WeddingBells2014:  wow. Your mom sounds like a complete nightmare on your wedding day.  I’m sorry you had to go through that.  Its unfortunate that you paid for your wedding, and your mom had so much control over it.  I was the MOH in my sister’s wedding- she lives in CA and I live in OK.  She wanted my son (who was almost 3 at the time) to be her ring bearer, so I flew him out also. Fast forward to her actual wedding day and my mom was super hateful the entire time.  I was taking photos with my sister and when we got back to the reception I realized my son was dirty… so I looked for my mom and asked her if she knew my son had gotten dirty (since she had offered to be in charge of watching him for the wedding day) to which she replied “I don’t know!  He’s your freaking son!”  ….I was LIVID.  I had paid the money to fly myself and my son out and lots of other expenses to be part of my sisters wedding and for my mom to say “He’s your son!”  really hit a nerve with me.  My mom was so awful at my sister’s wedding that when my dad tried to pay her a compliment on how pretty she looked, she snapped at him too.  The day after the wedding, she thought it was funny and laughed off her bad behavior.   So now its my turn to get married 🙂 and needless to say, I wont be having my mother there. We are jetting off to the Maldives…ALONE.  lol!

WeddingBells2014:  Wow. Your mother behaved like an absolute cow! I’m terribly sorry. Not sure what else to say, other than I’m GOBSMACKED that she would prove so rude. Was she extremely stressed about her “mother of the bride” role? I think some women do find that role stressful, and they let it bring out the worst in them. 🙁

It is really too bad that is how your wedding day played out. Just remember the most important thing was that you DID get married! Hopefully the pictures your photographer did get were awesome!

Sounds like my mom.  I totally understand how u feel.  My mom made my cousin to take picture with her camera for the whole wedding and all of them become a photo bomb in all my ceremony picture.  They were literally standing rite next to the groomen and trying to take pictures.  She also complains how come she is not the one walking me down the aisle.  We pay and plan the wedding all by ourselves as well.  And I really hate it when she wanted to take control over MY Wedding!
