I had a similar situation for my wedding. Roughly 80 guests, mostly his family. Received 4 cards and 2 gifts. Two of his sister’s were over heard by other guests sayin to their kids “okay, we ate, time to leave.” His family made it seem more like our wedding was a pit stop rather than a celebration. None of his family came to me and said welcome to the family. No hugs or love of any kind. One sister left directly after the ceremony because it was her husbands birthday and they had plans. He is extremely hurt by he whole situation and hasn’t spoken to them since. 

Given the fact DH and I have been together for 6 years and have an almost two year old maybe they felt our wedding wasn’t that big if a deal, but it was. It was to DH, it was to me. We have heard nothing from them. No calls, no messages, nothing. Like it never even happened. Neither one of uno know what the issue was but it seems they were not as welcoming of me as I had thought. We have spent numerous holidays with them, birthdays, and just normal family get-together s  but for some reason me legally joining the family was not worth their time or effort. None of them even got us a card to say congrats. 

Im sorry you are dealing with this, I’ve been there and it sucks.

That sucks. I can’t stand children and if that had happened at my wedding I would have probably drop kicked them all over a wall or something, so well done for not doing that! 🙂

The gift thing sucks too. I’m worried that my guests will be the same and not have a clue about what is appropriate at a wedding and do something similar. I think things like this are more common in the UK for some reason.

But still, once it’s all said and done, you got married. Congratulations 🙂

Oh my god, that sounds like a nightmare. 🙁 I completely understand why people want to have childfree weddings–we did invite children, but when FI’s stepmom wanted us to invite her sisters, I was terrified about inviting her nephew, who is a little brat because NO ONE ever tells him no. He spent a recent family function kicking and stealing from other kids and kicking several adults. No one said a word, and then he cried because no one wanted to play with him. 

And, apparently, some people think that weddings are free for alls. Ugh ugh ugh.

The parents need a good swift kick. At least you can say the day was “memorable” Undecided

I know it’s still fresh and all- but trust me— it won’t be important in a few months. 

My wedding was a nightmare …. I’m not trying to sound unsympathetic…. Just saying— in time you’ll only remember the good stuff- I only remember the annoying bad stuff if I Try to think about it.
