My family is really big. Around 85 of them were invited to the wedding. I thought around 50 or 60 of them would attend. Our venue was pretty small so we didn’t invite some of our friends and hardly any of our coworkers to accommodate my huge family. About 20 came. 20. I’m really hurt by this.
I have always been really shy around my family because they all made fun of me a lot when I was growing up. I’m a grown woman now but I’m still very shy/quiet around them. They take this as me being bitchy. My sister on the other hand has always been super bubbly, social butterfly. They all love her. I know they like her more than me. That’s fine. When she got married, they were all there. Hardly any of them showed up for me and we always get together for family events. I’m just hurt. It’s really making me not want to have anything to do with them anymore.
I just needed to get this off my chest because I have no one to share this with.

@Loubride: ((Hugs)) I’m so sorry honey. If it were just a few here and there, I would be more willing to think that it was unforseen circumstances or difficulties. However, with such a huge chunk…wow, that’s an awful thing to experience. Well poop on them! You are married to your love, and they were the ones to miss out on that beautiful experience. Congratulations on your marriage 🙂

I’m sorry this happened to you. *Big hugs* Maybe it’s time to create an adopted family of your friends and people around that care about you and are there for you.

I’m sorry this happened. Did they RSVP no? Did they give any reasons as to why they didn’t come??

@Loubride: I had one..count ’em..one uncle from my dad’s side of the family and ONE cousin show up to my wedding. So I totally feel your pain. It made me all the more thankful for my friends. At least they could muster the inclination to put on some pants and show up.
Sorry it happened to you too. Families suck sometimes.
