You don’t need to make her happy! It is YOUR wedding and your marriage!

This will be your third wedding, do what you want!

You deserve a fancy dress! You deserve to be happy! Keep reminding youself that!

You are absolutely right! Why should you spend your dress money on getting your family to Savannah?! The dress is not to impress wedding guests; it’s to make you feel beautiful and for your husband to see you in!

Paying for your folks and his family is more than generous. If your mom wants the rest of your family to come that badly, then she should pay for their tickets with the money she would have spent on hers. 

Just go with your gut and remember that this wedding belongs to YOU and your FIANCE, not your parents or anyone else. Best of luck!

I think that you should def. plan to have a party for your family when you get back. Take her up on any offer of help she gives you. she probably feels a little left out (yes, I know you were including her, but she probably doesn’t see simple attendance that way),

Tell her the dress is for you…and Jim.

Maybe she’ll come around now that you have talked with your brother. Chances are that she is going to vent to them about it, and if you guys are okay, they’ll stick up for you. It will all work out! 😀
