Difficult Mum/Daughter Relationship
So....me and my fiancé got engaged last July and booked our wedding in September. Everyone’s been super excited for us, except for my mother and her husband. When I told her I got a “oh that’s nice”, she’s not asked me a thing about the wedding and I’ve even gone and picked my dress alone, because I can’t wait around. I’m her only daughter, so it’s a bit strange, my MIL is so happy for us and has taken an interest, even came with us to book it and went out for dinner to celebrate. I couldn’t imagine doing that with my mum. She has always acted strangely whenever I have celebrated something, such as my 18th, 21st and 30th. I find it quite odd and I’m ashamed about it. Now I’m panicking about the wedding itself because my mum has a habit of ruining special occasions by sometimes having too much to drink and causing a scene. She did this to her best friends daughters wedding. I just want to see if anybody else out there is trying to navigate and plan a wedding, with a fractured mother/daughter relationship?
