HELP!!!! Controlling MOB
I am standing in and helping to plan a wedding for two very dear friends of mine. However, the MOB is a tad on the controlling side, and it is seriously starting to affect my Bride and Groom. Recently, my Bride purchased her Wedding Dress, and during the shopping trip, the MOB reveals that she wants to wear off white/silver/champagne. She has never mentioned this to the bride, she just says that it will match the colour scheme (Red/Black - Bride is wearing Ivory) and that this is what she wants. Sadly, MOB keeps adding/planning/implimenting and buying things to/for this wedding without consulting the bride or groom, is quite insensitive to the fact that the groom wants a say and to be involved, and my bride cowers when it comes to dealing with her mom, as well as constantly asking for approval when wanting to share/implimenting her own ideas into their wedding. I should also mention, that it has been stated this wedding must be a positve reflection on their success and the success of raising their children. So my QUESTION(S) -- Should the MOB be wearing something so close in colour to the bride and can you give me suggestions to help enourage my B&G to take back control of their wedding?
