I understand what you’re feeling.  I live in the same house with my mom and she still seems to have no interest in what I’m planning.  When I ask her her opinion it seems like more of an annoyance than anything else.  I’m not planning some super expensive wedding like my sister’s (which my parents paid for) and so everything I’m picking just doesn’t seem good to her, but my fiance and I are footing the bill for our wedding.  It’s the same with my bridesmaids (sisters), they aren’t really up to giving opinions either.  It was a hassle to get them to go dress shopping and when I finally did, they just kept saying which one do you like, it doesn’t matter to us.  I’m not sure what advice to give you because I’m kind of stuck like you. Pretty much I just keep asking for opinions and hoping as the wedding gets closer my mom will start to show more interest, but who knows.

Let me tell you something……Although it is not for all moms……….so many moms just aren’t into feelings…….. some moms just cant express themselves…….and if you ask for their opinions….. they’re like “ What to say”……. It’s like, they’re missing that part of expressing in them……

One of my friend’s mother was the EXACT same way……..and she asked her about it and she said “well I don’t know what to do and say “………

It wasn’t that she wasn’t into her………… So, give her time. It’s definitely not something that you can get all down about because chances are, she’s just not a mother  type ………It’s out of her comfort zone……….i would suggest you to stop asking her opinion and sharing your ideas with her till she ask herself…….
