@meaghan608:  

Without knowing your full situation, I’m going to offer up two sensible causes as to why she hasn’t been involved with planning since your e-mail.

One: She’s busy.  It happens to all of us.

Two: Your wedding is in August 2014.  It’s over a year away.  You have the date and venue.  She might not feel super pressured to plan anything more yet.

I’m not sure how different your styles are, but I wouldn’t give “complete control” to your mother.  You and your FI need to have a say.  This is your wedding, not your mom’s play wedding, though you can certainly take her advice or suggestions.

@meaghan608:  …Whose wedding is this, again? I get you want your mom to behave like a rational adult, but there is no way she’d have complete control over my wedding. Period.
