You’re handling it so well! It sounds like she’s trying to live through you. My FMIL had no ceremony or anything to her wedding, so she tries to do random things to help and give suggestions, usually getting quite pushy. I try to just smile and thank her and get very far away. Stick to your guns and stay strong to your ideas. 🙂

@MASPA: Your doing really well. I think you should continue to stick to your guns. I think your Fiance will have to step in sooner or later and have the talk with her though

I don’t know, I think it’s really nice that she’s interested and she’s reaching out to you in a way. Maybe that’s just her way. Have you thought about involving her in other ways, maybe a DYI project?

Remember, she’s not just “the woman who birthed” your Fiance, she’s his mother, and will continue to be always.

Oh God, nightmare lady!

Sounds like she just wants to help. And subliminally interject her opinions. I would just keep doing what you are doing and ignore her. If it gets worse, I would calmly approach her and tell her that you appreciate her help, and you will contact her if you need anything. Sounds like if you get upset she will go off.
