Ugh…I’m sorry! Wet blankets are no fun. On the bright side–did you take any pics of the dress so we can all gush about how pretty it is? 😀

That sucks that your mom isn’t happy for you.  I agree that if she’s ruining the experience for her you should tell her she can leave. 

Just make sure you tell your future bridal consultants that they’re now playing “beat the dress”.

Ugh I worry my mother is going to be like this too. I think your strategy is a good one and I would say to just give yourself a mental monologue of “She will not ruin my dress, she will not ruin my dress.” I’m sorry she is being like this. Can you maybe find something that is of interest and allocate that activity to her?

Just think about the other positive girls and ladies around you. They all support you, are happy for you, and want to be there for you in a good way. That should keep ya grounded should your mum act all grumpy
