My family likely wouldn’t have made it, aside from maybe my mom and siblings (but probably not because my mom had gotten laid off before the wedding), but I had the wedding back home so they could join us. Hubby’s family, except his mom and sister, couldn’t make it. We had about 50 people at our wedding. Luckily, I didn’t have to do it all alone and my mom helped a lot. It must be so tough doing all that! But, it will make your wedding even more special because it will have all of those personal touches! I’m sure it will be a beautiful wedding 🙂

Don’t feel too bad. I think that there are more of us do-it-aloners out there than you (we) think. I am in a similar situation (sort of, kind of). My mom and family as well as my fiance’s family live thousands of miles away and aren’t really involved in any of the planning. It’s hard because it feels like no one is interested. I don’t have many close friends so I won’t even be doing bridal showers or a bachelorette party. It’s easy to get wrapped up in what you think a dream wedding should be. Take my advice (from someone who has freaked out multiple times about the whole situation) -be glad for your relationship and the fact that you are getting married. The rest will fall into place when you least expect it to. Your wedding will be special because it’s about the two of you. I kind of got lost in the involving everyone else stuff so much that I lost sight of what it’s all about.
Be strong. You’re wedding will be fantastic. It might even be better than higher budget, losta help weddings because it will have so many personal touches. Your guests will appreciate the intimate gathering and be honored for everything that you do for them…
