Maybe you could try writing to her what you feel? Sometimes when people discuss, they think more about what to answer than focus on listening. Maybe reading your thoughts and feelings without preparing her answer would make her think about it?

Or, would she listen to your father? What is his position on everything? Could he be an ally to you?

You can either do one of two things….demand that your mom stop and refuse to incorporate things she wants to pay for in the wedding and strain the good relationship you both have during wedding planning.  Or ask her why she wants those things and use them for another purpose.  Glass coasters=guest table seating…voila! no longer favors and you can still do the candy bar.  Breakfast=afternoon brunch…that way you don’t have to get up early and neither do your out-of town guests…If you don’t want to see anyone altogether the day after you’ll have to think of something else…

If you really feel strongly about the candy bar, I sudgest just paying for it yourself if you can.  My mother is planning on handing out some favors that I don’t want (we’re paying for our entire wedding ourselves & I have already brought the materials for my favors), but I’m just letting her do it, it will make her happy.  It’s ok to have more than one favor, my friend had a whole bag of about 6 favors!
