders, and ask them to approach him about it in private. He shouldn’t be making you feel badly about getting married. Likely he will be married one day as well.

If you’re not agreeable to that, ask your parents to kindly work on the wedding with you privately, and do not broadcast to your brother what’s being spent on you, or what kind of time your parents are putting in to orchestrating the event with you. Keep it as transparent to him as possible, and you’ll save lots of stress to yourself, and even to him. (Not that he matters much on YOUR day. 😉 )
