Welcome to weddings. You are on really shitty ground. being stuck between two woman really sucks. best thing I could tell anyone is pay for your own wedding and make sure the bills come in under 50 a person. that way the envelopes will pay for the wedding with a little extra for the honey moon. Since your taking her money you are stuck with her in this process.
She has been in the process absolutely so I dont know why she doesnt feel included. We are paying 1/3rd also. her parents who are the last 3rd are there if we need them or ask.
Off the top of my head here is what my mom has been in on, not having bought this just involved in the process.
the wedding dress
first dance songs
reception hall choices
cocktail reception planning/hall choices
jewerly for amber,
gifts, registry, bridal party gifts,
We gave her the whole rehersal dinner to plan
wedding night reservations,
night before the wedding reservations for the bridal party
THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. SHE DID A LOT MORE, but you get the idea
