I feel bad that your Mom is feeling down on “love”. It seems like she hasn’t had it easy.

Yet, I can’t help but think that it’s unfair of her to be negative/depressed about your upcoming marriage.  She IS your Mom afterall.  She should be happy for you and supportive.

Aw that’s a bummer. I know my mom thought she’d be my Maid/Matron of Honor and was crushed when I told her that’s not how it works! Eeks.

Can you do something special for your mom, like take her for a massage and dinner or something? And talk about stuff besides the wedding, maybe her? I think it’s perfectly normal for her to be bummedf and stuff. How long has it been since the break up? After a month or two she should be over the SUPER funk stage and be able to start being happy for you. It’s what moms do. If not, ask her what her reservations are. Maybe she just needs to hear it from you that everything’ll be ok.

She should be supportive for you, but it sounds to me like your mom needs YOUR support right now.
