@sad_84: Honestly, she sounds a bit like a three-year old throwing a tantrum when things don’t go her way. I would just try to be firm and set boundaries with her. If they aren’t contributing to the wedding monetarily, then she has no room to complain about how you plan YOUR wedding. If she wants to give advice, let her know that you’ll consider it but you need to do what is best for you and your Fiance. It sounds like maybe once she realizes her antics get her nowhere, she’ll calm down. Hopefully. LOL!

 

The one other thing I would say is to try and let your Fiance deal with her since it’s his mom – you don’t want to be getting involved in the arguments – try to let him handle the issues when they come up, no need to give her reason to think of you as the bad person in this.

Good luck and try not to let it stress you out too much – it’s your wedding and you should be enjoying this time!

@sad_84: With her being unhappy with all of the choices, I wouldn’t include her in the discussion about stuff anymore or even not mention wedding planning for awhile. If she’s reacting this way to the choices that you two are happy with, it’s best not to bring them up or show them to her. You can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself (from the wise words of Ricky Nelson).
