I’ve found that I am very sensitive to how much I think people care about my event. Even though I have a great relationship with my mom, I am very sensitive to anything I perceive as innattentive. I think it goes with the territory. For you, add the stress of some tension in the relationship, and you have the perfect little rain cloud of bad feeling.

I think you are totally normal.

Try not to let it bother you.  What you perceive as inattention may be her trying to convince your SD that she cares about your SS’s wedding.  If I were your mom that would be really stressful, so try not to be too mad.  But are your feelings normal?  Yes.  Yes they are.  Heck, I’m mad for you!

Do you think maybe it’s hard for your SS or SF to take your planning ‘seriously’ because you aren’t technically engaged yet?

I say this with all love, as another Waiting Bee, because I’ve seen it happen too many times – people are so stuck on the idea that you have to have a ring on your finger to be capable of making decisions or planning a wedding, and that’s just not true! Maybe they’re dealing with that?
