@MsGinkgo:  Maybe because your wedding isn’t until next year and she feels there is still time?  You can always talk to her about how you are feeling As it seems like you both are close.

It’s your wedding and she probably doesn’t want to seem pushy. Your wedding is the most important thing going on in your life right now, but it’s not your mom’s. I think you should have an honest chat with her about how you’re feeling.

Yeah you’re wedding is still pretty far out (as is mine). My mom will ask about it now and then but I wouldn’t say we talk about it often at all, maybe once a month she’ll mention something. If you want her more involved just talk to her about it.

My mom wasn’t on board with the wedding until a month before. My mom just isn’t the type to get excited about a wedding or anything really girly or sentimental. Maybe your mom is like that? Or maybe your mom is upset about her personal situation (she can’t afford to help you have a nice wedding? Or like others said, it’s too far away right now. No one else is going to be as excited about your wedding as you, as harsh as it may sound, it’s the truth.

Our engagement exactly 2 years long, and it wasn’t until around the 9-8 month countdown when families started to take an interest. The closer it gets the more excited everyone will be!

@MsGinkgo:  Is your mom into weddings? My mom isn’t a big wedding person ish that didn’t change just because I was getting married.

my mom seemed really uninterested too, but I finally just decided to talk to her about it. Mostly she figured with over a year to go it was too far away to think about, but she was also trying to be considerate (afraid of being overcontrolling) and so just said “whatever makes you happy” in response to almost any wedding comment. i was happy for her good intentions, but told her that I would love for her to be a bit more involved as the wedding gets closer. she has been more positive since then =)

maybe it’s the same for you and she has good intentions behind her apparent disinterest?
