Is your FMIL paying for the party?

She is demanding you have a AHR for her friends and she is not going to foot the bill. This is just wrong.
Sorry you have to deal with this.

All I can say is good luck. I wish I could tell you that it gets better but then I would be lying. We have been engaged for over 2 years and his mom is still like this.
Good luck and make sure you FI helps you out!

My opinion is to let your FMIL throw you a party, show up at least to meet these people. For some reason my parents are like your FMIL - their friends are important to them. They just probably want to show you off and they are extremely proud that their son is getting married. But you shouldn't have to pay a dime for it. I know you really dont want to but would it hurt at all? If so then stand your ground.

Personally, it sounds like this may be one of those things you're just going to have to suck up.
But, I'd lay some ground rules - and be firm. Like (a) they throw it, they pay for it; ( short and sweet - a 2-hour cocktail party on a Sunday afternoon; © low key - not at the four seasons ball room, etc. and (d) ONLY one event - have it be fairly close to the wedding date (within a few months), so that it can't be done again tastefully.
Just my two cents.
Happily married since 2008
