Is it that possible to keep her out of wedding planning as much as possible? I know she will need some details, but other than that- don’t tell her anything.

If she really isn’t paying then she doesn’t need to know. My MIL tends to share a lot of information with others and I didn’t want it getting back to other family members, so I kept a lot of the decor and choices to myself. But complaining is whole other issue.

This definitely sucks! I think the hardest part of wedding planning is remembering that its YOUR wedding and the day will be about you and your Fiance!! 

I know from my wedding planning perspectives we have decided that we will paying for almost everything ourselves to avoid the “well i am paying for it” comments from both our families. Family members love to share their ideas of how they would plan the wedding forgetting its not theirs or should I say ignoring the fact that it isn’t theirs 

My best advice is to keep her at a distance and minimal communication
