@MrsFarm0619:  I think many people have someone like that in their life.The secret is to realize and accept that she is never going to change.

You can let her upset you, or you can make a conscious choice to not let her push your buttons. “I’ll take that under consideration.” “Thanks for your input.” etc etc etc then just let anything she says fly right over your head- in one ear and out the other.

Yeah I can relate! The way I deal with it is focus on the opinions of those who support me and my decisions. And I try at all costs to avoid getting into a conversation about wedding stuff with that person. Sometimes it’s easier said than done, since this person literally cornered me and followed me around the damn house this weekend screaming and crying that I was not going to pick the bridesmaid dresses she wanted. 

Just try to walk away and stay calm. Those people are just not worth your energy. Anything she tells you or recommends- ignore it or do a non-commital “yeah, maybe” and then continue on your way. Good luck!
