  • Wedding: March 2013

Yup, my mum basically went batshit crazy about the wedding. She was constantly thinking my FMIL was more involved than she was, accused me of loving them more than her, etc – and when we chose a venue closer to their place than my parents’ it got worse. 

I won’t go into detail because I have a thread in here talking about the gory stuff but needless to say it became abusive – and now neither of my parents are coming at all. 

 

I do have to say that despite the awful upset planning the wedding has been a lot easier since!

 

My advice, more than anything, is DO NOT LET IT FESTER. Say something. My biggest regret from all of this is that I hadn’t called my mum out on her behaviour sooner and nipped it in the bud before it got completely out of control. 

 
Stand your ground – this is your wedding. She loves you, and if she really understands then she will give in – and if she doesn’t understand, you need to be firm but nice. You appreciate their help, etc, but this is your wedding and the details are yours to plan!
