Who paid for your dress
Posted 22 June 2010 - 10:17 PM
This past weekend I bought my dress. I made a point to wait till my mom was here to get it. Please let me know if I am being old fashioned but I was surprised and hurt that my mom didn't want to have anything to do with paying for my dress. Let me clarify, my dad passed away 2 years ago and my mom has more than enough money, so that is not a factor. We are doing a DW mostly because I know that my emotions will be a mess. I really hoped that my mom would want to do something special for me or sentimental for my wedding. I just get the impression that she is not supporting us. I know our wedding is still a ways away but what do you think

I think the best way to handle this is to talk to your mom. Nothing will be resolved by assuming and not talking about it. Old fashinioned or not, she may surprise you. Just talk it out and make it point that you need to nail down your budget and you don't want to take anything for granted...

I think you should talk to your mom. She could have been planning to give you jewelry, or contribute in some other sentimental way but you won't know until you sit down and have a heart to heart.

It is a tuff spot, part of me feels bad cause my FI parents have helped us out so much. I should talk to her but I don't want her to feel that by me bringing it up she has to help out. I am also glad that I did buy my dress, my mom was not sure about the TTD so this way it is my purchase. Guess I will sit back and see what happens, no matter what we will have a wonderful wedding !!!

Maybe if you talk to your mom, she will be giving on your actual wedding day!
