What would you do in this situation?

I am with my husband 6years and during this time his sister has continuously bullied and humiliated me any opportunity she got, especially at his family events. Her treatment progressively got worse after I became engaged to her brother. I have tried talking to her but she is so angry and aggressive I feel she would physically assault me given the chance. I have told my husband and he recognises something's up but tells me to ignore her and its just the way she is. At our recent wedding she ruined the day by insulting my family, friends and guests. She shouted abuse to my father during his speech, she ripped the train on my dress by purposely sticking her heel into it and she was overheard saying she will stop at nothing to get rid of me. I spent the remainder of the night crying and my husband told me to ignore her. No one in his family condemns anything that she does and it fuels her. I have done nothing to justify her treatment and I just cant take it anymore. What angers me most is my husbands refusal to stand up to her and his family's constant need to protect her and make up excuses to justify her behaviour. If this continues I will end my marriage. Has any of your listeners being in similar situations and how did they handle it
