During the course of wedding planning, did any family/friend/loved one(s) threaten to not attend your wedding if you did not incorporate x (x = whatever item that you did not want to incorporate)? My mother and I recently had a fight as she threatend to not attend the wedding if we did not hire a limosine to pick us up, when in reality we want to rent a car to drive ourselves.

If your mom is willing to help pay for and manage the limo service, that would be one thing. But it doesn’t sound like that is the case.
This day is about you and your new husband. As hard as it is, you must do what is right for you. If it feels wrong to rent the limo, kindly take her recommendations into consideration, but do your plan at the end of the day.
Maybe you could compromise by renting a suburban like SUV and having a friend drive you around in it, almost like a limo but probably more cost effective.
