Anyone else’s mothers driving them BANANAS?!?
Since getting engaged her opinions on everything have been ridiculous! To me ordering my veil on ebay (Hey I saved $100), to decorating, my wedding party etc. She has to dislike everything I do!
Her latest thing is my invitations. She talked me into buying paper to print & make my own invitations when I wanted to just order them. And now the time has come to make 200 of these suckers & she doesn’t like anything about them. Hates my font, hates my wording, hates my placement – but has no ideas on what I should do. Ahhhhhh!!!!!! Anyone else having troubles with their mothers?

Yes. My mother and I have been fighting like I’m still a teenager. For my own sake I just stopped asking for her advice.

My mother was the most irrational/dramatic I have ever seen her during my wedding planning. And she’s been through a messy divorce. It was crazy!

The part that really gets me going is when she brings up money. It has NOTHING to do with her! Everytime I buy something it always goes back to: “Shouldn’t you be saving for the wedding?” or “Oh, isn’t that a bit expensive to be spending for one day?” when I bought $150 wedding shoes. Errrrrrr!!!
