@shanbp:  that sucks! I’d be devastated if my mom thought those things! Hopefully your FMIL ignores her comments and throws you a fabulous party with people who are genuinely happy for you!

I bet she said it because the wedding is so close now, and she’s annoyed that your BMs didn’t do anything for you.  I don’t think it’s that she doesn’t want the best for you – it’s that she does.

My shower was the day before my wedding.

My grandmother hosted it, mom would have if Grandma didn’t take over. 

Sorry your mom is having such a hard time with the idea, hopefully one of your BM’s or friends or Aunts or someone will come through for you.

Sorry you’re not having a shower! From what I’veheard, though, they’re really hit-or-miss!

Well your BM’s and MOH should be holding the shower for you not your mom, so I can see where she is coming from. Although people don’t need to bring gifts to your shower, I don’t know one person who wouldn’t, I do see that it would be expensive to give you two gifts in one week. On the other hand your mom should be more supportive! Why don’t you talk to your BM’s about helping your FMIL put on a shower? she seems more into it then your mom.

My mom has that kind of attitude towards bridal showers.  Its not something that was done in her family or friends circle at all.  My family is French Canadian, and I guess its not part of the custom for them?  I never went to bridal showers until my friends had them.  One of my cousin had one thrown by an aunt on her other side of the family and like only 3 people of our extended family went, it’s just not something they really do or take part in.

Talk to your mom, ask what her concerns are, and at least tell her to let other people throw you one.

@shanbp:  I am angry at moms these days. What the hell is wrong with them. It is the most important part of our lives and they just try to ignor everything. I wish I could help or you could help me 🙁
