I just have to say that I can’t believe she said that to you at your mother’s FUNERAL! Way to make it all about yourself, lady. I’m so sorry. Definitely don’t feel obligated to include anyone more than you want to, just because they don’t understand boundaries.

You are in NO way obligated to include anyone in any of your wedding prep! If she causes drama, that’s on her because she is essentially trying to TAKE ADVANTAGE of the fact that your mom isn’t around. Personally, I simply haven’t called my aunt when there was something to do. If she wants to pout about it, let her. If she actually says something (or, more likely, my uncle calls me) I plan to say “I know she’s trying to fill a void since my mom isn’t with me, but I honestly feel it’s better for me emotionally to do it without a “mother figure” if Mom can’t be there with me”. And if anyone wants to argue with me about that- fuck ’em.

swampdill:  Maybe the way your aunt is treating you is the reason she isn’t included in her own daughter’s wedding. Just a thought, I could be wrong. I’m experiencing some of the same behavior with my own mom.
