The only solution is to covertly get your mother drunk, at the reception and allow her to get rowdy and knock over the tall centerpieces…that way, she gets to be right…because it’s the ONLY way any of that crap will actually happen.

First of all, is she close to this neighbor? Just kinda wondering how he got an invite in the first place. But as for your mom, I don’t know of any good way to convince her other than just reiterating that you’re sure everyone will drink responsibly. Maybe share stories from weddings you’ve been to where people behaved like rational people?

@redhead_bride82413:  It would be hard to say anything without hurting her feelings, especially since she is paying a large portion.  But ultimately i would let her know if anyone got too rowdy they would be asked to leave or something along those lines.  Or there will be a drink limit maybe???
