- Wedding: May 2011
This is a strange situation that has been bothering me and I need to know if it should or not.
My FH and I got engaged in July ’10 and we are getting married in May ’11. This is what is bothering me – no one on his side of the family has offered to throw us a shower or engagement party or anything. When his sister got engaged, his mother (my FMIL) threw her a baby shower, a bridal shower (yes, it was a shotgun) and handled every aspect of the wedding – from planning to paying.
When his older brother got married, his parents threw the engagement party.
My aunt offered to throw us a shower in houston (I’ve lived in dallas for 8 years but i grew up in houston so I don’t have family here), my Maid/Matron of Honor is handling my bachelorette and another bridesmaid threw an engagement party. In fact, when my Bridesmaid or Best Man asked his sister (who is also BM) if she would be interested in co-hosting an engagement party with her, his sister shrugged her shoulders and said she didn’t see the point. Needless to say, she didnt help.
It’s not about gifts or anything like that… I just feel kind of hurt I guess?? He has a large family in dallas and no one has said anything to us about it. Am I being irrational?
