@bellacherie:  Your mom is trying to emotionally blackmail you and don’t fall for it. A professional company is best to work with. You’ve seen the results of non-professional cakes and you are smart to want to avoid the drama of it.

The lady may very well make beautiful, great tasting cakes, but if you can’t see any pics or taste her product, it would take a lot more than trusting my Mom to get me to commit to that.

Leaving that aside, you can be the one to restore the relationship with your mother. Instead of just giving her a message for your Dad, you could ask how she is doing, when you can see her again etc.. If she is letting pride get in the way, be careful you don’t also. Too many moms and daughters have let months and years pass, all in the name of who was right or wrong. Tell her out loud that you don’t want this incident to get in the way of your relationship and you hope that she feels the same way.

Weddings tend to make everyone highly sensitive.  Especially the immediate family of the bride and groom.  Tell your mother you value her opinions, and most of all her desire to help you and her caring about your wedding.  Then tell her that you hope she can understand that it’s not so much a matter of not trusting her judgment as it is just making up your own mind about who is your favorite cake vendor and whose approach makes you the most comfortable.
