Meet Caleb and Ashley, a young couple who recently got engaged and are planning a grand wedding. Caleb's mom offered to pay for their $150,000 wedding, but she had two conditions: they must use a wedding planner and she gets to invite eight specific relatives. While the couple agreed to the wedding planner, Ashley wasn't thrilled about the additional guests. Now, Caleb's mom is considering pulling her financial support, causing a rift between the families. Let's dive into the story and see how it unfolds. 😬💍

After a heart-to-heart, Caleb and Ashley sat down with Caleb's mom to discuss the issue.
