I’m a MOB.  Has she always been like this or is this something totally new?

  • Wedding: January 2014

@lovetobeehappy: Ugh, I’m so sorry this is happening to you!

My mom is making me insane as well. She can’t financially contribute to the wedding, which is toooootally fine, but she offered to pay for and plan a casual family get-together we’re having a week after our intimate wedding ceremony.

I helped her find a venue that she could get for $50 for the whole day, but she has spent weeks complaining vaguely about it and looking at other venues. She won’t say what’s WRONG with it, but she keeps going and visiting sites that cost $1500+ for the whole day (or some sites that she would have to rent for the entire weekend! WTF!). She won’t take any of my suggestions re: food, either, but constantly tells me that “it’s impossible” to find any food. Also, last week she asked me if I wanted her to get a band?! But then she’ll complain about how she can’t do things she wants because she’s “saving for her daughter’s wedding.” She just LOVES to be a victim. I am seriously ready to just say, “Sorry, never mind, we appreciate your offer to help, but NO THANKS.”

Also, today she freaked out at me because I won’t give her sisters my Facebook password so that they can look at my engagement pictures online. None of them have Facebooks and refuse to create them, but *I’m* in the wrong for not wanting all of them to have my FB password. ARGH!

Lol, thanks for creating this thread so I could vent. And I sincerely hope your mama issues get better! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that mine won’t be a nutball on the day of the wedding, but I’m not expecting too much!
