So, my mom wants to invite everyone she has ever known or met to our wedding! I'm exaggerating a little, but really...I'm not! Our guest list is getting out of control. She is inviting wayyy more friends than me and FI! How do I get her to invite less people or only the important people (or at least people I know/or met before)?! This conversation/argument is going to piss her off and I know I won't win but I'm not even kidding you guys, she's the one person who doesn't care that I'm the bride! She doesn't listen to me! Should I just let her do what she wants because 75% of the wedding funding is coming from her wallet?!
But seriously, our wedding is one big party for her to "show off" to everyone. She's even inviting ALL of our co-workers in our department (so, including their spouses, will be 40 extra people). My mom and I work in the same department...can you understand why I'm going insane now?!
Unfortunately, my mother and I are not speaking and have not been for a few weeks now. I have very cold feelings toward her because of the way she treats me and has been acting towards me and my wedding. To tell you the truth, we have a terrible relationship and it has been rocky for many years.
I don't even want her in my bridal suite or near me at all on my wedding day because I know she will upset me. I will NEVER forgive her if she makes me cry on my wedding day! Anyway, sorry to get into all of the drama. But y'all should know some of the gist of what has been going on with me and my momzilla. (Yep, that's what I've been referring her as.)
It has gotten to the point now that I have cut her out completely of the wedding planning process. I used to ask her opinions here and there but she argues with me about EVERYTHING and always makes me cry. I've had to cut my aunt (her older sister) out as well too. No family members were there the day I picked out and bought my wedding dress because they ruined the first appointment. So, I just had my bridal party at the 2nd appointment, which happened to be the day that I found my dress. My mom still hasn't seen my dress in person. I have planned this ENTIRE wedding by myself. I am not even kidding. Y'all should see my spreadsheets.
It's so sad that what should be the happiest time in my life has been ruined by my family but mainly my own mother. My FI and I have threatened to elope many times. We already have our honeymoon booked so we just want to fly to St. Lucia and get married by ourselves. But unfortunately, I've already paid for too many deposits to back out now.
And that's my sad little story. Sorry, needed to vent. NOBODY knows any of this except for my wonderful fiance.
Can anyone relate???
