I doubt that this is new behavior for her. What coping techniques  have you used up until now?

Listen to her concerns, thank her for her opinion and let the rest fly over your head.

You are soon to be married and making all your own decisions in life. Time to gain a little control on how you let your mom affect you.

So sorry to hear what you are going through. If I were you, I would just do whatever makes you happy, not what makes other people happy. You’re the bride, it’s your day. Surround yourself with people who are supportive. You don’t want to look back and regret not doing things your way. Sending you lots of hugs and lots of luck:)

I’d just ask her “So Mom? What should I do/have/try instead?” My aunt is like this too and I find asking her what she would do in your place shuts her up pretty quick.

Only six more months at least!
