Mum won't come to the wedding!
My fiancee and I have been together for 5 years, lived together for over a year, been engaged for 2 years in January, and are getting married on Friday 11th August 2017. We haven't ever got married before so everything was new for us. We went to look at the Church we knew we wanted to get married at and booked the date. We then went to see a few potential wedding venues and picked and booked one!
It then came to telling our parents, his parents were over the moon, whereas mine have taken it very badly.
My Mum and Dad didn't speak to me for about 3 months, and said that they felt that we weren't involving them. I have apologised but they now refuse to talk about it, unless it is an argument.
I only have a small family, whereas my fiancées has a larger family - I can see how this could be an issue, but we did consider this. It doesn't help as my parents have only ever met up with his parents once, as they have been very stubborn throughout our relationship. At one point, they said they wouldn't be coming at all!
We cancelled our wedding reception, and have now booked it again, but my Mum is refusing to come wedding dress shopping or do anything to do with the wedding full stop.
I know it probably sounds harsh, but I am not cancelling it, as they are doing it for attention and I know it. They don't work properly and have nothing better to gossip about, however it leaves me feeling very torn.
Has anyone had a similar situation, and what did you do please?
