I love my mother-in-law-to-be, she is awesome. But she doesn’t want to light the candles with my mom in the beginning of the ceremony and every time I ask her about stuff to do with the wedding she says, “we’ll talk about it later”. When is later??? I have 5 months left before the wedding and I really don’t have time to wait for “later”.

Don’t get offended by your Mother-In-Law. You still have time to get things done. Also she may not want to light the candle for fear of fire or for religious reasons. I don’t want candles at my ceremony because I’m afraid of catching on fire. It has happened once to me in another ceremony. Bottom of my dress caught fire.
You need to have your Fiance talk to his mom about wedding related stuff

I can empathize with you, my Future Mother-In-Law also keeps giving me the “we’ll talk about it later.” The current project I can’t get her to make decisions on is the rehearsal dinner. I was contacted by the venue to start finalizing details, and I forwarded this request on to her and asked her what she thought…and it was a week before we heard from her. She sent back a few questions, and I answered them THAT day and it was another week until we heard back from her. Finally I just asked her how she would like to proceed, I even offered to put her in direct contact with the venue so I wouldn’t have to be the middle mand, and we ultimately have decided we’ll sit down on the phone tomorrow.
If I were you, I’d just have Fiance call her and set up a time to talk about details x, y, z. Unfortunately, you might have to plan the conversation — and make sure Fiance emphasizes you are trying to get these details taken care of within a certain time frame.
