Not at all! I think you mom is being the selfish one. It’s not about her.

Ugh.  Mothers.  I really don’t like guilt.  Did you mean that your mom could or could not afford to go?

Regardless, I know how tough these situations are.  Mothers know how to push buttons to get what they want, and personally, I really don’t like it.  I think it so much better to have honest, straightforward communication.

You could always elope, have the trip you want, and then have a small ceremony for show that your mom could see. Would that suffice?

I think you should be able to have your ceremony any way you want.  But my heart does go out to your mom, because I think feeling like my child did not want me to see her get married would crush me too. However, guilt tripping is never cool.

I am not sure why you were so upset that she would not come to a fitting with you, when you don’t even want her there for the ceremony… but maybe I missed something.  But I am glad it worked out with her coming for it.
