I’m sorry you’re feeling so down. Have you talked to your mother about how you feel? Hopefully your family will be supportive of you and will show up.

Sometimes I’ve found in the past my family was simply in protective mode when it came to me and dating. My xh was also a jerk and it’s if they wanted to sit me on a shelf somewhere, but not want me to remarry because they were afraid of me being hurt again.
Since that time, I’ve let them get to know T, and over the last 2 years they know who he is as a man and that my past is not going to repeat in the future with him.
also, how long have you been single? I know that had I gotten remarried too quickly after my divorce, they might not have been as accepting. Jmho.
Let them *(what worked for me)* get to know your Fiance over time and they will feel the same too. Also as IA Snowflake said, good communication is great. Talk to your mom and family! I would also be very supportive and get into helping with your brothers’ wedding planning too. When they see you being supportive, I think they’ll want to talk about it, and become supportive of you also.
