my mother just told me today how much she likes my fiance and knows that i’m making the right decision. i always thought she hated the fact i was getting married! then she goes on to tell me that she and my step father are willing to give us a couple grand in order to pay for the dinner at the reception! my fiance and i were planning on paying for the enire wedding ourselves! this relieves so much of my stress.
just as an added bous my mother said that she would love to make my flower arrangements…..i never thought they would help me with anything! people kept telling me that she’ll come around once the wedding gets closer. guess what?! she did!

Yay!!!! 🙂 That is truly a blessing. I sort of felt the same way when we told my parents that we got engaged, but I think that’s because my perception is that my dad is the kind who thinks no man would ever be good enough for his ‘little girl.’ I’m so happy for you that your mother and step father have come around and that your mother is so happy for you two and is wanting to contribute (not just financially, albeit it’s nice, but wanting to contribute to helping with flower arrangements, etc).
