- Wedding: August 2013
So I don’t know what to do. My husband and I recently eloped (nov2012) and now were planning a ceremony and reception to include our families. Well when we went to my family’s house for thanksgiving to share the news, no one on my family really was that enthusiastiC. I’m the youngest of four girls from a Eastern European family immigrated to the states, (I was born in America.) now trying to plan everything (100 guests, August 24 2013 date) I’m getting so overwhelmed. My sisters all are 10+ year older than me, they have children and lives of their own (parents are well into their 60s.) I recently had girlfriends in my life screw me over so I don’t really have any bridesmaids or any girlfriends to hell me. it feel like I am alone on this (my man isn’t really interested, he keeps telling me he doesn’t really know what he’s doing) I’m about to cancel this wedding and say I’m over it and give up. I mean the only reason why I’m planning this wedding is to have my family and my husbands family (they are all in Virginia so I have no support from in laws, plus I never met them) to come together and meet. But if my family isn’t really into it, then why should I? Currently I’m dealing with Manic Depression Disorder and bipolarII, my emotions are on overload every time I think about wedding planning. it doesn’t even feel like my father cares about walking me down the Aisle. I’m his last born, I feel like its more sentimental to me than him. It’s bad enough while I’m planning my wedding I’m finding out who my true friends are so I don’t invite them, (now I’m down to family attending the wedding) I honestly don’t want to give up because I know my man wants to have a wedding of his own…i don’t want him to regret marrying me.
