A woman has revealed how her mother-in-law won’t let her plan her own wedding, and she even intends to match her dress to her son’s suit.
Justina, 27, appears alongside fiance Jason, 29, on the TLC program I Love A Mama’s Boy airing in the US.
The pair have been together for five years after starting out as roommates, before eventually growing closer, The Sun reports.
The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Taylor, together – and after realising she was “the one” Jason popped the question.
“I feel like every single quality that I have looked at for a man, Jason checks all of my boxes. I just love him so much,” Justina said.
“There is just one problem that always interferes when we try and make big life decisions and that’s Jason’s mum.
“Jason is definitely a mamma’s boy,” she said, “When I first met him he was trying to warn me.”
Justina soon discovered her fiance and his 51-year-old mother Annette were closer than she had anticipated.
“As time went on I realised, yeah, ‘You’re attached to your mum’s hip’. They even go on dates together,” Justina explained on the program.
“He would go on a date with me and then on a date with his mum.”
With the couple’s wedding around the corner, Justina was shocked to learn just how much control her mother-in-law wanted to have.
While Justina is hoping for a rustic, country wedding, Annette has been insistent that the pair get married in Vegas.
Against Justina’s wishes, Annette had joined them for suit shopping where she begged her son to buy a velvet red, paisley suit.
“It won’t go with anything else we have at the wedding – the bridesmaids are wearing beige,” Justina said.
To her shock, her mother-in-law’s persistence continued.
“Well I will just get a dress to match Jason,” she says on the program.
And an unphased Jason is quick to take his mother’s side.
But Justina is not the only bride-to-be to have mother-in-law drama on her wedding day (and won’t be the last).
One woman slammed her fiance’s mum for buying a white dress with a train to wear on her big day.
Although the dress featured a floral design on the white fabric, the flowing bridal-style train bore a striking resemblance to a wedding gown – causing the bride lash out.
“Please tell me it’s as bad as I think it is and I’m not overreacting for it being too white,” she wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.
“We gave her around five colours to pick from in our theme and tried to make it fun for her because she’s been so unexcited about the whole wedding.”
But despite taking her for a day of shopping, the bride said she received a text from her future mother-in-law telling her she’d bought a dress on her own.
After refusing to show her the design, the groom’s little sister sneakily snapped a photo of herself in the dress, revealing the bride’s worst fears.
The mother-in-law said she didn’t want to be the same colour as the bridesmaids and any light pink, blush, peach colours like that “wash me out”.
“I feel like I’m an embarrassment to everyone and have to have my dress picked out like I’m a child. It hurts,” the mum wrote.
