Just out of curiosity, what do other Bees think that the MOB should be doing in terms of wedding preparation? Honestly, my mother is making my wedding all about herself when she actually does care to talk about it- rarely.
She is far more concerned with her new boyfriend, picking out a sexy dress for herself- in a similar style to mine, and making sure her table is front and center at the reception (far away from my dad’s table of course). She has already refused in advance to help me with my make up that day because she will be doing her own (she is VERY good with make up), was too busy to go dress shopping with me, is refusing to stay in our hotel block because her ex (my dad) MAY stay there, and has already warned me she wont take any pictures with her and my dad both in them. She has not contributed to any showers- My Maid/Matron of Honor plans everything and the bill is footed between BMs.
The latest is that I have been having the Maid/Matron of Honor mail her invitations to every shower on purpose so I can save them for my scrapbook. Mom informed me yesterday that SHE wants them for HER scrapbook and they are HER invitations. Whatever. I’m just over it. But it’s sad not to have a mom help out much. 🙁
I feel like she should be excited/helping me more..What are the typical or traditional MOB responsibilities, and is anyone else in my shoes?
