I know that other posters have the same problem I do, and while I’m dealing with it, I’m still filled with sadness over it, and just need to vent. My Fiance and I have been dating for 3 years now, and we got engaged this past February. Our wedding is set for November 2nd.
Right after we got engaged, I talked to my mom about our plans once, and she seemed somewhat disengaged, but I assumed that was because she was still soaking in the news. When I got my dress, I sent her photos, and no response. I used to try to engage her about the wedding, but honestly, I’ve stopped bringing it up at all. This is fairly typical for my parents, who are extremely interested in their sons, but as their only daughter I had hoped for them to at least be happy for me and excited about the wedding.
I know they will be there for November 2nd, but that’s pretty much it. We would have eloped, but I think I was having delusions about this big happy family gathering where everyone was so happy for us. Anyways, thank you for listening! I know I need to get over it, but some days, the apathy hits harder than others.

Hopefully when you get closer to the date, your Mom will show a little more interest.
If it helps to make a positive out of this…sounds like this will be your and FI’s wedding- not your parent’s party. There are so many posts on WB where parents take over/dictate- your special day will be exactly that. 🙂

@rebwana: I agree. Good luck OP! And be excited, November will be here before you know it!

I am so sorry! I do know what that feels like. I had to end all wedding talk with my mom because her comments were so off to me. I know it’s hard, but try to bask in the love that you and your Fiance share and how you’ll be building your own new family just the two of you!

I also understand and know how you are feeling.. and it does hurt… my mother ask nothing and has even stopped calling me about anything since we set the date and venue! I listen to others sharing their experience of buying their wedding dress with their mothers and yet mine does not even care.
I do know this much – that no matter what mine or Fiance family think or don’t do in regards to the wedding (including not attending) it will NOT dampen our day or our love for one another.
