🙁 I’m sorry you have to deal with that…wedding planning is stressful enough so to add that on top of it? I don’t think there is any easy way out that. Hang in there…and hopefully everything will work itself out ::hugs::

I’m sorry you’re going through this. How have you dealt with her when she’s acted like this in the past?

@HourThyme:  If you have any interest, Nora Roberts wrote this AWESOME series called The Bride Quartet. In the first book, the main character’s mother sounds seriously IDENTICAL to yours! The bride-to-be is going through the same thing, on how to deal with this woman, her mother.

I’m glad that everyone already knows how she is and can just roll ther eyes and ignore her. At least everyone has your back 🙂

I work with someone like this, and what I’ve learned is: keep your expectations L-O-W.

Don’t expect anything good from her.

Do expect her to continue with her whacky behavior.

Depend on her for nothing.

The less you expect from her, the less you’ll be setting yourself up to be disappointed.

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this.

@HourThyme:  I’m thinking we were seperated at birth.


Though contributing no money, there are a few people my mother is not too happy we are inviting:


1. My stepmother and half siblings: my mother and father divorced when I was an infant. He remarried when I was 11, and is now deceased. She’s had 4 marriages since. Get over it, lady.


2. My grandparents on my fathers side: (see above).


3. Her own siblings: just because they dont like you doesnt mean they dont like me.


In addition, she is pissed I wont let her walk me down the aisle.


I typically give in to her as well, or just ignore her. I find myself saying “i’m sorry you are unhappy with that decision” a lot.
