I had a few here or there and I finally realized that I needed to keep my mouth shut around her. I gave her the bigger details. “Picked flowers today” (didn’t say what or how much), “Found a photgrapher and she’s great!” (that was it). All the judging stopped and so did my hurt feelings.

How frustrating!  I’m sorry she’s not being completely supportive. 

My mom and I argued over invitations.  We’re making our own and had decided on paper and she freaked out that it wasn’t the exact same shade of purple as the bridesmaids’ dresses.  I told her every shade wasn’t going to match up.

Basically, if you guys are paying for the wedding, just say “Thanks for your opinion” and do what you want (does that sound harsh?).  It’s your money, your wedding, and  your decisions!
