Bees, my fiancé and my families have never met – they live about 4hrs apart and tho we have been together for years, there was never a time that made sense for them to get together… Until now.
Neither of our families can afford to host an engagement party for us, and our house is between both off theirs. We have decided to have our parents, siblings, and nieces/nephews all over our house the Sat after Thanksgiving so they can all meet prior to wedding festivities.
His family is considering it a small engagement party, but my side is not. my mom does not want to drive to my house early to help decorate/clean/cook as she has plans and my sister has to work, so it is all up to my fiancé and I.
I’m a little disappointed. My family is very excited about our getting married, but not so eager to help with anything. it’s not about the $, but really…. Mom can’t Offer to bring a centerpiece, or a side dish, nothing?
fee feel awkward hosting our own party, bc no matter what we call it it really is all focused on us! Did anyone have something similar? Is it wrong of me to feel odd?
