I’m sorta going through this. My mom was VERY excited when I first told her of my engagement but then once I actually started to plan things, her excitement suddenly seemed to vanish. I felt extremely bummed until I talked to her about it….turns out, she doesn’t know how to act or what to do. She’s never actually had a wedding. She eloped. Once I understood that and let her know that I really just want her to show excitement, things are a lot better. 

Not trying to be rude, but when your sister got married did she want to plan everything, every detail? Did she want just feedback, not necessarily approval or really “help”? That’s the only idea that I can think of….if you’re mom was just more present 3 years ago, maybe that’s what she think you just want. I’d talk to her.
