I would just elope. Let her throw a party and invite everyone ever (on her dime) then make an appearance, but don’t let her have so much power over you.

I don’t know of any, but it sounds like this is turning into your mom’s wedding and from reading other postings this may turn into a serious regret later. Planning your wedding won’t always be fun and easy, but it should not turn into full-fledged blowouts either. I have a prominent tattoo on my shoulderblade, which has meaning to me regarding my nieces, and considered covering it up. When I mentioned it to my FI (who has none, I don’t think ANYONE in his family does) he said, “Why, that’s a part of you”. All of BMs got quite upset as well that I would consider it. 

 

@GoldfishPie:  Great advice. It seems you’re not happy. Go elope with the two of you and have your bash with all the trimmings your mom wants after and let her pay for it. If you don’t think you will stand up to them—don’t tell them you did it. At least it will ease your mind knowing it is done and you are at peace. I hate to hear you’re going through a lot of stress/headache for a wedding that you’re not even (seemingly) going to enjoy.

Dermablend works well.  Sorry your mom is being so crazy.  I get sad when I read stories like this.  This should be a happy and fun time for you and your family, not a series of screaming matches!

Don’t worry, you can definitely cover them. CoverFX is wonderful. My FI has two full sleeves and a few on the sides of his neck but needs to cover them up for work. His are very dark and he is very pale but CoverFX hiss them perfectly! Sephora carries it. There is also a product ,add by Kat Von D I believe that Sephora carries. We haven’t tried it but I’m sure if you go into sephora you can sample the products to see what will be best for you.

CoverFX is amazing its made and used on extremely severe burn victims (I do believe developed in a major hospital in Toronto) and if youve ever seen Kat Van Ds picture of herself with her product on it covered all of her tattoos which is a lot of work Im sure. I dont have any advice of things with your mom but I hope it works out. My grandmother bit her lip my entire wedding day because I have a full back which was very very visible and even framed with my dress. I thought of covering up but with FIs support we decide to just tell my grandma about the tattoo and knew she was to polite to say anything on the big day.

If I was in your shoes, I would elope and tell NO ONE, so that you and your FI have a wonderful day that is EXACTLY like you want.  Then do whatever your mother wants 🙂
