springbride23:  I’m sorry you are feeling lousy. It sounds like your wedding is a really emotional time for your mom. Is there a way you can maybe make your deceased grandma a part of the day? Maybe you can have a picture of her somewhere? Maybe someone can do a special reading during the ceremony for your Mom and Grandma? I bet she would like that.

springbride23:  That is a revelation. I bet it was hard for your Mom too. Weddings can bring up so many emotions in people. Be patient with your Mom. I know how hard that can be, but I bet she’s really struggling with her own emotions right now. 

((((((((hugs))))))) Keep us posted!

springbride23:  I’m so sorry for your problems with your Mom. I’m the MOB, with 2 daughters getting maried 15 months apart. I don’t work outside the home, so I did 95% of the planning, research, calls, and meetings, and narrowed down vendors, for my daughters to see/talk to. The current bride is juggling work, graduate school, and clinical work for school. Although their father and I are paying for everything, I haven’t voiced my opinion, except to control excessive costs (like why pay $8 a plate, to rent a fancy charger, when the hotel provides their own large a plates, to put on the tables).

P.S. My wedding gown is from 1977 and even I would want to burn it now. UGGGLLLYYY!!!

Awww, your mom sounds like she has difficulty with emotional topics, and doesn’t know how to approach them.

If you’re willing, maybe invite your mom to coffee and let her know tht you’d really like to wear your grandmother’s necklace and buy your mom a special one for the occasion. If she still says no, etc, leave it be.  But I agree that a tribute to her and your grandmother at the wedding might be very effective.

Moms and weddings… it does sound like it’s bringing up a lot of emotion for her.

I get emotional about this topic b/c my mother passed away 14 years ago and won’t be at my wedding. Though I know there are areas where she would drive me crazy! I am so sad that I don’t get to share the day with her. 

I hope your mom comes around and that you get to wear the necklace (and earrings!) on the day! I’m sure it would actually make her soooo happy if you did!
