My mother has been all sorts of crazy during wedding planning
– we were in the shop after just purchasing my dress. My mum was watching another bride during her final fitting and the bride was concerned the dress was too loose around her waist. The owner of the shop kept saying ‘you look great’. When the lady went out the back my mum went up to the bride and told her the dress was too loose and that the owner was lying to her. The owner came out and had heard the whole convo. Sooo awkward!!
– looking at bridal jewelry, and the salesperson asks to see my dress. I show her a photo and she says ‘oh these drop pearls would look amazing’ and my mother says ‘ oh, they would actually cheapen the whole look’
Honestly, I’ve never seen this side of her. I’m seriously concerned about taking her out in public with me!
Share your moments (doesn’t have to be wedding related) please!

@laurab6320: When FI proposed to me, my mom stated that I shouldnt be allowed to have a second marriage because I owed penance for my first marriage. My ex husband abused me really bad and terrorized our children. My mother says that I should spend the rest of my life making up to my children for what we all went through. Forget that I tried to get away from him and almost lost my life in the process.

@TexasSpringBride: Wow that is a whole different level of terrible that extends far beyond awkward! Good for you for getting yourself and kids safe. Do not let anyone tell you that you don’t deserve all the happiness in the world because you have suffered abuse in the past!
I don’t hav any awkward mom moments since my mom passed away years ago, but my dad will more than make up for it I assure you! I was so freaked out by what his speech might sound like that I have assigned my big bro the task of giving an writing the speech with him.
