Ugh, I wish I knew the solution to this problem, as it is very similar to what I’ve been working through with my boyfriend and his parents (mainly his mother). Honestly, I think you’re right in your thinking that the issues exist between your fiance and her mother, and even though you obviously want to be protective of your fiance and defend her from her mother’s harsh words, it’s not really your place to step in. You can however do your best to try to include her mother in the events leading up to your wedding to hopefully make her feel like she is being included and heard. It’s definitely a hard line to straddle because on the one hand, you want to make nice with her and alleviate the situation between her and your fiance, but on the other hand, you probably don’t really want her input on your wedding. But I think that if you and your fiance make an effort to show her that you want to include her, it could go a long way.

But seriously, good luck. Your situation sounds so similar to ours right now, and I know how tough it is to try to find a place for yourself in your significant other’s family and try to be a part of things without overstepping. Feel free to pm me, and again, good luck! Smile
