- Wedding: January 2012
I’m so hurt and I just don’t know how to deal with it. Let me apologize first if I ramble I just can’t get a clear head right now.
My wedding is in a few months and to say my family has been less than involved would be an understatement. I have a very large family and have been to so many family weddings with 300-400 people with everyone doing everything possible to attend. I’ve even been to family baby showers, birthday parties, etc with almost 100 people. So my bridal shower is next weekend and out of the 35 invites 5 yes 5 people from my family are attending so this makes a total of 10 people. We were expecting 40. To top it all off my Maid/Matron of Honor got calls from some of my cousins saying they probably won’t be able to make it to the wedding either. WTH?? The invites haven’t even been sent yet.
I just feel so stupid we made adjustments to our wedding planning to accomidate some of my cousins since they have large families and now they say they aren’t coming. One of the cousins&kids who stated they aren’t coming said her sisters weren’t coming eaither. So with just that family we are expecting 15 less people to the wedding.What if we end up with only 50 people at this big venue. I’ll feel so crappy on my special day.
I just don’t understand why they make an effort for everyone else in the family but not for me. Its not just the wedding and shower I;m hurt about. They don’t come to my kids birthday parties, holiday parties just basically anything that I put on. But if someone else freakin sneezed they are all there with a damn tissue.
Is there something wrong with me? Why can’t they make the effort? I just want to cancel the whole thing and elope like we planned but it’s just so close and we’ve already deposited 10k.
