- Wedding: July 2014
I invited 60 ppl to my wedding. Today is 3 days before my RSVP date and we have 36 attending including us (bride & groom). This number includes a few “last minute” invites. I think we may have 2 more attending but the others I really doubt. The thing is I expected a number of my family members not to come but I’m still disappointed. I thought I was prepared for this?! I wanted a small wedding but maybe not this small. Even worse is that I found out last week that my Grandmother has terminal cancer. She’s the only grandparent I’ve ever had. We’re close and even share the same birthday. She’s elderly and wasn’t going to attend the wedding because of the travel. I’m not trying to sound selfish but my Mom has been so preoccupied with this that she’s taken no interest in my wedding. Which I understand. But I wish she would just ask me something even if it’s small thing. I’m upset about my Grandmother as well…Also, now my Aunt who I really wanted to attend is flying out but not coming to the wedding as she wants to be with Granny. Again, I understand. Others have legit reasons as well, FI cousin is in a wedding party in another wedding on the same day, pre-mature baby, travel costs. My father and I are estranged so he wasn’t invited. Which seems to have caused the few family I have on that side to not even acknowledge I’m getting married. They live across the country so I wasn’t expecting most of them to attend. But not even RSVP’ing is just rude. I’m their only niece. I’ve had a lot of challenges in my life and I didn’t/expect/want/ need everything to be perfect. I don’t know how I expect others to respond to this post… It’s just been a bad few days.
