Wow! Sounds like your future-in-laws are gonna be a handful! You have my deepest sympathies – not a lot of advice, but you’ve come to the right place! You’re definitely not alone with the crazy in-laws here 🙂

Wow  your daughter might have the same monster in law as me!

The best thing she, you and her fiancé can do is set boundaries. Set boundaries early and stick to them. If sha asks to come to more wedding meetings, it’s ok to say no. 

Stick to your head count and blush is a beautiful shade of pink!

if shes like my mother in law, she will get crazier the closer the wedding gets. 

But seriously, if you and your daughter don’t set boundaries now, she will be a nightmare on everything.

ultimately, the wedding is about your daughter and her son getting married. She doesn’t need every friend invited, people can figure out bridal shower invites (it’s not complicated) and frankly, most of the stuff you mentioned is none of her business!

@motherofthebrideAR:  Sorry you’re going through this – that sounds really rough! *hug*

Personally, I would tell her that if she’s not financially contributing to the wedding, she just doesn’t get a say.  Honestly, it’s only the people who PAY that get a SAY! 

Put her in her place!

Good luck!

I’m sorry! No matter what, you keep stocking up for your daughter. Maybe encourage her to talk to her Fiance. Some words from him to MOG may help things out a bit. I hope that your Future Sister-In-Law is sticking up for your daughter, too.

Omg, she sounds like a total nightmare!

Stick to your guns and set boundaries. Planning a wedding is stressful enough and this woman is making it worse for you and your daughter. She doesn’t like the colors, she doesn’t like the location, the date, the guest numbers… sorry, but she can shove it. This is your daughter and her fiance’s day. The Mother-In-Law already had her chance; now she needs to let your daughter have hers.

If she wants to come to something and you feel she will be an ogre, say NO. And I would not tell her anymore about what your daughter is planning/doing.

Good luck with this crazy in-law situation!
