That sucks.  I wouldn’t discuss money with her from now on.

I got an uncomfortable comment like this from my mom about my FI’s parents (who are super old and on a fixed income and who were impacted by Katrina!!) and I was very firm and just said that we would handle it. That seemed to do the trick for me, but I feel for you.

Just change the money subject any time it comes up.  If she’s not paying for it, she has no need to know what it costs.

@Woodstock:  Don’t discuss $$ with her. I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that it was traditional for the bride’s family to pay for the wedding (which I assume includes the rehearsal dinner)… so you could just tell her that lol. Or maybe not since she is paying for the reception. Just weird.

My mom does the same thing… I just say Father-In-Law didn’t contribute to their own daughter’s wedding so I am not expecting it for ours.
