@jessitaylor:  You and I share a similar problem. My grandmother, my mother is deceased, does the same thing when I talk about the wedding. She changes the topic to something about her. Perhaps you could ask her why she changes the subject when you bring anything up about the wedding? I asked my grandmother recently why she changes the subject when I bring up anything at all about myself and she apologized. I then felt guilty because I know she is getting older. Sometimes, I think other people, our parents included, are so consumed with what is going on in their on lives that they have a hard time contributing emotionally to ours. And sometimes, to be honest, people are just self-centered. Not saying this is your mother’s case. Maybe she feels like that’s something you could easily handle and you don’t need her input. Perhaps if you told her how excited you are about your wedding and how much her input on your wedding and advice would mean to you she’d talk more to you about it?

@jessitaylor:  My mom and I have a very odd relationship. We did not talked for 2 years and just recently made up. I always knew when I was getting married she would be weird. It bothers me a little but honestly I read some of the stories in here and I am glad. I look at it this way at least I can plan my wedding and have it the way I want it.
