My parents upset me a bit when they told me they don’t want to speak at my wedding. It made me upset because I know FI’s parents will say amazing and touching things about him, and I felt left in the dust by my parents. They are nervous in a crowd, especially speeches and my mom in particular is really concerned about crying (which I told her everyone will already be crying so who cares, and shes mother of the bride, it’s NORMAL for her to cry). After I talked to them about how much it would mean to me and that even I don’t want to speak at my wedding, but you get over it and do it.. they have now reconsidered.

Maybe your dad will come around if you tell him how much it upsets you?

Fiance feels the way that you do, so if there is something that your Fiance could say or do to make it better,  let me know. His Dad won’t be there, like at all, because his 10 year old brother had a baseball tournament.
