This or That: His Mom's a Diva or a Control Freak?

This or That: His Mom's a Diva or a Control Freak?

You knew your fiancé’s mom had issues, but since you’ve started wedding planning, you’ve really been able to see her true colors. Now you’re in direct contact with her multiple times a week without your fiancé as a buffer. Would it be worse if . . .

This: She somehow manages to make every aspect of planning about her? You’ve spent more time helping her find a dress than focusing on your own wedding gown! When you call her out on it, she only gets more outlandish.

Or . . .

That: She’s completely taken over all of the planning? You feel like you don't have a say in your own wedding and when you try to make a suggestion, she tells you that she's already taken care of it.

i would hate it if she took control. and i can ignore the fact that shes only thinking about her dress but i cant stand it if she took over. THAT would obviously be worse

These are both horrible but I think THAT would be worse and if this happens to me I would totally tell her to back the F off. I'm all for the parents offering suggestions but excuse me it's my wedding not yours. If your so gung ho on planning one go renew your vows. :D

Ooooh...tough one! I'd say diva though, because in her head it would be all about her. But if she were a control freak, she would be interfering too much into my life and my guy's life.

Both would be horrible to me. Luckily my boyfriends mom would never do either of those!

I chose "this" because I would absolutely hate for someone to plan something important in my wedding without asking me. Both suck though. I have to ask my fiance to intervene.

Omfg. She's marrying HER, not him.My mother-in-law knows when to back off, thank goodness. She is very respectful of my marriage. (Drives me a little nuts over'mothering' my daughter.. but that's something different.) She calls once a day, same time to talk to her son. If it's crazy at my house w/our toddler she usually lets him call her later. She sends me a few texts once a week to check on me. Compared to most mom-in-laws (and my exhusband's mother) my Mom-In-Law is The Best.

I think I'd be more angry if she took it upon herself to plan MY wedding... I almost had a mother-in-law like that... luckily I got rid of both her and her son...haha...

i would rather she be super selfish than plan everything without me cuz if she was selfish, i'd just not help her and just let her act annoying but not get involved in it. but if she's making plans, i'd go nuts.

THAT - she plans stuff - that way at least the planning gets done! However, she'd have to fight my mom off, and I don't envy her that. My best friend's mom was a THIS - borderline personality, every little decision was about how we were leaving her out of the wedding or something ludicrous, until she finally pitched a fit and ran away from her home a week before the wedding. Yes, this is a grown woman.

I would tell my bf to tell his mom to back off...or I will (and probably not nicely). Never been one to take crap like that and honestly my bf would never let anyone let alone his mom treat me this way! PS If I were to get married I'd probably elope with to some tropical island with a few close friends and family...rather than a whole big thing at home...
