I have nothing to say other than big hugs and enjoy your wedding.  It sounds like it’ll be what you want and you haven’t given in to her demands when it comes to fundamentals, good for you!  Hopefully the craziness will pass once the wedding’s been and gone 🙂

I have a similar situation! My mother actually is paying for the venue/food but my fiance and I are covering the vendors. I actually didn’t take her with me to get my dress because she is way too critical ( but thank god she liked it). We bump heads about everything; I like a more non traditional vintage/rustic look. I am making the centerpieces and odds and ends for some decor. I am not really taking her opinions because it requires me wasting more money on flowers and other things.

I am learning to just to what I want and I then consult her. But then she tells others I dont include her in the planning ( I wonder why!!) My mom is traditional and not open minded; thinks everything needs to be five star quality. It makes me sad we can’t get along better but I refuse to make decisions because  she wants it that way. I try to remember that this is MY WEDDING..not hers!! It is too hard for me to hold my tongue because we are both stubborn. I hope it goes quickly for you and you enjoy YOUR day!!! Time does fly by! Just know you aren’t alone!!

I just want to say one thing to you. You only have ONE mother. I know it’s very frustrating dealing with her right now, but once the wedding is over, she’s still your mom.

I used to fight with my mom all the time too, that is until she died suddenly at age 53. Now I would do anything to see her or talk to her again. I miss her so much.

So just try to suck it up, do what you want to do anyway, and love your mom while you still have her.
