I don’t think you’re being unreasonable at all.  Could you just talk to her over the phone about the seating chart and go through her friends/family with her that way?

I think it’s reasonable if she lives in the area. If it’s anhour or more drive each way, I could see it being an issue.

Is there a way to scan the chart to her or to type it out?

I don’t think you’re being unreasonable. She sounds like my mom, yelling and yelling over an issue she’s created in her head. I guess the best course of action would be to confirm the seating chart over the phone or go ahead and assume you got it right. Does your mother live far from you?

Skype it one night?  That way you can show her and she doesn’t have to drive.  Everybody wins.

She is being unreasonable. She is only unavailable one day in the evening when you are home from work. She could do Tues , Wed or Friday evening.

You also offered to work from home one day so that also made Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during the day available.

For Gosh sakes, your wedding is less than a month away. When does she think these things will get done?

One would think that a 40 min drive to meet with your daughter prior to her wedding might get put on the “To DO” list!

Maybe your mom is stressed out too? My mom and I were at each other’s throats during the wedding planning, and I didn’t even ask her for help. I’d say go there after work, go out for a nice supper or make something together and discuss it that way, especially if you want her input. You may have to make a sacrifice and go to her, which sucks since you do work and she’s off. If you don’t really care at this point and just want it done, then go with your seating chart, but pick your battles and find out if it is worth having you and your mom mad at each other.

I don’t think you’re being unreasonable at all! I guess you could maybe take a pic of it and send to her if you don’t want to type it up.

My mom and dad have been kind of weird. I think my dad is sick of hearing about the wedding in general. I also like the advice to just go to your mom if she is being a PITA. I have had to drag my mom places. It’s like one minute she is helpful and then next she is disagreeable…good luck with her!
