Since you said you’re an opinionated person, I’m guessing she thinks as soon as she tells you about it, you’ll start giving her too much input, and maybe that stresses her out. And I bet she is planning something more formal than you had in mind. If you trust her judgement, then probably just leave it as is and hope for the best. Or, you could get your fiance to try and gently pry some information out of her.

kristin36890 : yikes!! I honestly even didn’t consider that the rehearsal dinner could “compete” with the wedding. Now I’m even more worried. Future Mother-In-Law likes to impress people so I wouldn’t put it past her to try and top the wedding.
akshali2000 : she said she picked “the” place, so I don’t think that’s the case! Maybe she’s still working out kinks.
I’m mostly annoyed cuz she weasled her way into our planning (see above reply). I’ve been trying to play nice but apparently that’s not going to work out.

wonderwedding : While I’m an opinionated person, she sure can give it right back. Haha! I always tease Fiance cuz his mom and I are actually more similar personality-wise than I’d like to admit. I think that’s why our relationship works out – he knows how to handle an opinionated woman, he’s been doing it his whole life! 😜
