me! my mother has been amazing in every way possible, helping make my dreams come true to some aspect even if I couldn’t have the full shabang.  She’s also been amazing at including making sure my unsure FMIL feels good about things and includes her in the little things that she might not have been included in if I was doing it all myself (teehee).

MY MOM IS AMAZING!! She took to wedding planning like a duck in water. She missed out on it with my older sister so I think she is enjoying it now. My parents have both been great, my dad went with us when we booked the venue and surprisingly really got into it. Although they have been great my whole life, they bend over backwards to help us out when we need it (not just physical things but emotional and mental support).

I love my mom so much!!! She is never difficult to deal with! As far as wedding planning goes, she’s been awesome. It’s definitely a plus that she’s super crafty so she’ll be helping me with a lot of my DIY projects πŸ™‚

I have to say when I got engaged I totally expected my mother to be very demanding and hard to deal with but I have been pleasantly surprised.  She has been so great and helpful. A lot like yours Miss-Spunkin.

She only asked that two of her friends be invited and has been very supportive of who I have chosen not to invite (some family members that I’m not close with).  All in All she has been amazing and has tried throughout this whole process to keep me calm and as stress-free as possible and I can’t thank her enough for it.

Me too! My mom came with us to look at venues, went dress shopping with me (and surprised me by paying for my dress!) and is super excited by all aspects of wedding planning. She is halping me research DIY centerpieces for us to work on together and told me “I have been waiting my whole life for this.” My mother is the sweetest woman in the world and I am so grateful to have her in my life.

While my mom has had her share of Momzilla moments, I adore her and she helps out all of the time.

My mom is so awesome!!! teehee actually, both my Future Mother-In-Law and my mom are just awesome in general, but both have been great about the wedding.

Both basically said “you are adults, it’s YOUR wedding” and haven’t tried to momzilla in and steal my thunder. We’ve only had to deal with a little bit of crazy from relatives so far, and both mom’s have handled the relatives themselves, so that FH and I didn’t have to (thank God!!)

She also has done lots of research online for me, and is always up for DIY projects or for looking for ideas for me.

@sjones – Lol!! Moral support is great too though eh? πŸ™‚ (sorry, I’m Canadian, I can’t help it with the eh)

@miss-spunkin – My mom doesn’t have a room but she fills their house lol. She has her own wedding cake business (score!), she quilts, knits, crochets, sews… she just recently did roman shades for my entire house!! It’s insane. I didn’t inherit any of these traits from her LOL.
