My mum is doing my head in about guests. She has told me "you WILL invite her" when talking about my brothers girlfriend I don't like. And when ever I mention its 100 guests she keeps making comments about it being a lot and saying that my h2b shouldnt invite cousins, but its not his fault he has a big family and I dont. How do I get her to keep her opinions to herself and realise its not her wedding
Just be honest. It’s your wedding and you aren’t getting married for anyone else. You should tell her you have final say on guests.
Just politely remind her the day is about you and your other half so it is the two of you who will have the final say in everything. Tell her you will listen to any ideas or suggestions she has but the final decision is yours.
I agree with the comments above, however if she is putting any money towards it, be careful as she might use that as an argument to get the people she wants. Good luck x
