@TinkerSofi Thanks for your advice, the flower ceremony is a nice idea, I'll look more into it I've tried to speak to her, it never goes over well. It starts with me speaking, then she gets angry and picks parts of what I said to argue back about, then I sit there quietly until she's done her rant, and it ends. Nothing resolved, because I can't get a word in, she thinks I'm being condescending and treating her like a child. I try to speak really nicely and not raise my voice and she says I think I'm better than her... its a cycle.
I'm making her sound like a monster. She has a really big heart and I love her, but can be very stubborn and sometimes hurtful. My girlfriends know her and have promised to help me out.
I'm sure it will all be okay, just need to be positive I actually fought back a couple tears writing these posts... this is definitely my biggest wedding stress and I can't believe how open I'm being on this forum. Thanks ladies
We all have those moments when our parents get on our nerves a bit but it doesn't mean they're bad people. I had a couple of those last week where I felt like my mom was trying to take over the planning and I kind of lashed out at her a bit. It was mean from my part because she probably didn't even notice that she was doing it. I could have been nicer about it.
Best of luck! At the end of the day I think the "who walks you down the aisle" is a big deal, and you should do what makes you happier, no matter who or how many people protest. However, it is easier said that done, especially when people guilt trip you or act like they're hurt for not doing what they want.
