- Wedding: May 2012
Ok, I feel like this is very common, for a mom to take over their daughters wedding. But I really don’t know what to do about it. We’ve had a rough relationship since I was in highschool, and we both want this relationship to get better. The problem is that our personalities just clash in general, we are very different people. So we don’t see eye to eye on a lot. Another problem, we are both artists, with a completely different tastes in style, which makes things difficult because things I love… she….. doesn’t, and vise versa. So anyway I’ve been trying really hard to make this a good thing, and to keep her involved and to listen to her input, and the ideas that she has, because she is really artistic and really good at putting things like this together, and I know she really wants to be a part of this. Ok so I got my wedding dress, a couple weeks after I had a little bit of a freak out about if it was the right dress, but after calming myself down and thinking about it, I realized that I love this dress and I didn’t like any other dress more than the one I got. the one I got was my favorite out of all of them. therefore my freak out was over. Well my mom is now trying to push another dress on me, because she doesn’t think the dress goes with my wedding. She gave me an ultimatum, saying that I could keep my dress and change everything else in the wedding or change my dress and keep the wedding. I don’t understand what is wrong with both, but it her mind it doesn’t work. I think it’s nice that she wants it to be perfect, and wants it to be an “awe factor” but I want my dress with my wedding. But she just won’t have it. And I want to be happy, but I want her to be happy too, but if she’s happy then I won’t be, and if I’m happy she won’t be. What do I do?
