All I can say is wow… I really feel for you 🙁 It sounds like you have an amazing guy after all that drama and it sucks that your mom isn’t that supportive. It’s unfortunate how cynical family can be when you just need them to be happy for you. Have you sat down with her and talked about how you’ve been feeling with all of this? If you really want her at your wedding in Florida, have you considered paying for her ticket to go out there so she has no excuse not to attend?

I’m also curious as to how far along is your little sister is? Will she be due around your wedding date, sooner, or later? I can understand if your mom wants to support her the same way she supported you or support her better if she didn’t support you as much since teen pregnancy is scary and rough. She sounds like she’s more excited about having a new grandchild than getting a new son-in-law that she obviously thinks won’t work out. I would really just sit her down and say that you would really appreciate her involvement since you know this will be the only wedding you’ll have and it’ll never happen again. If she doesn’t get involved now, she won’t have another chance. You can be happy and involved with your sister’s pregnancy but you still want the family, possibly including your sister, playing a major roll in your wedding. Ultimately, it’s all about making the family happier and bigger. I’d just suggest emphasizing how much it’d mean to you, how happy it’d make you, and play up the family growing and becoming happier when trying to get her involved.

Give updates if/when you do speak to her about your wedding plans 🙂
