Her behaviour at the dress fitting was rude, but otherwise, I don’t see a problem. She is excited about her wedding (assuming it happens, I suspect it won’t) just as you are excited about yours. Just stick with your date. If she wants to get married the week before, let her. Your weddings will be totally different. It is easily possible for two people in the same family to be engaged at the same time.

I’d be mad if my mom was planning to get married a week before me and I’d probably tell her if she mentioned it again. This isn’t a friend or cousin this is your mom!! She should not want to have her wedding so close to yours, if she wants to that date then she should do it the following year. She should want to help you plan your wedding not ignore it and try and upstage it by throwing her own the week before. She should be excited about the idea of being engaged but I think that if you really are not okay with her getting married the week before and she brings it up again you need to tell her.

Ok maybe your being a bit of a bridezilla sorry! Sometimes when it’s our own mom we can be hyper critical. Talking about her own engagement while dress shopping eh not such a big deal. The date seems ruder. Without being confrontational can’t you just nicely ask her to move it a month. Honestly asking for more than that would be selfish. The wedding may or may not even happen so why get yourself worked up for it. I don’t think you should spoil her excitement for it though. Believe me it could be worse as she could be all over your wedding lol!

You never know she might not even end up getting married and he said with in a year so for all you know he might wait until this time next year and she can have her wedding September 7th of 2014. 

Yes it sucks she is not super excited for you and has her mind somewhere else but just because this is going to be her second wedding does not mean it is any less special. You need to take a step back and realize your mom is just excited about the possibility of getting engaged they have not gotten engaged and have not set a date or anything. and if you haven’t booked a venue yet you might have to switch your date to a date they have open.
