I’m sorry to hear that.  Enjoy the people who really want to be there to support you, and hopefully at some point your Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law will recognize that they’ve slighted you by not attending.

Well course I can understand. I would be bummed too.

I’d be upset too, I mean, they are your future in-laws.  Enjoy the people who are there and have a good time!

@armychica06:  I had close family members miss my shower to. The best revenge is to enjoy yourself, post plently of pictures so they can see how happy you are, and know that it’s their loss, not yours.

Ouch. I’d be hurt and angry too, if I were you!

Welcome to reality…. It is interesting to see the occasional double standard when it comes to in laws… I’m sorry you’re in this situation.

I hear you. I posted a similar thing recently. My Future Sister-In-Law is a Bridesmaid or Best Man and won’t be attending my shower (has known about it for a while) for what I see is not a good reason. But oh well, I’m over it now – it will be fun with the guests who are there! It’s her loss ultimately.

I’m sorry- some people can be really self involved.

Hope you have a lovely time without them!

@armychica06:  It sucks.  But I think it’s safe to say that they have a history of letting you down?  You just have to adjust your expectations.  Understandably, this is a big event for you, but since when have they made you a priority in their lives?  Why would this be any different?

I get it, trust me, I do.  And I get that letting this crap go is easier said than done.  But the more you expect, the more you will be disappointed.

Surround yourself, and more importanly, be GRATEFUL for your friends and family members that do matter and that share their love with you.

Don’t sweat it.  Good luck!

It does suck, but I hope you have a great day none the less
