    We are in UK and getting wed in Italy April 2017, so my HOB mother is controlling and interfering and everytime we going to see such ad Venus or anything for wedding she is coming and not allowing us to go anytime our own. I feel very sad on this as can't do freely what I want to do on wedding day and not saying her anything coz of she feel bad and I don't want to disturb anyone . She want me to stay in her mother's house one day before wedding so that its near by cermony hall but i took good house for family for two weeks and want to stay their and saw this house feel relaxed rather then her mother's house . Her mother house is empty and she died last year which making me scared to stay too.Don't know how I face this all till wedding done. I have crazy for things to be done what to be done and want to control this for me as to take slow and in peace.Did anyone face this .Hope to hear from you all.Thanks

    Just explain to her that you would feel more comfortable surrounded by all your own things the day before your wedding and you think you will sleep better and be more rested if you stay where you want to rather than her mothers house but that you do appreciate the offer.

    Hi Asha, next time you are with her take her out somewhere just the two of you and explain that as much as you really appreciate the effort she is going to you would like her to take a small step back. The day really is for you and your OH and there are ways to incorporate family but the way you want to instead. I'm sure she won't be offended she could just be really excited and want to help as much as possible but doesn't understand at the minute it's not helping :) xx
