I know EXACTLY how you feel! I just posted about this the other day, actually (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-just-need-to-vent-for-a-minute) I really wish I had some advice for you, but I haven’t even figured out what to do about my own mom!

I’d say that if she’s the type of mom you can talk to about this stuff – do! She may not realize that it’s hurting you. I know, however, that some moms you really just can’t talk to about this (exhibit a: my mom). 

(Hugs) I’m sorry you’re dealing with this!! It’s no fun!

I have a similar problem. My mother and I have always been very close and can and have talked about anything. She loves my fiance and is happy we’re getting married, but she too seems to be emotionally detached. She is unable to donate a single dime financially to our funds, which is why I think she is acting this way. I understand she can’t give any money to help out, but I just want her to be as excited as I am when I discuss plans and details with her.

I know now not to mention how much anything costs because she just ends up making me feel guilty about spending any amount (even when I think I’m being extremely reasonable!) of money on my one special day.

Since you’ve already tried discussing it with your mom, just know that she loves you and try to let it go. Just keep talking about your ideas with friends and family that will share in your joy and excitement! Smile Best of luck!
