- Wedding: August 2012
I have always been extremely close to my mother and when I got engaged, I thought what better person to help me plan my wedding, than my mother? Well what I thought would be my mom helping me pick out colors, location among many other things; it turned into my mom TELLING me what to do. She has stated what time the wedding should start, where the ceremony should be, the type of food, how many guests she wants to invite, I can go on and on. My mom is helping pay for most of the wedding, my fiancé and I are helping with what we can and so are his parents. It seems like my mom feels that if she is paying for the wedding, then she should have a say in the matter. How do I make her understand that it’s my wedding? She already had her wedding and planned it like she wanted it?
Thank you for any thoughts on this matter!
