    I would suggest that in the name of harmony before the wedding you just suck it up and make contact with your mom. She is never going to change, so you will have to take her as she is.

    I would just phone her and tell her that the two of you need to make an appt for a dress fitting and you are calling to see when she is available. If she blows up at you and won’t go or gives you any indication that she will not be paying for the dress, then you will know where you stand.

    She may just be too proud to call you and waiting for you to make contact.

    I agree with julies1949: try to contact her once about the dress and if she doesn’t react well, go with dress one.

    Good luck! I’m sorry you’re having such a difficult time!

    I agree with PP.  It is clear that you love the 2nd dress more that your mom put the payment on.  I would just call her up and try to make amends so you can try to be on better terms with your mom before your wedding AND wear the dress of your dreams!

    Good luck!

    I work in the same building and we carpool together. I have been having this same battle for months. My mom had to have things a certain way and since she was paying for htem that is the way it is. Whenever I tell her no she throws it in my face that she does not have to give me the money and to hell with this wedding anyway. So I feel your pain!

    @SleepingWithNuns: That is how ours was in the beginning. Then since she decided to help us it grew and grew. Now she is having problems coming up with the money and it is my fault. Because she wanted fancy linens and real china and everythign to “look nice”. I was happy with plastic tablecloths and plates…lol.
