Everyone thinks my mom planned my whole wedding

I hate to vent about this, but it's been really getting to me! For some reason, everyone in my DH's family seems to think that my mom planned our wedding. Don't get me wrong, my mom did A LOT to help us out...but she did not "plan" it. I personally planned our wedding...for a year I might add! My FIL made some comment at our rehearsal dinner in his toast saying what a great job my mom had done planning everything, and now when people in their family comment on our wedding to me it's always something like, "Wow, your mom really outdid herself!" I think I would look mean for correcting them, but I put so much time and hard work into our wedding that it really irritates me.


Phew...I feel better now for just getting that out!

Thanks wildfire! Apparently my FIL apologized to my DH...but I never knew that...and apparently he didn't bother to fix it with his family. I might just have to start saying things subtly!

Awwww, I'm sorry.  Like Niecy said, I hope your Mom gives credit where it's due.

Oh my mom always corrects people! :) My mom doesn't live here, so people in FI's family keep coming up to me and making the comment though, and I feel like if I correct them I will come off wrong. My mom did help a ton actually getting stuff done too, so I don't want them to think I'm ungrateful either! It's just very awkward!!!
