My mom and I are quite close to each other, but it just seems everytime I try and talk to her about the wedding she shrugs it off, and doesn’t really keep up a conversation about it. Well theres a wedding show today, and a friend of mine drove 6 hours to spend the weekend with me and we had planned on going to this wedding show for a couple of weeks. Well now today my moms all upset because I didnt invite her to the show. And I feel really bad about it! I really want to spend the evening with my best friend and a couple girls from school, but I dont want my mom to feel left out about anything, especially since shes helping out a lot when it comes to the wedding. I mentioned that she can come to the next one with me but shell be on vacation, and that will be the last one of the year. I am finding this more stressing than fun! 🙁

I’m going through similar things with Future Mother-In-Law. Only it was with dress shopping. I invited her and my Future Sister-In-Law the first two times we went looking for dresses (for both me and the bms) but they both declined and generally didnt seem interested. So I didn’t bother inviting them the 3rd time and Future Mother-In-Law was very hurt that she wasn’t included. FI told me she thinks I don’t like her. It’s like I can’t win with her ever.
I try to be very sensitive to who I talk to about wedding stuff. If someone doesn’t act interested in hearing, then I probably wouldn’t think to include them either.
I think you should just tell her that you should just lay it flat out for her. Tell her how you feel about her general attitude and explain that you honestly thought she wouldn’t be interested, but tell her that you would love if she would go. Im sure you will have a lovely time with everyone! I went to my first show with my mom, 3 sisters, and my best friend who happened to be visiting his family in WV and drove the 5 hours to go to the show with me. Actually him and his parents came, so we had a huge group, and we all had a blast.

Let her come to this one too, just invite her and be done with it. Its a wedding show, you will have loads of special time with your friends in the future. THE POINT OF THE WEDDING SHOW IS TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING. Its not a “friendship” show. Hope this helps
