My Future Mother-In-Law can be a bit passive agressive and whatnot, but like yours an overall good person. Yeah, it can totally be frustrating!

Kudos (KUDOS) to you for handling it so well! I’m sure that your Fiance appreciates it. Just keep doing what you’re doing and don’t give in to her. She wants a big scene. If she wants to wear a heavy brown dress, let her. She’ll probably come to the realization right quick that it’s hot and change into something more suitable. When she makes some snarky sarcastic remark about the rehearsal dinner, just say “okay, can’t wait to see you!” and leave it at that.

One thing that does bother me a bit is FI’s reluctance to get involved. It’s his mother, he should be the one working with her for this very reason. A relationship between the two of them can’t be ruined as easily as a relationship between the two of you.

It sounds like her kids know she’s a total witch…I mean you did 95% of the work…sounds like the rest of her kids don’t feel she deserved a nice party.  I would just try to avoid/ignore her until after the wedding.  Why deal with that stress?  In any case your Fiance doesn’t sound like he’s too fond of her so maybe after you’re married she’ll be in his life a lot less.
