When I got engaged my daughter was breaking her engagement I really don’t know how to ask for my daughters help with my wedding she said she is fine with the break up but I see it in her eyes when I talk about my July 5, 2010 wedding. I really want her to be involved with my wedding but every time I bring something up she changes the subject. I’ve had to do most of the planning my self (which isn’t a problem) but I really really want her to go wedding dress shopping with me because she will tell me the truth on how I look in the dresses but I don’t know how to ask I only have 8 weeks.

I think you’re right and yes, she is probably sensitive right now. I bet she will play a special part in your wedding right? Well maybe have a girls’ spa day together and just spend extra time together. Have a heart to heart talk too just the two of you.
I’d let her know (I’m a mom, but to a little boy but could only imagine this) that I love her, that if anything makes her uncomfortable to let me know, and that no matter what she does or doesn’t feel like doing (wedding related) that you just love her!

Just let her know that you are going dress shopping on X Day and would like for her to come. I was a broken engagement too and yes it takes time to get over and was hard to see my girlfriends get engaged and married. But I sucked it up and put a smile on my face and did my part. Your daughter will too.

Aww, i feel horrible for your daughter. I had a broken engagement a long time ago. She loves you and will always love you and I’m sure she will do anything to make you happy, just be sure to be extra sensitive with her.
I hope all goes well.
