Ok..why is it that I cry and get sad everytime I see my mom cry. I am three months away from my wedding and I find my mom has gotten more and more emotional. I completly understand! We are best friends and Im the only girl. I jus want to know is it normal to be sad? Does anyone else feel this way? Its like bitter sweet! Happy to get married and be with the love of my life…but sad to leave my mom. UGH!!!!

Weddings are a very important transition in most people’s lives. Parents often see it as a dividing line between life phases….and they don’t always deal with it very well. Some parents try to control every aspect of the wedding, some get dramatic, some get emotional, some shut down. I think it’s all normal. It’s about setting boundaries and establishing you and your FI as a brand new family – and that can be tough. I think it’s actually the hardest part about weddings, and the part that is talked about the least, unfortunately!

My mom and I had some moments like that.
She has a home for women and over the last 5 years I’ve lived in the house. It was INCREDIBLY common for me to come in while she was still awake, sit at the end of her bad, and have awesome mom/daughter talk into the wee hours of the morning. With the home it was really the only time we got to talk b/c of conflicting schedules.
The night before the Rehearsal I came in and started chatting, half way through only to stop and realize that would be our LAST late night talk like that.
Definitely teared up, but my mom was great at keeping herself together and not making it a “bad” thing.
I feel ya… don’t worry though you’ll still be awesome friends afterward too =)

I’m very close to my mom, but we were both happy that I was getting married! We had no sad moments. Probably b/c I live very close to her so she knew she’d still see me all the time, and she does. Plus she loves my husband and loves having him as part of our family too.
