Ohhh mothers! Take the help that you can get from them, but basically consider them another wedding guest. Don’t worry about her option unless she throws a hissy-fit. I’m sure the veil is beautiful! Ask your maid of honor how it looks for a better option, and probably rely on her for most of the help as well. 

Keep up with the great DIY options and don’t worry about moms 🙂

I’m sure your veil is great!  It sounds like you put a lot of effort into it and I’m sure it looks fantastic.  It just sounds like the vision she had in her head was different than the vision you had in yours.

I can see how that would be frustrating, though.  My mom would always say my ideas were ‘dumb’ and didn’t understand why I wanted to DIY certain things (eg. my headpiece).  Then I think she saw how stressed I was getting, and when she tried to brainstorm with me she found out how hard it is, and now I feel like I’m getting a lot more cooperation!  Maybe she doesn’t realize how much work it is, or how much it is affecting you.

My ex-husband used to do that to me.  If he made a comment at all about something I had done, it would be negative.

The funny thing was that he attended my second wedding, and afterward made a comment about my “beautiful chuppah” (Jewish wedding canopy), which I DIYed.  I felt like asking him, “Who are you, and what did you do with my real ex-husband?”

The good news is that when it is your mother, at least you won’t have to live with her after the wedding.
