My mother does not agree with me about any ideas I have for my reception decorations. The place I chose to do it is very elegant, the only decoration I really need is my centerpieces. Needless to say, Mom wants to do it.. and she wants to SURPRISE ME WITH IT!!! She wants to decorate it the day before and have me not know what she is doing. Am I selfish to not want her to do it? If I walk in and don’t like the way it looks, I know I’ll walk right out and leave. I’m trying not to act like a spoiled brat, but you have to understand…her first idea was a pinata.. HELP!

haha! Oh no! That would not work with me either! Tell her that you would like to be involved & it’s not that you don’t trust her….but it is an important part of all the rest of the decisions for the wedding.

I have very different tastes from my mother so I can certainly understand. I would not be ok with this myself. But I am not the type to be surprised about things like that.

her first idea was a pinata …. this doesn’t really help her case. i probably wouldn’t be comfortable with this either.

Oh heck no. No way would I be down with “suprise” decorations. No no no.

nope, i wouldn’t be okay with this… and I actually had a pinata at my wedding!!! even though my mom has really good taste, I’d be worried about someone going crazy with tulle, hearts and other cheezy wedding decor.

I wouldn’t do it, I would tell her that it is important that she be part of your day, but just being there for you and you would hate for her to spend so much time and effort on the decorations when its already been taken care of, it is a needless task, maybe she could work on sometime else? (favors?? just a thought)….Good Luck…I know each person has their own vision and taste, and sometimes its okay to be a bridezilla and tell your mom NO….again Good Luck!
