eek! Sorry she’s being this way 🙁 She probably feels awkward that she cant help with paying for stuff.

I’ve heard it said a LOT of times here on the boards: If someone isn’t paying, they shouldn’t know the budget”

I understand wanting to try dresses on with her, but try your hardest not to let her know the prices. Ask the sales people not to tell her the price of anything, get quotes on dresses you like privately, buy the dress separately when she isn’t there.

It’s tough, but it’ll cut down on your drama. Just keep telling her, “Don’t worry about it Mom, FI and I have saved up what we’ll need for the wedding. You don’t need to stress over any of the finances.” whenever she asks what ANYTHING costs. Don’t give in – just refuse to discuss finances of the wedding with her (indirectly of course!).

if she isnt paying for the dress then, and she thinks your budget is too high then you shouldnt even tell her the price. just show her the pics of them and get her opinion on the actual style of the dress rather than the price. your paying so it should a be a price you are comfortable with and not her
