This is your wedding, not your moms. That means you need to be the one to contact venues, make arrangements with the bridal party etc. From here on to the wedding I would take care of things that need to be done directly and when your mom asks about things tell her it is already taken care of.

@nicolejoshwed:  If they are not taking this seriously, than you have the right to change the wedding line up. That is absolutely sad she will not confirm with your wedding so close. There are still dresses and stuff to buy and some places take weeks for stuff to come in.

It is time to take the bull by the horns and stand up to your mother. You are the bride. Remind her. The PP had a good point. It is time to do stuff on your own and block your mother from knowing if she is going to be a hinderance.

 

What else has happened against your wishes for your wedding? Maybe we can give you ideas to change?

@nicolejoshwed:  So she is financially blackmailing you? Yeah call her bluff. Wedding planning made me soo assertive towards my family I think they are afriand of me. I don’t want you to be like my dear friend. She let her mother run all over her wedding planning and 7 years later she is still upset over her wedding.

Can she actually pull her deposit at this point? Wouldn’t the balance be due in about 10 days?

Do you have any way to get in contact with the girls’ dad? Facebook, phone books, other relatives?

@nicolejoshwed:  That’s the best decision to make! I had to do it with my mother. Keeo everything “mmhmm” or “We are still deciding on that” ie vague and everything will be ok. Feel freel to get another call on the other line and end your conversation or all of a sudden not feel well.
