- Wedding: August 2013
Okay, so I need advice. Please be honest with me, am I overreacting? Or is this as rude as I think it is?
So at first my engagement was fine, my mother was being really supportive and it was great. Then, she got back together with her ex-boyfriend. Now, all of a sudden she CANNOT stop talking about getting engaged to him. He told her to expect an engagement ring within the year.
Okay, that’s all fine and dandy and I was happy for her (a little peeved that her engagement would steal my and my fiance’s thunder, but I knew that this thought was irrational for obvious reasons), but slowly, it’s become about her and HER wedding.
She spent the entire time I was trying on wedding dresses for the FIRST time texting him and kept talking about him and their engagement on the car ride to the dress store.
Now, she’s gone as far as to “joke” about me moving my wedding date (we’re planning on September 14th, so it’s not too hot or cold) so she could have her wedding date September 7th (her anniversary), the week before mine is supposed to happen. We haven’t done invitations yet, so the date isn’t totally “official,” but this is still wrong, right?
We were originally planning on having our wedding date on the 7th, but when I found out that was her anniversary, I quickly nixed that idea. I want my own anniversary! Even though I had nixed the idea, she “jokingly” said I couldn’t have it anyway.
I’m about at my wits end. I’m the type of person to keep stuff bottled until it explodes and I’m about to explode. She is divorced, so this is her second wedding. Am I in the wrong to want MY shining moment, for the ONLY wedding I’ll ever have? Ugh! Help?
