I got engaged in November, and I’ve started planning my wedding. But everything I want to do is basically the complete opposite of what my mother wants.
She’s argued with me about he venue, the flowers,and my dress. I am having a Bohemian theme and she wants it to be more traditional. But here’s the thing…neither of my parents are putting down any money for the wedding. My fiancé and I are paying for the entire wedding ourselves.
She’s my mother and I love her, but since she’s not forking out the money…should she have a say in what I do?

First of all…congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
Do I think your mother should have a say in your wedding when she’s not paying for it. Well, technically I guess I would say “no” but if she has good suggestions you may want to consider what she’s saying.
Even though she’s not paying for your wedding I’m sure she loves you dearly and still has your best interests at heart.
