Let who ever pays for it determine what to have. If they ask your input tell them what you both would like.

You should have a say in that your Fiance should let both mothers know what your preference is.  However, they get the final say since they are making/paying for it.

Well, technically they should equally decide together- but in reality I am sure mom will decide for both of them. She will likely decie that she has that right as biological mother- for right or wrong.

You should have somewhat of a say.

Here’s my logic: If the parents pay for the food at the reception, don’t the Bride and Groom still choose what the food is? I would like to think so. So why not the same logic for the groom’s family paying for the RD? Anyways, since FSMIL and Future Mother-In-Law havr alrady gotten into it regarding this, I think it might help if your Fiance steps in and says “______ sounds good to us and we think will be the best option for our guests and for the price.” Or whatever.

@AmeliaBedelia: I agree and basically sais that their preferences should be stated, but at the end of the day I don’t think its worth the stress or arguement over what is being served if mom (or so it seems) is so adament to have it her way.

I suspect she sees this as her event and wants to put her mark on it. Especially since the wedding itself is the brides and brides family’s event since they usually plan that.
