I am getting married in September 2015 and have run into a lot of problems trying to plan a wedding with my mom. So far, my fiancé and I have compromised on everything. We have agreed to have the ceremony and reception at the only venue that my mom approved of, even though it wasn't what we wanted. This is also the same ceremony site and reception venue that my sister had two years ago. My fiancé and I have suggested to my parents that we are happy to pay for the whole wedding ourselves so that we could plan what we want, but my parents refuse. They are insulted that we would even offer. My mom told me it is the bride's parents party. So far, I have caved to everything my mom wants and every detail is a battle with her. If I suggest anything that differs from what my sister did two years ago, or something that my mom doesn't like, she becomes hysterical and calls me selfish. I told her weddings are about compromise on all sides, but I have yet to see any compromise from her. I feel so stuck and I'm ready to elope even though I know that it would hurt my family. What should I do?
