First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on becoming engaged! enjoy this time, be happy and take in every minute!

I am sorry that your mom was not more supportive…! I cannot offer you any advice, except to sit down with her and tell her that despite your differences (or differences between your new fiancee and your mom), it would mean the world to you if she can come on board and be truly happy for you! Are you happy? If so, that is really all your mom should be concerned about! Tell her you are happy, and that you need the number one person in your life (your mom) to share your joy with!

Congratulations again!

Is your mom, generally unsupportive, or is it just this one thing? If it’s just this one thing, sit down with her, hear out her concerns. If she’s generally unsupportive, then she’s probably not going to change for your wedding (or ever). My mom hasn’t really been involved in my wedding planning because she doesn’t do anything but judge and criticize. I’ve been relying on my friends instead. If this is just how she is, you can’t fix it. Just get your support elsewhere and keep reminding yourself that you’re not the problem – she is.
