@alyssars1:  Oh no sweetie! Sounds like you just need a big hug. ๐Ÿ™‚  You’re not being a big baby – but it sounds like there’s just a lot of things going on in the family.  I know it’s really cliche, but everything will be okay!

You have every right to be disappointed and I’m so sorry they have treated you this way, especially after the accommodations you made with them in mind. That is just a shame. C’mon, grandma! I don’t get her thinking and it sounds like a lame excuse. She can’t even make an exception considering it is your wedding day? She’s in the presence of ex-witnesses EVERY DAY. When she goes to the grocery store, when she travels, so what the hey, come see her granddaughter marry for Pete’s sake! That is very frustrating.

I hear ya on the overinviting only to have 70 people reply. We had a similar scenario but for different reasons. We still had a wonderful day and you will, too. Try to focus on those that will attend.

Maybe someday you can have a vow renewal and have that cute church ceremony then. Something to look forward to? ๐Ÿ™‚ Until then, it is exciting your day is coming up so soon. Soak up these remaining days of preparation and breathe.

@alyssars1:  I am so sorry that’s happened to you.

Did you enjoy your bridal shower? Maybe your Fi family is way cooler?

My Fiance is going to only have about 6 family members at our wedding, but he will be enjoying it with my family and our friends. What’s great about getting married is that you are restarting your family with someone else, maybe focus on the family members who aren’t douchebags and are coming to the wedding, your friends, and his family!

I know it hurts, and I’m not telling you to “suck it up”. I’m just trying to be encouraging. Family is so often a disappointment in our lives, and it is terrible because we assume they are supposed to stand by us. Be glad you are starting a new family with your husband and focus on that! I know that’s been a lot of my drive with my wedding.

You are not acting unreasonably.
