- Wedding: July 2017
I adore my mom, but I think she wants me to have a different wedding than I want. We met at a farmers market and we want to get married at the community centre at that park. It’s pretty casual and I don’t want to go into debt for the wedding.
My mom keeps trying to find a new venue for us and keeps talking about screaming kids at the playground nearby and wants me to have matching bridesmaids and sometimes laughs at our choices which really hurts my feelings because my mom’s opinion is important to me.
Im not sure but I think she never really had the wedding she wanted and she doesn’t understand that I want a different wedding than one SHE would want. It’s not out of meanness, i think it’s just that im her baby and she doesn’t 100% understand im a separate person from her. I think this is the biggest problem.
i think the second smaller problem is she doesn’t quite understand how much a high class, dressy wedding costs and she keeps pushing me towards more expensive things not knowing it’ll get up there in price.
I don’t know how to deal with this really. Right now I’m sticking to my guns but listening to what she has to say. However it’s making me second guess a lot of my choices because I do value her opinion.
