@waitingwonderland:  Wow, if my mom said that to me, I’d be seriously hurt, too. I’m sorry she’s not excited for you at all. I don’t have much advice to give except that she’ll probably regret not being more involved after the fact. I’m sorry. 🙁

My mom doesn’t really believe in marriage, and while she doesn’t say such tactless things, I understand the want to talk to your ‘mommy’ about something so exciting and wonderful in your life, but not really have the chance to do so.  

I just don’t, that’s how I have dealt with it.  I don’t call her about anything to do with the wedding, if she asks I tell her, and she is excited about getting her own dress and that kind of stuff so occassionally we chat about it.  But she won’t ever be gushing over it or anything to do with it, she wasn’t at my first wedding either.  I’ve learned that I have to be ok with that, and I am.

You need to focus elsewhere. Is there someone who IS excited? Is his mom excited? Do you have another family member you can call or a good friend you can say these things to?  I think you need to take a step back and realize that no matter what you tell her, you’re either going to get no response or one that you don’t want to hear.  Save yourself the pain and heartache and come tell us about it instead.

I’m sorry your mom is being such a bummer. Anybody would be hurt by her behaviour. Do your best to ignore her comments and confide in someone who is excited for you.

@waitingwonderland:  Aw *hugs* that sucks. My mom hasn’t been quite as outright rude, but she’ll say stuff like weddings are a waste of $$ and eloping is the best idea, and she’s done with kids so doesn’t want to babysit future grandkids etc.

I dunno, she is good in many ways but it still makes me a little sad. Oh well!
