Rehearsal Dinner Advice
I am the mother of the groom and typically the groom's parents host the rehearsal dinner which I am looking forward to. However, the mother of the bride is driving me nuts. . she is buying all kinds of stuff. . . decorations, plates, etc. I have a theme in mind and that is a luau (since the theme of the wedding is tropical). I enjoy planning and decorating but she is taking over! I want to start out having a good relationship with the family but I want to discuss this with her. Someone suggested talking to the "bride" and tell her how I feel and let her tell her mother. Or do I talk to the mother myself?
