Why are you making your mom deal with her?

She’s your aunt and it’s your wedding- tell her “thanks, but no thanks”.

She’s already showing that she’s pushy, so I wouldn’t try to involve her.

Agree with pp; it’s completely unfair to make your mom deal with her. It’s YOUR wedding and your responsibility to tell your aunt if she’s over-stepping herself, especially if you’re close. Tell her you’d appreciate it if she’d run her suggestions/ideas/wedding purchases by you in the future.

No, you don’t need to try to involve her in your vision. Just keep reminding her that you’re “taking care of everything” and she shouldn’t worry. Only tell her details after they’ve been booked, bought and confirmed.
