i am 31 years old and getting married for the second time. I have two little boys (10 and 5). My fiance has never been married and when i married the first time i went to the courthouse and got married in an old prom dress. i had no one there except my parents brother and grandpap.
Since day one my mom has been negative saying "i dont know why you have to have a big (im having 115 people) weddding you have been married. I have tried explaining to her that he hasnt and i never did. it has come to the point where we have made it clear we are paying for it all and we are NOT asing her or anyone else to pay anything.
Heres the problem she seems as if she doesnt care. When i piced out our colors she just ok. When we piced out our invitations she didnt say anything about them. We have gotten other wedding things and she just blows it off. i have told everyone when we are going dress shopping and my sister in law has just had a baby and my mom has volunteered to stay home and watch him since we were making it a girl day.
How do I get her to be happy and want to be involved? or do i just ignorfe it and try to move past it?
