I would have walked right up to them and asked them to stop being disrespectful.  In my opinion, it works better in the moment.  I had to do it once at my grandmother’s funeral.  Someone was there who was saying very disrespectful things, and I just walked up to her and said “This is a funeral to honor my grandmother.  If you can’t be respectful, I would ask that you leave.”  She left.  People who act like children get treated like children.

spaghettipolicy :  Your sisters in law remind me of these two:

My advice would be to treat them in a cordial but icy manner. As if they are beneath you, because due to their behavior, they really are.

Honestly they’re acting like little mean girl bitches. If you confront them directly about your feelings, they’re just going to snicker behind your back for being lame. 


They don’t care about your feelings – they think they’re too cool for your feelings – they care about being more important than everyone else. Girls like this respond best to being made to feel stupid and immature (which they are). Rather than causing more drama for them to gossip and laugh about, a casual eye roll and ignoring them will do.

I’m old and I’m different. I say blow it off. If those two little girls want to act like little girls, let them. This is the problem nowadays. We seem to not be able to ignore bad behavior. You are the one who will have to put up with them for the rest of your life. You really want to start it off this way? Telling a boorish twit that you didn’t appreciate her bad behavior will only bring more bad behavior. It’s like with children, if I was always correcting mine for the little things they did, I’d be on them all the time. Save it for the big stuff.

They want attention. Don’t give it to them.
