lol, my mom has been treating me like I’m a bridzilla because I don’t have strong opinions on a lot of things. We meet and she says, “Now let’s all be nice.” I’m like, “Who was not being nice? I said, you can pick and you acted like I cursed at you.”
I think mainly my mom is freaked out that I care so little about all the dumb little details. Yes, I’m not delegating the task of remembering a pen for the guest book to someone. I think we can just find a pen on the day of, no big deal.
She’s acting like the apocalypse is going to come on the day of the wedding and I won’t be able to do anything but wallow in nervous fear while everything falls apart around me. I say, if something goes wrong every friend and family member I have will be there and happy to help out if necessary, chill!

from the colors of the wedding, to the dresses my bridesmaids are wearing, to the shoes I will be wearing my mother has been stating her feelings all Verbal Diahharea style on me or just plain demanding I do X, Y, or Z.
I felt I did my part with her during the wedding process so far, and I will just leave her out from now on. She can show up and deal as far as I’m concerned.
1. I took her to my first wedding gown try on. I got a “You look fat”. mind you, she is not skinny at all!
2. I took her to my bridesmaid dress / mother of the bride dress search. She demanded A. My bridesmaids wear Long Dresses and B. they wear Teal dresses. Mind you, my colors are Navy blue and Pink. I was fine with giving her the long dress thing, but I got so mad I told her I was picking the dress color. She just wouldn’t stop saying it.
3. I pulled out a pair of gorgeous shoes that were pink (I have since switched to navy for my something blue) shoes that I told her I’d be wearing for the day. She was horrified. How could you not wear white shoes for your wedding! That’s horrible, etc. etc. My question is when the heck can you wear white shoes for something other than your wedding?
So now I’m just not going to even involve her. She can show up and enjoy or not enjoy the day as much as she wants. I’m not dealing with her. She has bad taste anyway. I saw her wedding photos. Poof shoulder dress, pointed sleeves, obnoxious amounts of beading and she wore a cap on her head. I’m sorry, I’m not trusting anyone’s judgement that wore a cap on their head.

My Mom has gone a little crazy, but in a really funny not getting-on-your-nerves sort of way:) I laugh it off and keep reminding myself that she’s just excited!
Over the weekend I gave her a call to see what she was up to:
Me: “Hey Mom! What do you have going on today?”
Mom: “I’ve just been working on getting the office cleared out and organized.”
Me: “That’s good…it’s always nice to have things in order.”
Mom: “Well, I had to do it now because we’ll be preparing for your wedding next year.”
WHHHHAAAAAA??? Oh lord Mother…you amuse me:)
Thank god she did it this weekend, right?!?!

Oh I’m so glad this made it’s way up to the top again 🙂
Yeah, @Miss Smurf: I use it a lot. Not always in reference to my mom… but it fits.
My mom continues to be even more crazy, telling me today (paraphrasing) that my invites were ugly.
The joys of weddings and families.
At least you know that even professional wedding planners are subject to bat shit crazy moms 😀

Oh my gosh, my Future Mother-In-Law is the same way. I really wanted to have a simple, homemade type of wedding since I’m paying for it and its just my style. But Future Mother-In-Law and grandma-in-law are giving me such a hard time about all the little details, when I really don’t have an opinion on all these things.
I was going to do a donut cake (fun, cheap, unique) but they INSISTED I have cupcakes or an actual cake (they have talked about it every single sunday for the last 4 months). I figured since they are making me get cupcakes…they would just design it and buy it. But she wants me to meet with the bakery and go over different tier options and icing designs..and this is the whole reason I didn’t want cake. I just want it to be tasty and look decent, I’m pretty sure none of my guests will remember our wedding by the cupcakes that I served.
And for some reason she is obsessing over the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I don’t see this day as a super huge big deal, but apparently its a bigger event than the actual wedding day? The rehearsal dinner could possibly be way more formal than my actual wedding. Ugh.

@thewheelsonthebus: Oh thank the lord, jebus!!!! I thought I was the only one with a crazy mother! Let’s see, she’s called my wedding a circus (because my main color is cobalt blue), she says everything I choose is unclassy and looks like crap, she told my Future Sister-In-Law (groom’s sister) she didnt feel that she should be in the wedding because she was married, oh! and my personal favorite, I had to talk her out of wearing a WHITE MERMAID DRESS WITH A TRAIN TO MY WEDDING!!!!! Btw my dress is mermaid, and, oh ya, WHITE!!!!
So many other things but the list is way too long.
