Am I being a Bridezilla? I don't want a Redneck wedding!

FMIL knew that we were in the process of changing the BM dresses and that we may change the wedding colors. We ended up changing our wedding colors from a royal/light blue/ivory to teal/light blue/ivory. Instead of waiting, FMIL orders us sewing kits for the OOT bags white with navy blue writing. Okay - no biggie since they are going in the OOT bags anyway. Then she orders navy blue matches for our cigar table. UGH.....she should have waited two days - what's the rush!!??
Then, my step mom - who is an Oriental Trading Junkie - orders us some sort of jewlery bag for our rings and bride and groom visors. Well, my FMIL already found us a light blue mini sombrero for our rings - which is something I asked her to look for when she went to Mexico. (I was going to tie our rings on the sombrero with a teal ribbon). So when step mom tells me about the jewlery bags - I'm like uh...ok..but I'm thinking to myself - what am I going to do with them?
On Sunday we went to Target and found cute white baseball caps with "Bride" in rhinestones. (Yep - in the dollar bin!) When we get home FI says "I will never wear that crap". (He's too manly) So when stepmom tells me about the visors I'm thinking..oh great, she is going to pull it out and Shawn is going to laugh in her face. Then to top it off, she says, "The bride visor is kind of plain so I was going to decorate it with some flowers".
FLOWERS!! WTF Her style is SO 1980's! I know stepmom is trying to help, but she keeps buying stuff we've already bought. She also told me she wanted to order some candles and mirrors for the tables. I told her to hold off until I hear from the WC. (I had to stop her frenzy somehow)
I feel like if I don't pull them in some way, my wedding is going to end up looking like an episode of "My big Redneck Wedding" - only in Mexico! I absolutely appreciate the thought behind it, but now they are running amuck!
How do I get them under control and say it without seeming like a Bridezilla?

I agree, you should let them know that you think everyone should consult you before purchasing anything else for your wedding. Not because you don’t appreciate their help, but because you don't know what is provided by the resort yet, what other people have already bought, and you don't want them to waist their money on stuff you might not be able to use. We really want to pick out our own accessories so we just let everyone know from the beginning not to buy us any wedding stuff. We really want to pick our own cake topper, guest book, wedding album, etc. so everything matches and flows well. I think everyone understands that. It's your wedding and that doesn't make you a bridezilla, haha.
