Not a snarky comment, but a serious inquiry: Is she going through menopause?

For you mom to expect a certain monetary benchmark for your gifts is really bizarre.  I have never heard of $1,000 being THE ONLY graduation gift allowed haha.

OMG my wedding has sent mine into PSYCHO-OVERLOAD too …. I’ve hinted if she doesn’t cut the crap I’m getting a fill in mom for the day  :/

I wish you lots of luck with her and hopefully it helps to know others feel your pain.

Wow! She’s stepping way out of bounds (that’s putting it lightly)! I think you’re doing the right thing by limiting her involvement. She obviously can’t handle acting like a reasonable human right now.

My mom is awesome and I am super close to her, but even she had a few moments. For instance, when we were having brunch with now-DH’s parents during the planning, I told her that the muslin mock-up of my dress that my friend had sent me was great, but a little tight in the belly. My amazing, cool, feminist mom replied, “Well, I guess you know what you have to do then.”


She also got really indignant that a family friend wasn’t going to be there. He was a groomsman in another wedding the SAME DAY. I was like, mom, what was he supposed to do? Back out on being his friend’s groomsman? She was like, “well, yes.” At that point I asked her how she would feel if someone in my Bridal Party had done that to me, and she allowed that she would have been furious, so I think I was able to save him from her wrath. But, honestly.  This is from someone who is usually as sensible as can be.

If this puts it into any perspective … my mom got into a fight with me aobut my wedding gown.  Said she wanted me to pick another dress because it made me look like alittle princess.  Well i’m 32 and alittle old to be a friggin princess so I picked the gown I liked…. as my bridesmaid that went said, she nearly cried for me….

Then, she told the caterer not to bother me or my fiancee with the details and just come right to her.  Luckily for us, he was so uncomfortable with what she said, he came right to us about it.

Let’s see… what was next … Oh yes, she’s beeing trying to find a way to have her favorite chef cook for us, since we refused to have him cater the wedding.  She’s since convinced the bridesmaids to have my shower WHICH I’M NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT, at her house, which she’s now decided in less than 1 months time, to have relandscaped, the outside of the house repainted and the inside redecorated!!!! 

And I’ll leave you with this … she was shopping for $1500 dresses to wear to the wedding.  THATS MORE THAN MY DRESS COST ….. I need a valium now …. yet feel so much better venting …. AAARRRGGGHHH

@TankIsCute:  I think your mother can think whatever she wants—make it clear to your grandmother that you do NOT share your mother’s opinion and her gift is very  much appreciated

If your mother isn’t paying for anything she shouldn’t have anything to do with planning the wedding (especially if she’s being difficult)


You’re footing the bill, so you are the one who has to make the decisions! I would cut her out of everything and tell her she’ll get an invitation like any other guest…..

My mom has gone a little crazy too! I think its just a mom thing. Not only does she message/ call me a million times a day to talk about wedding stuff, but she has changed things with out asking me.

I had already talked to a friend of mine about doing the food, then all of a sudden one day, she tells me they taste tested some food and they are going to use them for the wedding. I WAS PISSED!

Then we were just going to do colored plastic table cloths and she decides, after me telling her 5 times, that we were going to do linen cloths.

Mothers get nuttier than squirrel turds when it comes to weddings.

And dont even get me started on my FMIL!
