I’m so sorry she is giving you a hard time – i have a girlfriend who is seriously contemplating eloping (but i know she dreams of a big wedding) for the sole purpose she does not want to plan a wedding with her mother. I know weddings are super important to the moms but this takes it a little far – i would seriously put my foot down and not do some of it, she is a grown woman she can grocery shop and call for transportation for HER friends…because honestly if i could do it all over again i would have taken more time for myself that week leading up to the wedding. You want a day or two of being able to relax or wrap gifts and write notes. i felt so rushed those last few days.

Ugh, I’m so sorry you are dealing with that dear!  You do not sound like a bitch – most of those are just horrible on your mom’s behalf!  And I REALLY hate it when parents try to guilt their kids about how much they cost to raise – like, really??? No one forced you to have a kid, and if you do, raising them right is part of the package. 

The thing that makes your situation even more egregious is that your mom isn’t even paying for your wedding!  How has she gotten so much say in whats going on?

I know its too late now, but you really should have put your foot down at some point with your mom. I would not have let her take over the rehearsal dinner, who cares if she gets mad??? This is not HER wedding!!! I really cannot stand it when family members go ape shit over weddings. I thought my mom was going to be annoying with planning, but she was really great throughout it all, which made me really happy. I wish more moms were like mine when I planned… ((HUGS)) its almost over!!!!

I think once everything is said and done, maybe do something nice for your ILs and apologize for your mom. It sounds like they are nice people who want to help with their sons wedding, and your mom just bulldozed everything

(((HUGS))) It’ll all be over in one week! Once you have a chance to gather your thoughts in a less stressful environment I would talk to your mom and let her know how disappointed you were with her behavior. 

Sometimes it seems like the “kids” have to teach the “adults” how to act:)

I’m sure your day will be wonderful and you’ll enjoy EVERY second of it! Congrats in advance!
