I can’t commiserate on what you are going through, cuz both sides of the family were nothing but helpful.  Maybe she is jealous?

You could ask her point blanh why she is being that way

my mom isn’t into my wedding either. at all. 

so I just don’t talk about it with her….sucks, but eh. its my life (and has been for a really long time), and I can’t expect her to be into something she’s not a fan of in general.

I won’t lie though, it’s been nice to have an aunt (also my godmother) to be at least halfway excited for me.

OMG. Do we have the same mother? Seriously. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not engaged yet but it’s getting close and I was once years ago. But my mom has behaved and is currently behaving just like yours. It’s to the point where I’m currently trying to figure out what exactly I want to say when I confront her this week. Because it’s absolutely confusing. I’m nothing but responsible, successful, mature and yet I can’t do anything right, especially when it concerns my healthy relationship. If you talk to her soon, please, update us, if you feel like it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m just curious as to why she is treating you like this. Sorry you’re having a rough time. Hope things look up soon.

I am sorry ๐Ÿ™ My mother is not supportive either. Everytime I try talking to her about wedding stuff she says “I don’t feel like talking about that right now” or she just changes the subject to her problems…

I’m so sorry ๐Ÿ™  I don’t have any suggestions, but I sympathize and empathize.  I cried for an hour this past weekend when someone said my mother must be so excited after they found out I’m engaged.  She couldn’t be much less supportive if she tried and as much as I try to tell myself it doesn’t matter, it hurts ๐Ÿ™

@KeenNeoGeo: Absolutely, include your Future Mother-In-Law if she is into it!! It will help bring you closer, and maybe also help your mom get involved…

My Mother-In-Law was all about our wedding, and since our parents are all friends, it worked out wonderfully. If only my husband’s mother wasn’t in the picture…
