Take a deep breath and keep reminding yourself: you did the right thing.

If your mother insists on acting like this and throwing a temper tantrum, it will only reflect poorly on her.  She is an adult and should be treated as one.  You do not need to coddle her, so stop feeling guilty Smile.

Keep going on the same path you have been going on.  You cannot make everyone happy: you can only make yourself and your Fiance happy.  Concentrate on making decisions based on what you want and what would make you comfortable.  It’s on the rest of the family to fall into line behind it.

Let her blow off some steam and avoid her for now. Your shower is in a couple of days, you should be enjoying your time and enjoying that day. I can understand how you feel, though. My family basically imploded on Chrismas mornin and my wedding is on Saturday. If she won’t be reasonable, let her stew on her crazy island for now. If you want to make sure she’s still coming to the shower, you can either ask or have the hostess ask her.

As far as eloping, if that’s what will make you happiest, you should do that. I can tell you from experience it’s a hard choice, but a balancing act. For us, I think we would have been saner had we eloped (I’ve been sitting here since Christmas morning having a mild anxiety attack over whether my mom and brother can behave themselves, plus trying to coordinate travel and places to stay, as they’re all Out of Town and there are things that need to be done). But we also have a lot of people who have come into town from far away to see us get married, and that’s why we didn’t cancel. But today, I’m still wondering if it was such a good idea… lol

@futuremrsndl:  PP who used the word “tantrum” is completely correct, and you should not feed into it when she throws one. It sounds like your sister lays down the “this is unacceptable and immature” law with your mom – I suggest you do the same. When she calls you and starts ranting, tell her this decision has been made, and isn’t up for review. Then get off the phone.
