- Wedding: September 2011
Ok, so here goes.
Fiance told me last night that his mom called him and was asking him all these questions. One of which was way my mom isn’t throwing me a bridal shower. Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are convinced that my parents don’t approve of the marriage, that is so far from the truth!
First of all, Future Mother-In-Law is close with her children. Me and my mom just aren’t like that. My mom is a little eccentric (best way to put it) and she’s never really been close with me. She didn’t go with me to buy my dress, and she really has expressed no internest in the wedding. I didn’t expect her to, because like I said we just aren’t that close.
And yes there are many times I do wish I had a more “normal” relationship with her, but it’s really not possible.
My parents aren’t coming to the wedding, which probably looks bad to her too. We are going to Vegas (originally it was just going to be me and Fiance going.. getting married.. then having a recpetion when we got back as a surprise). Well his family found out and then we changed our plans to accomodate them and made it a bigger thing than we originally planned.
My dad has health issues so he can’t travel, and well theres my mom who just isn’t all that interested.
I’m sure it looks so bad to Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law. Fiance tried to explain it, but it’s a hard situation to explain.
I just hope that they don’t end up not approving this marriage 🙁 (Meaning FI’s family)
I just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks for listening.
