i’m sorry your dress day didn’t go as you’d hoped. but honestly, there are a lot of occasions like this that are very important to a bride… and i think that if you have expectations that certain people be there or act a certain way you’re not only expecting too much out of your family and friends but also setting your self up for disappointment.

i know that picking up your dress was important to you. but face it, if someone else you know was getting married and she asked you to join her to pick up her dress, would you drop everything and treat it like a momentous occasion? i mean, sure, i’d go with – i’d probably even be really excited for her… but it’s really not as important to other people as it is to the bride.


my worry here is really on the fact that you called your FH a "dumbass" and then can’t understand why your family has doubts about this union.

you will never, ever have a whole day that is "just about you and your dress". the closest that will come to that (due to the attention being on you all day and such) is your actual wedding day. but honestly, if you see it that way or if that’s what you really care about, i’d try to re-think the whole situation. please put things into perspective.
