I’ve actually been planning my wedding for quite a while, even before Mr.Bobbypin proposed. We had been talking about getting married and all that jazz which of course got me hooked on wedding things. But even though we have so much done, it still seems like we’ve only done so little. We know what we are and aren’t having. But We’re kinda hindered by my mom(who very franctly has major control and other issues). I know i’m young, but I’m very ready for this. I’ve talked to her about this but she has seperation issues. And i promise you i’m not just saying this.
Have any of you other lady’s had problems with your parents?

I think no matter the age it can be hard for parents to let go. Getting married is a transition for everyone. I’d encourage you to keep talking to your mom and be open with how you are both feeling. Reassure her that just because you are getting married, it doesn’t mean that you will suddenly disapear. This last xmas our mom kept talking about how it was the "last xmas." I had to remind them that things may be different next year, but it isn’t the last one.
If your mom is hindering you, maybe give her a job to do on her own. Even if it is researching for vendors and giving you feedback. I know sent my mom a list of florist websites to look at and she has been doing that. I may or may not take her advice but at least she feel involved. She also looked at tons of wedding dresses to "help" me. Hope that helps!
