That stinks! Sounds like she’s a real winner! lol.

You might not be able to control what she wears, but it will only make HER look bad. Not you. =)

Enjoy your special day!!

Hi, date twin!!  Less than two months to go!!  YAY!

Okay, onto the CRAZY.  She’s nuts.  Whacked.  Seriously.  And there is NOTHING you can do about it.  If I were you, I would work really hard on trying to think this is funny.  Let her wear whatever she’s going to wear (sidenote: that’s a super cute dress, where’s it from), and she’ll look ridiculous, NOT YOU!  You can’t waste any more of your energy trying to make her do or say the right things…she’s not gonna do it.  I’m sorry you’re dealing with this!  ((HUGS))

Wow, she’s a handful.  I’m sorry you guys have to deal with her drama.  The good thing is that he’s not that close to her, so avoiding her issues is much easier.

Wow she sounds um…intersting? Sorry she’s being a wacko! If she confronts you about the situation of telling your Fiance I would say “Yes you did say that” otherwise, she’ll keep pulling the same crap. If you think she is going to cause drama, embarrass you/FI at the wedding and she already has said she isnt’ coming multiple times I would ask Fiance if he really wants her there and if he says no have him tell her that she is no longer welcome. It sounds like she is very rude (dissing Fiance in front of people!), wearing a not appropriate dress to your formal wedding. It sounds like she doesn’t have a good relationship with either of you and you should just keep her at a distance from your wedding and life.

Can I just say that you are a saint! Kudos to you for dealing with your kooky Future Mother-In-Law so well.  How sweet of you to pay for most of her dress and not telling your FH to protect his feelings. Personally, I think it was a blessing for your FH to not have been raised by her.

People like that are tough to deal with. You can’t make sense of why they do what they do.  You kind of just have to do your best to not let them get to you, and it sounds like you do a great job of that. Enjoy planning your wedding and your special day and don’t let this basketcase take away a single second of it!

Your Fi sounds like a smart man by wanting to write her off, personally I would write her off, she sounds hateful, selfish and she’s a manipulative liar…..so basically she’s toxic. I hate drama, it makes me angry and anxious so I just don’t allow these types to be part of my life, pure and simple. I know it’s his Mother and all but from what I read, she’s never been much of Mom…..all she seems to do is cause you both upset, only you can allow her to continue. I’ve lived this, I no longer speak to my Mother because she is also a toxic person who brought nothing but negativity to my life. Just because someone is your family does not mean you have to tolerate their bs. 🙂
