My wedding is coming up this summer but I'm not involving my mother-in-law in anything. It's because it's my wedding and I don't see why I should involve her. It's MY day and I just want everything to be my way.
This past weekend I was at my fiance's friends birthday dinner at his house and his fiance is planning their wedding too and she talked about how she let her mother-in-law be in charge of the table decor and the wedding invitations. I said I'm not involving my mother in law in anything and she asked why and I told her why. She said that out of respect she decided to let her mother-in-law be a part of her big day and she's happy she did because she's being helpful and made the invitations look so pretty. But I don't really care I can do everything myself and I'll make everything look good too why do I need to involve my mother-in-law? It's my wedding not hers!
My friends agree with me, but my fiance's friend's fiance and her friends didn't agree with me. other girls at the dinner party who got married before said they also involved their family members and their husband's family members. I think that's fine for them but in my opinion it's my wedding and my big day.

Let her do something. Even if I knew that I was capable of handling a whole wedding, it is nice for family members and/or close friends to participate in it, it makes them feel good and it is a time to bond. Just out of curiosity, are you paying for your entire wedding?1
