- Wedding: September 2012
Let me start by saying that I love my mom and we get along great. However, I am her only daughter and she is very excited about helping plan my wedding. She wants to be at every vendor meeting and know every detail of what I want. I am all for her being involved, but sometimes I feel like she is trying to plan her wedding all over again. She got married in Aspen and only had my dad’s parents and a few close friends there so I feel like she wants to plan the big wedding that my parents couldn’t afford when they got married.
Also, she makes comments like “there won’t be any kids there, we will hire a babysitter,” instead of even asking what I think about it. I agree with her on most things, but sometimes she says things that just make me feel uncomfortable. I am a very laid back person and she is the opposite so I just try to take things in stride. I want to say something to her but I feel bad because they are paying for it all. Any advice from anyone who has had to have a talk with their mom or Future Mother-In-Law about backing off a bit? I don’t want to hurt her feelings, but it is my wedding.
