Dr. Phil please help!! Although my have known about our intentions since Thanksgiving we just got officially engaged yesterday. I'm 45 and he is 44. We're getting married in Jamaica, for which my parents offered to pay. But now my mother is insisting on being present when we have our food and cake tasting, has decided where our reception will be and that I will wear a dress. These are all concerns however, probably the biggest is the venue. We live about 1hour south of my hometown and where she wants the venue ( my parents still live there) and around 1 1/2 hours north of his family including his 91 year old grandmother. So we live in the middle of both. My fiancee and I want to have it in the town we live so we can plan and execute things not to mention that we have several hotels for guests. My mother has stated that her and my father are paying for it they get to pick where, what food ect. I have explained that we will just pay for everything ourselves to rectify her ownership of our day but we knows we really can't afford it at this time. But we really aren't concerned with having a large, fancy reception as she seems be. I've been waiting for this day since I was a little girl and now, because of her, don't want to have anything at all. Please help!
