- Wedding: March 2012
This woman I have considered to be my best friend, someone who I would actually like to vent about this but i am really surprised at what a Momzilla she is being.
My mother told me today that I need to get collagen implants in my face (I’ve lost 160 pounds) so my lines are showing. It’s $1,000…but she is complaining that $5,000 for a wedding is too much. She did cover our reception but wants a say in everything. “Don’t buy any decorations with out my approval. There’s going to be church people there and I don’t want it to look chincy.” How do I politely tell her….since she isn’t paying for it then she doesn’t have a say in it.
She told me today she would be glad when this sh*t is over. She is being extremely negative. WHen we first got engaged, she told me she was going to give me the wedding that she was never able to give my other siblings and that she would pay for it all. I asked for $5,000 and she blew up. That’s way too much money, no one spends that much on a wedding. So me and fiance decided that if she could be nice enough to cover the reception we would get everything else. She told me no one reserves a reception space 5 months ahead of time, it’s way too far away. No one send out invitations two months in advance, cause they will forget. When I took her to see me in my wedding dress, she complained that it was taking time out of her day and that I should spend the $17,000 to get the loose skin on my arms fixed. Sorry about the endless rant…but how the hell do I get through this with out the drama…mind you, my mother is 70 and I am 33. Some folks say she’s tripping because I am her baby and she will feel like she is losing me. The funny thing is a couple weeks ago, she was compalaining about my aunt and asked me “Have you ever dealt with someone so negative?”
