I know that problems with mothers are a very common issue when planning a wedding but I'm starting to really be offended and hurt by my mother's actions. I am my mom's only child and I know she has looked forward to helping me plan my wedding for a while now. However, everything I have chosen my mom has criticized. I chose satin tea length bidesmaid dresses...she said my wedding pictures won't look nice. We took engagement photos and she didn't like those because we didn't dress up. We wore jeans. She was unbearable while shopping for a dress. The consultant was about to kick her out because she was so frustrated with my mom. The biggest issue is that my FI and I plan to have dancing and alcohol, mainly wine and champagne at our wedding reception. My mom is a conservative Christian. I am also a Christian but believe that having a drink once and a while is not bad as long as it is not done in abundance. She has told me that she is disappointed in me and that I am going down the wrong path just for wanting champagne at my wedding reception. I have told her that she does not have to drink or dance but I would appreciate her support. She seems to think that by supporting me will cause her to miss Heaven. On top of all of this, we have been looking for a mother of the bride dress. She doesn't know much about computers and the internet but she found some dresses she liked on this website that looks like a scam. I showed her some really bad reviews that I found on google and told her not to order a dress from there. Well, come to find out that two days after I showed those reviews to her she not only ordered one dress but TWO DRESSES and they are both ugly and not appropriate. One is a long tulle gown which is almost as dressy as mine. It is just tacky and the other looks like a dress you would buy at Walmart. Nothing against Walmart but $328 is a bit much to spend on something of that quality. I asked my mother if she found a dress and she flat out told me that she did not and and would not have the money till November to buy a dress. She flat out lied to me and when I confronted her about it she would not admit that she lied. I just find it so disrespectful that my mother would do something that I specifically asked her not to for my wedding. I'm just hurt by all of her comments and her lies.I just don't know what to do at this point. I want to enjoy this whole process and I want to share it with my mother. I would love any advice anyone can give me on this subject! Thank you!!
