You don't have to divorce your mom just to marry your love!
Often the Mother of the Bride (and sometimes the groom!) is the most emotional person in the room. Managing her needs not just the day of, but all the way through the planning process is something wedding planners have a ton of experience doing.
How do I manage my 'MOB's at my weddings... Well, here you go. Here's some advice that will help you through it... and let you AND your mother stay sane!
My first bit of advice is simple. COMMUNICATE. Your mom truly wants you to have a fabulous day! She's worried you'll make mistakes, have stress on your big day, and wish you had made different decisions. She IS concerned about your happiness and well being. She is just trying to help you get the most out of the experience in the best way she knows how.

Second piece is tougher - COMPROMISE. She'll have one or two things that she thinks her friends will miss if they aren't there. If they aren't on your (or your fiancee's) "NO" list? Maybe those are the places she gets to have her way.
Delegate! That's the next big piece. Find some things that she's interested in that don't mean much to you... could be as big as flowers or as small as placecards... and give it over to her! Let your inner control freak go!

DO NOT let any one part of the wedding come between you and your mother. No matter what, she's still your mom! Work through the issues with communication, delegation, and compromise... and make sure you hire a professional to help you navigate so you don't make mistakes!
