Wow, that’s awful! If it were me, I would just exclude her from planning, and don’t honor any requests, but then again, I’m pretty spiteful in that regard

@TequilaSunrise:  That’s just…ugh, I can’t even find the right word for what it is!! At least you have the aunt on your side! I would just ignore the Mother-In-Law as much as you can, or do you think the aunt would be pissed  if you called Mother-In-Law out? Doesn’t seem like she would, but I know you don’t want to rock the boat with her.

@TequilaSunrise:  I swear, we’re in exactly the same position.  Fi’s mom has always been sweet as pie to me, and now she’s getting verrrrry passive aggressive.  I just kind of shrug and vent about it to my friends.  Bottom line, we can’t let them get to us.  Just because we’re not getting married in tuxes and ballgowns with a sit down dinner and all the trimmings doesn’t mean we’re not having “real” weddings.

What a horrible situation. If you trust that what the aunt says is true I would tell your Fiance – my mainreason being he should be having a major talk with his mother and also because he might be angry if he finds out later (angry with you for not telling him).

I really hope it works out. You’re right though – it is YOUR day (you and your FI’s) not hers!

my thoughts are if you are talking to FI’s aunt about FI’s mom i guess they are talking about you – no good can come from multiple sources of gossip so maybe a little less sharing is needed.  if they are anything like my mom they have too much free time on their hands so they bitch
