      I am a little confused about what you wrote but I think the jest of it was that

      her family is

      hassling her about her plans for the wedding and reception. I have (& still do

      deal with a

      difficult family -mine is the in-laws though) dealt with something similar.

      First and for most

      keep in mind that you want to CELEBRATE your marriage. To me that means having

      those

      around that want to celebrate with me and have a great time. A girl wanting her

      family is

      natural just lay down the expectations about what you want for that day. Tell

      the family you

      are thrilled with the wedding and you hope that they are also, if they are not

      than please

      don’t come. You don’t want this ruined for you as a couple or your child who

      get to see mom

      and dad getting married. Maybe mom just wants to feel included and does not. So

      include

      her in on something. Ask her opion (not that you have to do what she suggest,

      after all it is

      your wedding).

      A girl only has one wedding, BUT a mother has only the weddings of her daughter!

      Maybe

      she wants something she did not get at her wedding. Try to let mom be part of

      it, if you try

      and it does not work so be it. Maybe if mom is demanding to know where the

      reception is

      tell her your ideas and then ask if she had any ideas. Maybe mom is worried

      about the

      reception place getting booked up. (Being a wedding photographer they do fill up

      fast and

      you can not wait till the last minute to get a good spot). Good luck and

      remeber it is the day

      for the bride and groom (but others are involved also).
