I think that if you’ve got most of the planning organized, getting a wedding planner at this stage is unnecessary. One thing you could do is hire a day-of co-ordinator. That might be a sort of compromise with your mom.

Good luck! I don’t envy your position.

Maybe you can give your mom another job you need help with, so you are involving her, but in a way that stays true to your ideas. Is there any DIY project or anything like that that still needs to be done?

No compromise.  I think you need to remind her that this is YOUR wedding and there will be no planner because you said so.  The only person you need to compromise with is your Fiance.  She needs to get over it and just relax.  That is hard for some moms but true none the less.  Good luck

You could always contact the planner yourself and tell them that you have all of the details together already so you just need a DOC. They can handle all of the last min things with your vendors and since there is nothing for her to plan your mom won’t be able to change anything. That way your mom can help out without putting her 2 cents in because everything is already done. Less stress for you the week of. It’s sort of a compromise.. right?

This is one time where her overbearing attitude shouldn’t just be tolerated

But I would try and think of a task that she can do and give her complete responsibility for that.
