Sorry, just need to rant for a minute. So my FMIL is a really sweet woman, but she has a big personality and can be a lot to handle at times. Now, some background info... my mom and sister (MOH) are throwing me a bridal shower in my hometown (about 4 hours away) but are also including a zoom option so that my friends that anyone who feels uncomfortable in large groups can participate as well.
My FMIL sent a note to my sister after receiving her invitation and told her that the gifts purchased off of our registry will all be sent to one address (duh, I provided mine and FH's address for this when we set up our registry) and to tell everyone to have gifts sent to her house. None of this makes sense to me because 1. FMIL is going to be attending the shower via zoom, 2. FH and I live about 45 minutes from FMIL so it isn't convenient for us to have to go and get them, and 3. If we wanted to have them sent anywhere else for the sake of convenience we would obviously have them sent to my parents' house where the shower will be held. My sister politely told her that we had the shipping address covered and thanked her for her offer. Then next thing I know FMIL sends an email to her entire family and all of her friends who are invited (including myself) telling them that all gifts for the shower and wedding should be sent to her house.
My mom and sister got really upset with me over this because they think that she is assuming I will be going to her house to attend the shower via zoom instead of going to my parents' house (not too far of a reach, TBH). FH is annoyed with her because he thinks she's just trying to take whatever little bit of control she thinks she can. I don't really care, but am a bit annoyed that it's going to add an extra hour and a half to my drive when I leave for my shower to have to pick these gifts up.
She has been doing so well recently with not overstepping, but this one really came out of the blue.
