If my daughter was in tears, I would definately speak out against the BULLY who did that.
NO ONE other then the bride and groom need make any decisions regarding a wedding. If the parents are paying then a budget would be established and stuck to, , but money should not give the parents or parent in laws any rights to dictate the type of serivice or any other wedding / recpetion details. I firmly believe it is the wedding couples day.
Mary Margaret I would not let anyone bully my daughter into tears. You tried being civil, but sometimes bullies just don't get it.
