    no advice but sorry for your situation. That’s really hard especially since she is paying for it. i can see why she feels she can make decisions for you. maybe just waiting a couple of days and then coming back and saying “hey mom, i was thinking about what you said the other day about _____ and I decited i dont want ____” or ” I decited I dont think it is necessary”  It can be a very casual conversation though i know you are worried about it being awkward. good luck!

    If your parents are paying for it – they are the hosts and they should have say in it!  It’s not surprising that your mom would want to go to the vendor meetings either (she’s paying them, afterall!)

    If she’s making a decision you don’t agree with or would rather not do – that’s the time to talk to her about it.  If you want to do something on your own – just do it on your own and don’t tell her about it 😉  

    But, I wouldn’t tell her to back off – unless she’s forcing some vision or plan on you or without your consent.
