I’m sorry.  That doesn’t sound like fun at all.  My suggestion to you would be to just let her have her way.  Since you didn’t really want the wedding in the first place, try your hardest to not let your MIL and her demands annoy you.  Let her plan “your” wedding even though you know it’s really for her.  Maybe if you look at is as something you’re doing for your husband and your MIL, then this whole wedding will be less annoying and stressful for you.  I know it’s easier said than done.  Just vent to your family and friend or come here to vent.

It could be worse….you could be going through all of that AND paying for it! That is essentially wht happened to my good friend–it took her 3 years to pay off the big tacky wedding she didn’t want because her MIL was a fire-breathing Momzilla! Buckle down; it’ll be over soon!

@Bunpun:  Yeah, just shut it down. It sounds like you’re just being set up for a miserable day.

In my culture it is custom for the groom’s parents to pay too, but my dad paid because he makes more money and we did not want MIL controlling anything in the wedding. Would have been a nightmare.

OMG – poor thing – but look at the other side. What if she hated you and didn’t even acknowledge your wedding…..

Parents get like that and sometimes don’t even know it. How about asking your fiance to have a heart to heart with her? He needs to step up to the plate so you can avoid this kind of drama in the future.

Don’t know if this helps but somehow she needs to know that your going to do this out of respect to her and it’s not what you had planned….

Just remember — no matter what —- IT’S YOUR DAY! No one should be able to take it from you.  Wishing you luck…..
