    • Your daughter or the new daughter-in-law?

      As mother of the groom, I’d probably just keep my mouth shut.

    • Try to figure out what is behind her behavior. Of course, it could just be hormones. Good luck and I  hope you have a speedy resolution.

    • it’s my daughter-dil is doing better than better. I thought dd would adjust.  she’s used to being in charge and being close by-now she’s 300 miles away and she’s a bride’s maid, not matron of honor and not in charge of any part of things.  she hates that.  I told her to “put on your shiny happy smiley face and suck it up.”
      Twice.
      I hate wedding drama.

    • I agree, give her something to do such as the bridal shower.

    • the maid of honor is doing the bridal shower.  she offered to help, if fact so did I, my sister and my mom-she said if she needs us, she’ll let us know.
      my way of thinking-I offered, I’d like to be involved, but she’s the one in charge, so I just said okay.

      dd is too far away to do a 2nd shower.  she offered to plan the girls night out-the maid of honor said she was doing all of that too.

      she’s just going to have to back off

    • Type “A” personalities don’t do well NOT running things. With her physical distance, girlfriend could be feeling a bit threatened by a new “female” joining the family, and you being so happy about d-i-l and telling her to “suck it up” could actually be making it worse. It’s a thought!)

      How about a surprise visit for some much needed attention?
      That’s what I do for my moody, type “A” daughter.happy  We skip school, and spend those 7 hours out together until time to pick up the “normal” ones from school.

    • dd is coming out w/1 of the grandkids for our anniversary.  I’m going on a cruise w/ her the week after the wedding.  she is jealous of the fact that dil is so close by.

      and thank you for pointing out the one thing I didn’t think of which is that my telling her to suck it up might be making it worse-could very well be! but what else can I tell her?

      and there is no bridal luncheon.

    • Yes, definitely jealous.  But, that’s okay.  Annoying, but, valid nonetheless.

      I know, we just want THEM all to know what WE already know in our wisdom, (“Get over it!“) but, they are still “kids.”  Right?

      How about calling her everyday with the play-by-play of the days’ happenings about all the planning and asking for her suggestions and opinions?  (grab a LARGE cup of coffee and be prepared to listen).  You are going to learn soooo much and hopefully, it’ll get easier for her to deal.
