Life has to go on.  It’s unpredictable and bad things will happen but this should make you focus on the IMPORTANT reasons you are getting married!  Not worrying about the color of the stupid linens or the way the tables are arranged.  Remember why you want to marry him and be thankful for what you guys have now.  Your dad will be happy for you and I’m sure he wants you to go on with your life and be happy, it’s just a rough time.

Not having family involved in wedding planning can be a blessing. My parents have been pretty hands off, and it’s been great- the wedding is exactly what Fiance and I want. vs. someone else’s party.

Sorry that you’re dealing with these family issues- when it comes closer to the day, people will be excited for you. (It’s almost impossible for anyone other than you and Fiance to maintain that level of interest for over a year)

Bat sh** crazy relatives is all I have ever known girl. I feel ya. Just dont include any of them in the wedding party. My Fiance and I decided that to keep the peace we would not have any family in the wedding party only friends. His family is normal. Mine isnt. You would have to read my embarassed family rant to understand.

Another bee gave me some good advice. Treat them like children. Make sure the ceremony isnt long, the reception is short so that they dont have alot of time to lose their attention and wreck your wedding. Another bee suggested an elopement to somewhere and have a reception after you come back.


Sandals is offering a free wedding when you purchase 6 days in one of their resorts.


Good luck and hugs

Just think of your situation of the first of many where its you and your Fiance against the world! Most times others won’t be there for us and you have to be your own best friend…it totally sucks sometimes, but one person you should always be there to count on is you!

I’ve been going through similar drama so I know how deserted you may feel right now…you see all of these movies where people are fawning over the bride, and are so excited for you, when in reality this is usually far from the truth…just keep your head up, allow your trials to strengthen your relationship, and do something nice for yourself! go get a pedicure, hire a wedding planner…or just do a movie night w. your hubby to be and realize how lucky you are that you found someone else with the same goals in life…that loves you! <3
