At first I was so excited about the engagement. My mom went to a couple of appointment with me to try on dresses and now, its almost like they are completely and totally uninterested in this wedding at all! They say they like and approve of my Fiance, but whenever I try to plan anything they are like “we have time”- the wedding is 5 months away and I have yet to find a venue! Whenever I call them or send them emails I have to beg for feedback, when I try to talk to them on the phone they quickly have to get off the phone” and/or they change the subject. My older brother got married 2 years ago and they spent 5k on his wedding (thats just for his side)- I am not evening asking for a smidge of that….I just want help, ideas, etc. I feel I am not being heard, I am getting the cold shoulder on anything wedding related.

I sympathize with you. In comparison to other mothers I hear about, my mother isn’t very involved in the wedding. She went with me dress shopping once and offered to pay for the dress, which is really nice. She asks about the wedding plans sometimes, but I think it is just to be polite. Some people aren’t that in to weddings, try not to take it personally. Can you ask your FI’s family or your friends for ideas?

I totally know how you feel. My family was excited when we first got engaged, but then my sister got pregnant with the first grandchild in our family. My mom has been waiting for this moment for a LONG time. So, naturally, all the interest and concern is with her and her pregnancy. Also, my other sister is selfish (and the youngest, thus, spoiled) and is too busy going out and dealing with her own life to be of any help.
My advice is to talk to friends or even your Fiance about it. Or, just post your ideas here and we’ll be happy to give you some advice or suggestions! 🙂
