Don’t give in.  Especially if you and your Fiance are paying for this yourselves.  You set limits for a reason, and one exception will just lead to more exceptions.  It was totally unreasonable for your mother to get so upset about this.

Don’t give in.  Your mother is being unreasonable.

This is why I am so glad that we are paying for everything ourselves. We might not be able to have the most awesome wedding in the world, but it will still be very nice.

And I know this sounds disrespectful, but had that been my mother, I’d have hung up on her before I listened that kind of crap.

I   agree with Paigey! In addition I would also refuse any help she is offering and tell Dad why you are declining thier help.

I declined the $15000 “gift” from my Future Mother-In-Law for that very reason and it is the BEST decision I could have made. Even if I have to work Overtime to pay for my own wedding I still have my sanity and a relationship with my Future Mother-In-Law after the wedding. I really don’t take crap from anyone and even after declining the money Future Mother-In-Law had a tantrum when I did not get her approval before I booked vendors. As soon as she started I put a stop to it! I also told Future Father-In-Law why she was mad at me and the things she said to me and he ripped her a new one! LOL

Hold your ground sister.

 This is your wedding not her family reunion.
