I have been stressed out over wedding planning. I am an over 40 bride planning my wedding out of state. My fiancé and my family live in the city in which we are getting married. I have been doing everything online or traveling to my hometown to meet with photographers, select venue, etc. When I told her what type of wedding I wanted when I first got engaged, she critiqued everything that I said. I then just planned on my own. However, my parents recently gave me money towards the wedding.
My mother was not speaking to me a few weeks ago because I said that I wanted to be in charge of the wedding planning. This does not mean I didn't want her help. When we did start speaking, she told me that she will not be attending my wedding since I was doing the planning. I thought that she would get over it, but she hasn't. She asked me not to send invitations to her friends, since she was not in charge of the planning. I did anyway thinking she would see that I am sorry for everything. My mother was furious and said that she was "through" with me.
I have tried to talk to her, but they won't take my apologies. Has anyone been in this situation? What did you do?
