I need help, from going INSANE!!

So my fiance of 2 years and i are finally going to tie the knot. Because he is going into the army and he wants to get the wedding done before he goes into training. So we were offered a free wedding, the pastor, church free. My grandparents paid for the dress, shoes for the bridal party, and the slacks and shirt for the groom party. My Aunt is making the wedding cake, grooms cake, toast glass, and the flowers!! But i have ONE major issue, my MOM!!! She was been working every time we go shopping for the wedding so i send her pics by phone to keep her in the loop and to get her feed back. I originally wanted white brown n blue and mom didnt like so it became olive green n rose red. What my grandmother n I liked my mom hated. I have became avery irratiable person to be around, and now with the wedding 1 week away my mom wants to change the colors n the whole intire place setting.Not to mention we decide to get marryed 2weeks ago!!
What cani do moms, befor i go BRIDEZILLA

  • your mom should realize it is your wedding and not hers. she should give her advice but the decision is ultimately yours.

  • Sounds like she feels left out, and wants to have some say in things. BUT enough is enough....I would do things your way as calmly and diplomatically as possible. At this point, changes are very costly and cannot be done. So, don't change things.

  • I agree with all the ladies, it's your special day not anyone else's.

  • You aren't the bridzilla here! Your mom is trying to take over...don't let her. My mom does the same stuff. If you do what your mom tells you, and it isn't what you want, you aren't going to be happy. Your mom is just going to have to deal with it.

  • Like the others say this IS YOUR day, no-one else's. If yr mom is like my mom, tell her asap that you'll listen to her input but YOU will make the decision! Hope YOUR day goes wonderfully.
