    Not guilty, my mom is being very generous and paying for the wedding, but she had no stipulations and let us plan it exactly how we wanted to.

    My parents and I have not argued about the wedding at all. My FH did get into an argument with his sister about the wedding date, because it's during the school year and she was being incredibly rude about it.

    Guilty. Just with my mom, but I also wouldn't exactly classify it as arguing. She is way more traditional than I am, she wanted me to have a shower. I have my own house and we live together so I don't think I need one. She wants me to wear a veil. I don't want one. All of these turned into her saying "It's your wedding, do what you want" and crying over it and me conceding to keep the peace.

    Not really argue. But I have disagreed on EVERYTHING my MIL suggests. Her taste is sooooo old school and ugly IMO Smiley sad
    One example: “Buy your cakes at Safeway. That’s what I did.” Um, no thanks. I’m not buying store bought cake at my once in a lifetime wedding!!

    My mother in law doesn't really speak to me... which is a whole other issue. I'm pretty sure she's in denial that her son is going to get married. No problems with my parents though.

    Innocent! My parents are not involved in my life and my FILs have been nothing but amazing and supportive.

    Guilty, maybe. My mom has gotten overbearing a time or two and I've told her about it. She doesn't respond well to criticism though. She basically just shuts down and feels sorry for herself. It's not productive.

    Not at all! They've all been super supportive of all the decisions we've been making. It's truly been a wonderful experience thus far.

    Unfortunately I have no parents in law to argue with but I’ve definitely gotten into an argument or 2 or 3 with my mom.

    Never with my parents. They have been amazing. My FIL's are a different story! I have had a few things to say about how they think this is their wedding...

    Innocent! My FH’s parents are both deceased and my mom has really just supported whatever I want so far.

    Innocent. Wedding planning has been pretty stress free so far. I have argued with FH though. Me and mom have had discussions but never argue

    Guilty. My mom and I have come to the point where we dont talk about it. Since my fiance and I are paying for everything, I am treating her as a guest. This way we dont argue and it's been working.

    Innocent. Both families are super laid back. At least now anyway. Let's hope it stays like that.

    Innocent. FH and I are financing this pretty much on our own. I doubt anyone will have much to say. It’s still early... very early into things especially considering it’s an extremely long engagement. I’m hoping the only two who will be getting into disagreements are the two footing the billl

    Guilty, at least with my mom... not with my future in laws though!
