her feeling insulted and hurt is not being controlling.

unless she is actually DOING something or bullying you into making the decisions she wants, you don’t seem to have a problem.

My mom used things like you said to guilt me into everything. I say stick to your guns and pay for your day… I wish I would have. Good Luck!

We had concerns about the same thing – we have had to be firm to incorporate our very offbeat and very geeky ideas into our day.  My mother responded to firmness and reminders that it is OUR celebration (and her contribution should be an unconditional gift), but you know your mom best.  We have run into issues with my parents upping the budget only on items that are important to them.
