Why couldn’t you invite your best friend from HS?  Or other friends? I only ask because you are saying you’re lonely, but it sounds like you do still have friends…

Yeah, I understand what you’re saying.  It’s such an important and happy time in your lives, so it would just be nice to know that others feel the same and are happy for you.  Congratulations 🙂

yogahhh:  i think you need to be more active less passive. why can’t you say to your parents ‘fi and i would love to all meet for dinner at x to celebrate with you’ and see what happens?

and why can’t you call your friend and say ‘i haven’t seen you since the engagement, let’s get manicures and talk wedding stuff on sat’ (or whatever you want to do – maybe a double date with your fis?)

yogahhh:  I hear you. I’m in a very similar situation. We are doing a very small wedding with just our parents (and FIs brother and sister) as well. I honestly have no desire for showers or bachellorette parties because there would only be like 2 people that I could invite. FI has lots of friends, but I just moved to this state a couple years ago and I pretty much only see my 3 coworkers during the day and they’re my only friends. I don’t really have any advice for you other than if you want to celebrate, have your own event/dinner/whatever.

I’m a bit of a social hermit, so I get what you’re saying. If you’re feeling isolated, there’s nothing wrong with planning things to do with your friends. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there to broaden and maintain the social network.
