Mom of the bride or groom can be either a huge help or a huge hindrance. Make sure that yours doesn’t become the bridezilla behind the bride. It can get tricky to speak up when someone else is footing the bill, but this is your wedding, not hers. If it becomes a big deal, you might want to think about paying for the wedding yourself. Stick to that budget that you outlined for yourself, and get the best you can. If your mom seems to be getting a little too involved, give her projects. Come up with a DIY favor or center piece and give her the green light.
