The cousin is already a guest at the wedding. If your Mom wants him to escort her down the aisle, that does not make him part of the wedding party, nor does it mean he is in any pictures.

The parents of the groom and the MOB are seated before the processional starts, unless your Mom is escorting you .

As far as any other interference, there comes a time when, if you are mature enough to get married, you have to be mature enough to stand up to your Mom.

OMG!  That’s awful!  I often fear my mom will show up in bridal gear too!  I understand not wanting to make conflict.  However, I think you have to put your foot down and just say “No!”  to your mom.  She’s getting away with…well…you know 🙂  Don’t let her ruin your day.  Remind her who’s boss here, and that she doesn’t have to be there if she doesn’t like the way things are going.  Sounds like she needs a dose of reality!  Power to the Brides!

Repeat after me – “mom, this is my wedding, not yours!”

She isn’t helping you pay, but wants it her way? Sorry, doesn’t go that way!! Put your foot down, and keep it down.

I expected my mom to be this way, but thankfully she was actually awesome during planning. THe only request she made was to invite my great aunt’s and uncles, since my grandma had passed and couldn’t be there. And I love them, so of course that was a no brainer. I really wish other girls on her could have an awesome experience like I did 🙁

@HCaitlin: “SHRIEK”! MOB wears veils these days? I didn’t know that. 

Elders are stubborn and always believe they are right. There is no changing that in them. The only thing you can really do is sit her down and put her on her place. MAke it clear that it is YOUR wedding and she needs to be more supportive of what you want and like. You also need to be straight with her about not wanting your cousin to be part of the extended wedding party.
