Well, unless you know what she’s upset about you really can’t do anything about it. Just try not to talk much to your family since they’re pretty chatty cathies.

And tell your mom it bothers you and upsets you that she’s so upset and that she probably misunderstood something. Try to appeal to her sensitive side. Moms dig that. But if she’s just going to assume it’s her problem, maybe she has her own issues going on with the family that have nothing to do with you.

Wow it’s tough to say go talk to her, if she literally drives away from you.  And maybe whatever is going on, is more about her.  ( I’ve known some MOBs who needed meds for their kids’ weddings.)  Are you sure it’s stemming from someone at the party saying something?  Maybe she’s having issues trying to adjust that your life is starting a huge new chapter. 

Well I’d say, you have to try a different avenue.  Either let her cool down for a few days, then approach her.  Or ask your dad to talk to her to get her to open up.  Perhaps you can write her a letter.  She might be more likely to read it, than listen to you. And with letters, you can get really organized, rather than talking off the cuff, and missing a point you wanted to make.

Can you think of anything you might have said that could be misconstrued?  How has planning been going with her?  You still have a year to go.  But have you been shopping, for example, and bickering about what she’s going to wear, or how much your dress costs?  Are your parents paying for the wedding, and you’ve been fighting over XYZ?  Guest list issues?  Are you moving in with your Fiance and she disapproves?  Moving away after the wedding?  (You don’t have to answer.  Just trying to get you thinking.)  Good luck.  Keep us posted.
