I know how you feel! When I got engaged, my mom’s response was, “You’re kidding, right?” We’ve had a 4 year engagement, and at this point I am thankful that she’s participating in wedding activities. However, I’m having some real issues with our families getting along. I’m trying to just focus on making myself happy, and hoping that things will fall in to place. It is very stressful, and it has definitly had an effect on my relationship with my mom. I don’t really have any advice because I’m trying to figure it out myself, but at least I can tell you that you’re not alone!!

I’m sorry your family is reacting to you this way.  I dont know if I have any advice but *hugs*.  I’m glad to hear you have support from his family. Have you told them that their actions are really hurting you?  What if you just said something like I understand you have concerns and that you mean it from a loving place and I have heard your concerns but this is the man I’m marrying so I would really appreciate you supporting me.

I am so sorry to hear about your troubles!

I understand your issues, my Fiance and I have been together for over 8 years, and got together when I was in the middle of my divorce from my exhusband…he came along and raised my son as his own, and helped me be me again.

We have gone through alot of ups and downs, but have realized we are meant to be together…when I told my mom we are getting married this coming september, she said, gee glad I am here so I don’t have to go through all that planning with you!…holy crap! Talk about not into it!!!

You just have to go on and make your special day about your love for eachother, you and your guy. My FI’s parents haven’t been involved at all, my Future Mother-In-Law has stated she doesn’t want to go out the day before for mani-pedi’s with the girls, nor stay in the hotel the night before, nor be involved in planning! So hey, what goes around comes around is what I have to say to all of that! Karma is a bee-otch!

Have fun despite all the other people out there,. weddings are for celebrating love and togetherness, if your mom is less than excited, let that fall away and smile because you have found love in your life.
