@LeBonbon:  my mom was SO  against me marrying. She used to hung up on me and stuff. I was this close to having aw edding with out her. But, thankfully, we could talk and things got much better, she gave me this for christmas.


I know it seems impossible now. Believe me, I thought it was. But love conquers it all I guess. Even though people are stubborn.

My advice is for you to keep doing your part, invite her, try to make her a part of this. At the end of the day it will be her choice. I know it hurts and it would be so much easier to just run the other way and forget about everything. But when you gotta fight, you gotta fight.


hugs for you :))))

2 days before our wedding a man in his late 30s decided to act like a 16 year old and and started telling my father in law rumours and lies about our relationship. A big one he said was that DH had recently slept with his best man (a girl, who has actually been my friend since we were 6). Because of this my mother in law threatened to not come to our wedding if this friend of ours was there. We were stubborn and refused to uninvite our friend.  In the end MIL did come, but it still cast a huge shadow over the day.

I don’t really know what advice to give you, but I honestly hope that your parents change their minds and come.

My father and I haven’t had a good relationship my whole life. Ever since I was little, I’ve always dreamed of the perfect wedding. It was perfect in my mind, only cos he wasn’t there. Flash forward to today. My father and I aren’t speaking, and he didn’t attend my wedding. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
