    Is she paying? If so, you might be stuck. If not, then ignore her or change the subject.

    What are you guys butting heads about?  I'm a MOB and back in our day it was UNHEARD OF to do anything but a cookie cutter traditional wedding unless you were some "wierd hippy."  BTW - my brother had a very cool wierd hippy wedding, but is wasn't the norm at all.

    Give us some details and maybe we can help you.  Sometimes a google search of a newer wedding tradition can do wonders to open eyes.  Details please.

    Also, who is paying for the wedding?  Sometimes parents offer to pay but have strings attached to that money that requires things be done their way.  Sometimes there are no strings.

    If she is not paying, don't share your plans with her.
