I need wedding invitation advice
Here's the situation.
Brandon and I found nice wedding invitations that we would really like to have. We told my mother this and she was fine with it. Until...
She had this "great" idea! She wants to use a photo of Brandon and I (I hate pictures of myself, btw) as a black and white watermark-type-background with text laid over the top. She plans on making them herself, with an inkjet printer.
I'm in a horribly tight spot. I absolutely LOVE my mother, and I appreciate that she and my dad are spotting the bill for the wedding, but I really really really do not like her idea.
Now, before anyone says to tell her the truth....
My mother is also horribly sensitive, as am I. To tell her the truth would hurt her soooo badly, which in turn would make me feel like the world's biggest cad. It's bad enough I had to convince her that Brandon and I wanted our wedding down here where we live (rather than Gary, IN), but I also had to convince her about the photograher (whom we LOVE) that we chose.
To add this to the list of things that "we want" and "she doesn't" would really make things worse.
I really don't know how to tell her in a nice enough way to find a good compromise, because frankly, Brandon is just as opinionated on this as I am (and my mother cannot seem to except this...).
