Let's see....where to begin....
My mom wants to wear cream TO MY WEDDING. I was talking to her about mob dresses and that I'd like for her to wear a different shade of the color I pick for the bridesmaids. I was going to pick purple, but when I found that the majority of people in the wedding party wanted to wear blue, I decided not to fight it. They are going to be the ones wearing it after-all and I want people to be comfortable.
I was telling my mom that I wanted it to be this color and that I'm flexible within this color family and she instead focused on the darkest color and said it was a winter color (the wedding is in August) and then proceeded to tell me that I can't tell her what to wear and that she's going to wear cream.
Am I out of line for wanting her to wear something from a a specific color family? I thought I was being pretty damn flexible. I want this to be fun, and she's making it more stressful than it needs to be.
The other stuff are things like, "Really you want that? That looks like something from that show Portlandia (we live in Portland)." or Making a suggestion, me following it because I think it's a good idea, and then her freaking out about me doing it and saying it's a mistake.
I've dealt with her like this a lot, so I know it shouldn't be a huge shock, but I hoped that she woukd cool it for a bit. I'm not looking for advice necessarily on here, but I needed to vent and would like some validation if possible so I know I'm not totally losing my mind.
