- Wedding: May 2012
Ahh where to start?! My FH comes from a very large and close family. I come from a smaller but very close family. We struggle all the time with balancing the two to keep the piece. My SIL planned my bridal shower from top to bottom. She did mostly because my other bridesmaids were unwilling to help. The two family members that are in the wedding are busy with school and a new baby so I understand. In my family I usually am the one who handles everything for everyone when it comes to party planning so this was a new change for me. Now my SIL planned a bachlorette party. She only invited the bridal party and HER family. I have found out recently that my family feels as though they are all left out and this wedding is about my FH’s side of the family. I don’t know what to do. I am so overwhelmed with the wedding (Im doing everything myself) and my job which demands most of my time. I am hurt that they are upset, but honestly I feel like for once I need to be selfish and concentrate on myself. My family has always been really close with my FH and I feel like this has created a wedge inbetween them. I need some advice!!!
