Hi there,

First, I’m sorry you are feeling this way. Nobody wants to feel that their wedding isn’t important.

Have you thought about approaching your family and explaining how you feel. I honestly don’t think they’re acting disinterested to hurt you. With brothers they can be funny…I had to figure out exactly what I wanted mine to do, flesh out a proposal complete with job discription and present it to him. Once he knew what he was signing up for and how important I saw his role he took to it and is looking forward to being part of my wedding. As far as your father, I think he has to know how much it would mean to you to have him speak at your wedding, even if for a couple minutes. He’s the first man to have loved you and having his blessing the day you marry the one who does just as much is important stuff. 

I hope this helps! 🙂

feel your pain honey – my sister has decided to leave the country when it is time for my wedding. she doesnt even want to come. Maybe coz I am the first to get married and she is older? she is a flake when it comes to major events in my family. Sad really  🙁

@mrsspaghetti:  my guys parents don’t want to speak so I think I will ask his sister to do it instead. we will have to fight my dad to get the mic off of him lol but it will hit hard that my own sister wont be their on the day. she celebrated her 30th birthday recently and we weren’t invites to anything, she didnt even open the card mum and dad got her and she told me she was allergic to the 2 bottles of expensive french champagne i got her (because she told me she really liked it a month earlier). I feel majorly let down but i am not going to let her ruin my happiness.

When i was single i always wondered if I would get married or not and loved the movie Father of The Bride with Steve Martin (and still do) I wanted and dreamed of the same thing as you – to have all the family close and happy – atleast the rest of the family will support me even if dhe isn’t. No-ones life or wedding planning goes like clockwork like romantic movies – even FOB movie wasn’t a dream wedding lol

P.S I am two bottles of french champagene up so thats the positive outcome – I wouldn’t normally get that for myself!!! LOL Gotta keep looking at the positives……lets put our rose coloured glasses on and have fun !!! xxx
