This is why I cut my mother out of my life 4 years ago. I do not, for the life of me understand why so many parents these days are jealous of their children. Fi and I deal with this every day from his family as well. You have my most heartfelt empathy, and I am sending you lots of loving thoughts and hugs!!!

I really have nothing for you on this–my mother demanded ours be changed from “together with their families” to “together with their parents”. I gave in since I have bigger battles to fight.

The thing that stands out for me is how she practically wants to wear a wedding dress to her own daughters wedding…..so weird!

I’m sorry you’re having to deal with it, but it sounds like it’s going to be hard to rationalize with her if she gets so hysterical over things like invites.

This is absolutely crazy.  Don’t worry yourself with whether or not she will show up.. if she doesn’t, I guarantee she’ll regret it more than you will.  Everytime I read something like this, I’m so grateful for my mom.. I’m sorry you have to deal with this so close to your wedding.  :-/

my mum has been a little crazy.. i havent done the invites yet but i think she will want her name there.. but i dont.. because we are also paying for the wedding.. so i think that it should be together with their families..


also i want a small wedding.. like only fourty guests max.. she wants her friends there.. i dont.. and she has made comments on the ppl sho we are inviting.. argh so annoying i just clam up when she does it..

it has made me not want to do any planning..

but remember its about the love and commitment of you and your other half..

perhaps say to her that your very dissapointed in how she has been behaving. you are gratefull for the love and support that she has given you and it has helped to shape the person who you are today. Tell her you did not intentionally mean to disrespect her, by not putting her name down. And you do want her to come to your wedding as it is a celebration that you cant imagine her not being at. She is important but so are you! tell her that you thought she would have been able to take part of this in a way that celebrates you!

hmm i dont know what else to say..

maybe i should take my own advice


good luck
