It may be the bride's day, but being a mom comes with big-day responsibilities!

The wedding adventure isn't just a big deal for the bride and the groom; it's a big deal for their parents too! Especially for their mothers, who are eager to be there for every single step, whether it's picking out the perfect dress, taste-testing the items that may find their way on the menu, or even choosing the songs the DJ is going to play to get people on the dance floor.

It's easy for the mothers of the bride and the groom to get carried away with every detail, since ultimately, they are proud and excited to shower their children in perfection for the most special day of their lives.

Sometimes the moms get a little too excited and begin micromanaging the vendors, making decisions without the couple, or even referring to the big day as "our wedding."

So moms, listen up! Even if your wedding excitement is enough to practically have you take out a billboard and announce it in the heart of Times Square, remember that there's a time and place to voice your opinion and — above anything else — it's important to remember who this big day is truly about.

It may be a challenge to swallow your "ifs," "ands," or "butts," but it's important to buckle down and take note of these 50 tips so that you can avoid being introduced as the "Momzilla" of the bride or the groom at the bridal shower or the wedding day.
