I planned my wedding alone, it sucked and really wasn’t any fun. I was stressed, I cried, but i made it through as you will.

It sounds like you’ve got to get yourself into a happier place all around. Remember this wedding is supposed to be about you and your fiance. So do what makes you happy. Stop expecting other people to care, cuz when you expect that you’ll end up dissapointed and hurt.

You may be physically alone but you have all of us virtual bees to help you.  

I want to tell you a little story… I am also a larger bride.  The first time I stepped into a bridal salon I was scared.  I just looked.  Did that about 3 times.  Finally my Love was with me and we went into a specialty plus size salon.  The size 32 wouldn’t even close on me.  Talk about mortifying.   Since then fortunately I had weight loss surgery so I will soon be shopping for a gown.  I am still just as scared to go back and try anything on.  You can do all of this.  This will be your day and when you are done you will look back with so much has pride at you accomplished on your own.  

 

Feel free to message me any time.

🙁 I’m sorry about that but honestly, if none of my family were happy for me or seemed interested in being involved, I would take all my wedding money and either a) do a DW with the few people who realky care or B) do a courthouse marriage and use the rest of the money for an amazing honeymoon!! I consider doing that about 50% of the time just because of the stress and money but I have too many people who would be super upset and I couldn’t justify it.

My friend however called off her wedding (the party, not the marriage) and decided to do it at the courthouse because nobody supported her marriage (very new relationship, she’s only 23 and he’s in his 30s other issues but he’s not a bad person, just way to fast for some family members) and her mom freaked at the idea of her daughter not having a wedding and ended up footing the entire 20k bill, which mom was not paying for anything originally but friend was of the mindset “why are we breaking the bank for a party for a bunch of people who don’t care” and I agree. if you really want the big wedding go for it but don’t feel like there’s anything wrong with just making the day about you and your FI if none of your friends/family are being supportive! The plus side to having shitty family members is you shouldn’t feel bad doing what makes you happy regardless of their opinion 🙂

caroline.fitzgerald.334:  I am planning my alone and it sucks. Between family issues, my FSIL is getting married a few months before us, and not having friends… I am 100% in the dark. Any more I wish I eloped because I feel like its just not worth it any more.
