@aribari:Say nothing, it’s his family and that is not a battle you can win. Get someone that actually loves you and wants to be there to MC the ceremony.

Woah, your Future Sister-In-Law used the “d” word two weeks before your wedding??  You definitely don’t need that kind of negativity around you.  At least the job of excluding her from your wedding will be easier since she obviously doesn’t want to be there.  Do you have a better candidate who can fill in as MC?

Do you think maybe she has some anxiety about traveling? Or maybe some other anxiety that isn’t related to you (unfortunately it affects you thought if she doesn’t come)?

You say, “Oh, I’m so, so sorry that you won’t be able to make it.  I’m sure your brother will be heartbroken.” and leave it at that.  You don’t want anyone there who does not want to be there, especially someone who is mentioning that you are going to be using her for your divorce.  Whatever is going on with her is out of your control, so just relax and enjoy the next two weeks and your wedding day!

@aribari: What a huge beotch!!! Omg! That’s just awful. I would have a hard time keeping my mouth shut, but pick your battles right? I would find a new MC, tell her how much you’ll all miss her, and move on with life. I hope she lives far away so you don’t have to deal with her often.

um, wow. tell her to stay home. A stranger would make a better MC than this woman.  I wonder what “Miss Manners” would say about this? She would probably have some clever, back-handed remark for your Future Sister-In-Law. I have none, but would just be thankful she’s not going to be in any pics. I feel bad for your FH though… it must hurt to have his own sister be so nasty towards you both.

I’m glad someone responded because i read this when you first posted.  And i was at a loss for words.  I couldn’t think of a darn constructive or sarcastic remark.  Except to call her and tell her to EFFFFFF OFFF which i’m sure won’t help.  Good luck, on your wedding and may she not show up.

Wow!  I feel very bad for your poor Fiance.  Get over her, she clearly doesn’t want to be there-so at least she won’t be there to spoil anything!  I’m sorry.

Ugh.  Sorry you’re having to deal with this.  I’d relieve her of her the responsibility and get someone else, but I’m a hard-*ss.  It comes from having the queen of passive-aggression for a mother.

The good part here is that you can ask someone else to MC, and see how honored and touched and excited 99% of your other friends/family would be to have such a big part in your wedding. 

This girl has issues.  They are not your fault, and you don’t have to cater to them.  Stay strong!

Yikes.  Ask someone else to be MC and be thankful she isn’t coming?  Sorry you have to deal with this.  She obviously has issues.
