Throughout the planning process, my fiance and I have been dealing with bumps in the road--some little, some not so small--like everyone else does. The only thing is, most of those bumps have my mother in common.
She was slow in giving us addresses for her side of the guest list until we gave a firm deadline, she became upset with me when I asked her not to wear white(I did tell her cream was fine, or ivory--just not WHITE white, you know?), and she got mad and told me to cancel a slideshow she asked for when I reminded her I needed the photos she hadn't scanned yet... Yeesh.
I'm at a loss as to why my mother is acting this way! She's always been more on the passive-aggressive side, which is confusing to me because I'm more direct, but I haven't picked up on anything that at all suggests she disapproves of the marriage. In fact, when my fiance asked for their blessing, he says she was beside herself with happiness!
My fiance thinks it's the realization that I don't need my parents(in terms of reliance) anymore that's making her resistant. I'm left wondering if I'm continually doing something to offend her. I don't know how to delicately bring it up, either, without it seeming accusatory. I love my mother, but I don't like this behavior! Thoughts?
