@September Bee: Is your ma helping pay for these things? Either way, sometimes weddings just bring out the selfish feelings in folks. 

I think she’s just being selfish/upset that she can’t join in on this aspect. I’d politely but firmly tell her that she’s more than welcome to join you, but you intend to involve everyone in the selection process. It is your wedding, you’d appreciate it if she does not try to place ‘dibs’ on what she feels should be ‘mom-only’ events because it makes you uncomfortable and you really want to enjoy the whole experience with a lot of people that you love, including Future Mother-In-Law and others.

@indibee: Exactly what she said. Your mother is being unreasonable, you need to speak up.

I think your Mother may need reminding that yes you are her daughter but the day is not all about you its about your Fiance too so his parents should be as equally involved as her, Ask your mother what right do you have to tell them no when your marrying there son? hopefully then she will come to terms with it

She has now insisted that everything left to be done, catering aside, will be up to her.

Who is getting married that day? I can understand some input if she’s paying, but otherwise tell her to back off.


I’m going through the same thing with my Momzilla – who knew what’s been lurking in there all these years?!? lol
