I think you need to divide and conquer here.  Let him take care of his mom, and you work on yours.  It doesn’t sound like anything is going to change overnight, but more of a gradual change.  They are probably still adjusting to your close relationship, and with time hopefully that will get easier.  Try to spend time with each mother on their on and find things you all enjoy doing, and perhaps eventually they will become more supportive.  Best of luck!

when I was engaged to my last fiance my mum was very much like this, I know it’s tough but try to remember you’re her little girl, and you always will be to her, even although you’re a grown woman!  Maybe try and delegate some wedding tasks you don’t care about to her, ribbons for favours, or what shade of flowers for your centrepieces.  Try and involve her a bit and then she’ll feel like you guys are bonding together.  She will need to accept that you are flying the nest though, and thats hard for both of you.  Good luck x
