That sucks and I’m sorry. I went through something similar with my mom when I first got engaged. She found out through a mouthy friend on Facebook, called me, told me she hoped it was a joke and refused to acknowledge the fact that I was even engaged for almost a year. Eventually, she came around. Maybe your mom will do the same? 

I think you’re doing right in not including her right now. You don’t need that kind of negativity while you should be thrilled and over the moon. 

I hope things get better for you!

First of all: Congratulations! This is a happy time for you; soak up all the happiness you are getting from your father’s side of the family.

From your previous thread, it seems like your mom is jealous, which is really strange, but it’s been known to happen before. Give her time to accept the fact that you’re engaged.

You don’t have to include her in anything. Just spend time with positive people who will encourage you in your planning!

@echolove:  Very weird, but your Mom is jealous.  Yikes!  Take it as a compliment, focus on your Dad who is willing to share your happiness, and she can be a guest if she chooses to.  Don’t let anyone rain on your parade!  If you know it’s right then that’s all that matters.  Congrats!
