hey girl, sorry to hear. I’m kinda in the same boat. I know my mom loves my fiancé, in fact, sometimes she’s nicer to him than to me. But I have the typical, Chinese, “tiger” mom. Everything I do isn’t good enough. I don’t know if my mother hates the idea of a wedding or something, cuz she never got one, but I’ve been trying to involve her in the planning process and she seems uninterested. Shes always busy with work or going to the temple, or something. I actually had to book her 3 weeks in advance to go dress shopping with me. And when I show her pictures (some of me, since I’ve started shopping with my MOH), all she would tell me is that I need to exercise or why am I even spending so much money on a dress I will only wear once. I wish i had a more supportive mother and not a critical one. But I guess she thinks she’s trying to be motivating and wants what’s “good” for me, except she doesn’t know or care what I want. And don’t even bother trying to talk to her about, she just tells me I’m being too sensitive. I’m over it. I’ll try and do what I feel is right, I can only control what I do and feel, I can’t control her reactions and behavior. Just live with it! And vent here with fellow brides with mama drama! 🙂

My mom is the same thing. The only reason she’s throwing me a shower is because my aunts are pushing her to. 

I just don’t talk wedding with her, ever. She has no idea what I’m planning or what my dress looks like or anything. yeah, its sad, but there’s nothing you can do about it. 

I’m not sad that she’s like this; I’m sad that she’s missing out on an important part of her childs life because she’s an idiot. Ah well.
