It sounds like your mother is jealous of you and all the attention you are getting. This is why she is being so rude and ridiculous. My heart goes out to you. All you can do is try to keep your mother uninvolved if that is truly what she wants. 

I have a nasty mom too. To her credit, she has improved greatly since I eloped when I got married. Being cut out of her only daughter’s wedding was a wake up call for her. My mother was insulting and controlling when I was engaged. I grew weary of the tantrums in front of my husband, the way she tried to make my wedding all about her wishes and the insults. She refused to go wedding dress shopping with me or throw an engagement party. Her loss because now she is full of regret and not only for her nonsense when I was engaged…she was terrible to me growing up as well. 

I noticed that you called your mother’s vow renewal a Pretty Princess Day. I hope that you did not say this to your mother because if you did, she may have been hurt by that comment and could be reacting based on her pain. I know that not everyone sees the point of vow renewals but they are meaningful for the couple. I am not accusing you of insulting your mother’s ceremony…just not sure if you used that terminology to her face.
