My boyfriend (now FI) proposed to me 10 days ago, and already his mother is trying to control our wedding. She's already been calling him, pestering him about getting married in his hometown and in a Presbyterian church.
Here's the deal: we're both atheists. Neither of us would be caught dead getting married in a church. It would be like having Mormons getting married in a Satanist church, it's just not going to happen.
We're also getting married in the town we live in. We love Burlington and really want to be married in the city. They live 20 minutes away and she's already btching about having to drive out for the wedding. I'm having half my family coming in from France! She has absolutely no reason to complain,
I'm preparing myself for her meddling in everything and trying to control this entire wedding. I'm not going to let her, but it's going to suck.
