So I got engaged a few weeks ago and getting married next year.
First thing I wanted to sort was my dress - so I took my mum and sister shopping and I was just intending to look but fell in love with the most perfect dress and bought it.
Now I've been a bit obsessed with Don't Tell the Bride lately, and all the mums cry and make such a fuss over the dress. My mum didn't say much at all - she certainly didn't cry. She said something about me looking happy in it and that the dress was lovely but no compliments of me. When we came out she said to my sister "this reminded me of when we went to buy your prom dress". I wonder if my sister said something to her later, because on the phone later she said how stunning it looked on me.
I knew she was going to be like this because she always has been - but I just feel so robbed of feeling special and like a princess. I'm quite shy and not very confident about the way I look and it would just have made me feel so wonderful if she'd actually complimented me.
The other problem is she's so different with my sister - and I just know when it comes to bridesmaid dresses she will make a much bigger fuss over my sister and how she looks than me and my wedding dress!!!
It's not worth saying anything to her as I've tried in the past and I don't want to sound petty, plus if I say something I'll feel she's just saying it because I asked. I am lucky because my dad is lovely and my soon-to-be sisters-in-law are lovely and will make a fuss.
I don't know what the point of this is really as there's nothing I can do -just feeling a bit blue!
