I think it’s awful that she makes you feel like you’re irritating her ๐Ÿ™

Quite frankly, who cares what she thinks about the venue/location. She isn’t the one getting married ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I do understand the anxiety behind the conversation. Maybe have your future hubby be the one to bring it up in conversation instead of you.. that might make her not so “irritated” if her SON is the one bringing it up in convo.. then if that goes good, have him be the one to tell her about Charleston. Might make it a little easier.

The best way is the quickest way, i.e “we have fallen in love with Charleston and are getting married there, we hope you will love it as much as we do”. The end. Don’t let people make you feel bad about YOUR wedding, if you and your Fiance are happy, thats all that matters. I hope it all works out

I would let Fiance bring it up to her and just be there as his support system. If she already finds you irritating it won’t help that “you are trying to take her baby away from getting married close to home” (which is the completely irrational thought she is going to have). I would have Fiance initiate the conversation.

And to complicate future pleans less with your Future Mother-In-Law, I would suggest keeping wedding talk to a minimum with her if she finds you irritating. She probably isn’t going to be very happy after this news.

@b.overmyer18:  And it’s your responsibility to break the news to her because??? 

You Fiance should be the one to tell her.  Let him handle it, you stay out of it… problem solved.
