@EllieL: I’m pretty sure everybody has this problem on wedding bee. There are dozens of momzillas out there (just check out the emotional page!) but there is no real solution. Especially when they are paying. I empathize with you though. Perhaps use this wonderful wedding experience to not be a momzilla at your kids wedding (should you choose to have any). That’s what I would do.

Weddings are yet another place that mothers should not try to “correct” life circumstances aka their own weddings.

Good luck!

My parents were very straight forward with the idea that they are gifting us the money and we should do what we want with it. That being said, of course my mom had some ideas for the wedding. I found it easiest to just pick my battles. If I really felt strongly about something (like a small guest list) I fought her on it, and if it didn’t matter as much to me (like the shape of sugar cookies for our favors), I did what she wanted. All of her ideas that I used ended up being beautiful, even if they weren’t what I would have done, so I’m glad I listened to her.
