@WeddingBells2014:  It’s hard when Mom doesn’t live up to our expectations, or when our expecttions are unreal.

It sounds like your Mom might be a very frugal woman and that has probably done her well over the years. She may have a hard time spending money and likes to get the “best deal”.

Having said that, there is nothing you can do to control what she says or does. You can only control your own reaction. Picture yourself with a veil that covers you from head to toe. Nothing can penetrate the veil.

“thanks for the idea Mom. I’ll take that into consideration.”

“We’ve already got that covered Mom,but thanks for thinking of us.”

If she comes up with an idea you actually like,make sure to implement it and thank her profusely.

You could also ask her to accept repsonsibility for planning some detail that you don’t really care a lot about one way or the other.

Remember the veil.
