I guess it’s mainly a vent; just spoke with FI’s best man, he was asking what I thought of his plans for FI’s bachelor night. I just feel sad, as far as I know I’m not having any sort of shower/party… my friends are scattered, live in other states, and I don’t have family. I’m thinking of the reality as the wedding approaches, and it feels a bit sad – no parents there, no sisters/brothers, just me.
I wouldn’t say any of this to Fiance, I wouldn’t want to take away any of his fun, so thanks for letting me vent here. I know, I’ll get over myself and move on, but it just stings right now.

I am sorry, I would be bummed to. Is there anyone local you could ask out as a celebration even if its not an official bachlorette?

Oh wow that sucks! Does the Best Man know you aren’t having anything? Maybe they can include you in the plans? I don’t see why you wouldnt be able to join in on the fun. It can be a couples bachelor/bachelorette party….or is that lame?

@angelica3025: One of my friends had a joint party because they are kinda homebodies and dont go out much. They thought it would be more fun to have every one get together and celebrate, and let me tell you, it was a BLAST!
Maybe your Fiance could have his guys only night, and then you can plan another night with every one all together?

Thanks everybody for the support!
Well, there was supposed to be a family party (FI’s family), but the last I heard everybody was too busy and it got cancelled. My Maid/Matron of Honor is coming into town right before the wedding and we’re going to hang out, I guess it’s the idea that anybody would throw a party for me I’m sorta weepy about. Somehow if I do it myself it’s not the same.

Awwww, I’m sorry! That sucks. I’ve totally been in situations like that. I really don’t have a lot of friends that live close to us, and my guy has plans several times a week with his friends. Feeling left out sucks 🙁 *hugs*

@karenski: thats a bummer! I know how you feel too…all my girls were from out of town and i felt left out from the whole stage/stagette thing (my DH’s boys were all here…)
If you come to Vancouver i will host one for you 🙂

Just for curiositys sake, why do you not have any family coming? None the less I am sorry your feeling left out 🙁 I second planning a night for everyone to go out so you at least feel celebrated in some way.

*Hugs* I feel for you. I would ask the guys if its okay that you chum along (as long as its alright with them). No reason you can’t celebrate your marriage too just because your friends are scattered all about.

Are any of your friends flying in before the wedding? You could have a bachelorette a couple of days before so that your Out of Town girls can participate. That’s what I’m doing.

I’m sorry 🙁 That’s gotta be hard… What about taking a weekend trip to visit one of your closest friends? Maybe you could have a bit of a girly weekend together and get a pre-wedding massage or something along those lines. I’m not sure if that’s a possibility but I just thought I’d throw it there for you. Regardless, I am sorry to hear about you feeling down right now.
