Is there a way to talk to your dad without your mom there… in person?  He seems to be the one offering his help without strings.  Also, you need to stand up to your mom. Let her know that you truly are grateful for her help and appreciate nay imput she has but it is your wedding and you want it a certain way and want to remain within a certain budget.  She has to understand that.  

If your dad can’t come to your rescue and your mom won’t let up, you may just have to refuse their financial help and go on planning on your own.  I know what a relief it is to get some financial help but if it is at the cost of your sanity and happiness, you should just forget it.  Good luck.

OK, stop and take a deep breath. If you can’t afford to have the wedding your mom wants, stop listening to her immediately. It will NOT get better or easier.

Second, have you consider a DW? I wish I did, because even though I can afford the wedding that I am currently planning, a lot of sneaky expenses do creep up and adds up very quickly. I wish I did a Destination Wedding, because then I will be surrounded with just the people who loves us enough to travel to our wedding and the bill will be lower (most likely).
