My mother was really excited when i told her I was getting Married. I'm pretty sure she cried alittle. (which was expected). but three days later i told her the wedding would be in my home town (North Pole, AK). she completely stopped smiling, and she told me she wasnt going because of where it was. I dont mean she said "i'm sorry. Thats really far, and i dont know if i can afford it." I mean she yelled that I was stupid for having it there, and nobody would go because nobody would care to. I was completely thrown off by her reaction.
Yesterday I got an email from David's Bridal that said the new Vera Wang collection would be out next week (I'm super excited to try on these dresses! my FI knows how excited i am) and she just said "k." and started talking to my brother about Star Trek and some new game.
The first time I asked to look at dresses, she just asked "why?" about 50 times before she agreed to go. and the whole friggin time we were there, she just stared at the wall or floor. She took pictures of the dress after i asked her 10 times to. I asked her if the flowers I chose would look good together, since they'll be silk, and she said "how would I know?" She arranges flowers very well, I just wanted her help alittle. I cant even get her to smile about a friggin flower...
Sooo! Long story short, when my FI comes back down here after he does this work, He says he'll take me back to David's Bridal, because he wants me to be happy, and I'm glad he does, but i want my mother to be part of it too, its looking like she wont be.. At All!
Should I just give up on trying to get her to help me and smile for me, reguardless of where I'll be on the wedding day?
