So the whole time time planning my wedding me and my mother have gone back and forth about a runner and an arch I do not want ether and she went out and got a runner anyway. We are having a outside wedding and it is facing a lake so I do not want a arch I do not like the looks of runners at all and I feel like she is turning my wedding into hers but she has paid for mostly everything and I have no idea what to do or to say to her i have talked to her many of times about it all but she just doesn’t understand any ideas?

Gently let her know that you love that she is excited about your wedding and that you appreciate her support. Then let her know that you really don’t like the way runners look and have mentioned this to her before. Be firm and tell her that you will not be using the runner.
She needs to return it, and if she can’t, it is her fault for buying it without your permission. Paying for a chunk of the wedding does not mean that you get to run the show. It is gracious of you to allow her some say since she is paying, but rude of her to force her desires on your wedding.

On the day of your wedding don’t pack the runner or advise the people setting up your ceremony not to lay it out. At some point stop trying to fight it and just do what you want at the end.
