I’m sorry that you are dealing with this. Just remember that the important thing is that you and your fiance are becoming one. That is the important part. If other family members do not want to join in or celebrate, pooh on them then. The fact that feed into your cousin’s insecurity is sad. Just send out your RSVP’s, kindly mention to your grandma you look forward to her taditional wedding annoucement and let the chips fall where they may.

I know it hurts. Every bride has some bit of drama. But keep in mind why you love your SO and remember the joy that is coming with being wed.

Try to hold onto the fact that this isn’t about the attention you get from everyone else, it’s about your future husband and yourself. And if it is about the attention, you probably shouldn’t be doing it.

ANy chance you could mention to your grandmother how much you love her cross stitch announcements, and how lovely a tradition it is? Maybe she doesn’t realize how important it is to people in the family.

We all have some family drama associated with our weddings. It’s a ll about keeping the core true – remember why you chose this!
