Honestly, I don't understand why you gave certain information, like your wedding being bigger than you initially wanted, but don't actually give examples of the "crap" that your one SIL used to say. I find it a bit odd that you're hanging onto what that former SIL said, too, as later you make it seem that she's not even part of the family, and not part of current issues, now.

I get the feeling that you are holding onto a lot of resentment that has built up, and you're letting that resentment affect how you are dealing with relatively small things. It's not everyone else's fault that you only have your kids from your first marriage 2 weekends per month and scheduled other things that made it difficult for you to schedule and reschedule your son's birthday party. I actually didn't get the impression that you got buy-in from everyone about the initial date before you got the invitations out to your in-laws. Who planned the shower anyway? If it wasn't a relative, than I'm not sure that you really have a reason to get mad at your relatives for the date of the shower being the same as your initial date for your son's party.
