I am so sorry you had to go through this 🙁 (((((((HUGS)))))))))))
If I were you, if you wanted to that is, later down the line do a vow renewal and maybe another reception to celebrate, and either make it clear to your mother that she can’t have any say in anything, or just don’t let her know about it and don’t invite her.
I know that might sound harsh, but IMO she doesn’t deserve to go if you do decide on it. I would have flipped if my mother did that to me. I’m so sorry again, but I am glad to see that you do see the important aspect of everything, being married to your husband.
Best of luck for you and your husband and I hope you feel better soon!

I first saw your topic about your wedding pictures and then I fond this. I am so sorry that your mother did that to you. YOur pictures are beautiful and you were a beautiful bride! Congratulations on your 4 month anniversary the other day as well ;-). You say you stop people speaking about your wedding because you get upset when they bring it up. Maybe now you were ready enough to post your pictures, you could start asking your friends to tell you and explain to you one detail of your wedding that they loved. It may help to hear about something you may have missed because you were preoccupied with your mother’s cruel actions.

@Cariad:That is a really good idea!
Also I agree with doing a vow renewal, but just for you and your hubby. Some places have AMAZING elopement packages…head off on a carribean vacation or romatic trip to europe and have a ceremony just you, Darling Husband, an officiant and a photog. Hopefully by that point you can just lounge with your husband in a hammock by the ocean (or on a furry rug by a fireplace) and laugh at how rediculous your mother acted.

I can’t think of anything to say that PP’s haven’t already covered, but I am **SO, SO** sorry that that happened to you. I’m in the middle of planning and I know the work and thought and expectations that go into it, and I almost cried because I could feel your devastation.
But, like you said, you have an awesome husband now, and say in 5 years, you could throw a kick @ss anniversary party/vow renewal that’s all about you guys. I’ve learned so much about how NOT to be when my daughter plans her wedding one day! (hugs)
