My mum is taking over my wedding!
My mother is taking over my whole wedding and I just want to scream! Her and my fiancé are very similar and butt heads all the time.
She thinks because her and my dad are paying the majority for the wedding (her decision, she wanted to) she decides everything. She keeps making comments like, "He has no say in anything, he just turns up on the day".
My fiancé and mum are both very stubborn and my fiancé has said things I do not agree with, however, I do not agree with my mother saying he has no say in anything - for example the suits!! Of course he has a say in the suits, is she mad!
We went to our venue's open day at the weekend and booked an appointment with a florist, on a Saturday. My mum immediately went mad when I told her and said, oh so HE'LL be there. Of course he's going to be there it's OUR wedding. I asked my fiancé to ask my mum if she wanted to come with us (I already had but she turned her nose up) and she did the same when he asked her. THEN she had the cheek to turn around and say how dare he ask if she wanted to come to the florist.
I feel like ripping my hair out and crying. I've spoken to my fiancé and he said all he wants is for me to be happy and that it's too much aggrovation to argue so he'll go along with everything - but I want him to be involved.
I feel like my mother is acting like a spoiled child and throws her toys out of the pram any time she doesn't get her way. She keeps making snidey comments about my fiancé and his behaviour and how him making decisions in the wedding is the start of him controlling my life and how she doesn't think I should be marrying him.
You'd think all my mother would want is for me to be happy..but clearly not. I feel like it's her wedding and not my fiancé's and mine.
Sorry for the lengthy post, any advice would be appredicated!
A very stressed out bride-to-be. Xx
