If she is paying for it ALL then there is not much you can do here. You can try to put your foot down about the wedding and do what you want, but really it’s her money and you run the risk of her rescinding her offer of paying then. If she’s driving you that crazy it might be best to consider not taking her money and paying for it all yourselves. We had to do the same thing when FI’s mom wanted to pay for our honeymoon then decided she was going to pick the resort, time, etc. We told her that was not okay she offered us a gift and is now attaching strings, so we made our decision and paid for it ourselves, and later informed her of the plans. People will ask for an inch and take a mile so don’t give them that inch & it’s all good. 

How does your FI feel about all this? It’s his mom has he tried talking to her about the situation? Does he agree with you or is her ambivalent? His support is crucial in dealing with his mom.
