northernazbride, I’m so sorry 🙁 I will say that one thing I’ve learned in planning my own wedding is that some ppl just weren’t raised the same way and don’t see the importance in those things like I do (and you do). Although Mr Frenchie’s mom has offered to help in some ways, his father has been completly out of it (divorced parents). And even though she is paying for the rehearsal dinner she sees no need to do invitations for it. I even offered to do them and she was like, "Well I sent everyone in my family an email so I know who is coming." While I’m thinking what about the out of towners? Some ppl just don’t find as much value in the things we do. Sadly 🙁

I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling this way around such an important time in your life.  I understand how you’re feeling because my FIs family wasn’t very friendly or supportive (emotionally or financially) about our wedding at first either.  In all this wedding planning, we’ve realized that unfortunately, a lotta people don’t really know what’s expected of them or how important every part of this process is for the engaged couple.  We’re the only ones who know every little detail and wish that they knew how much time & effort goes into this one day! 

Have you & your Fiance talked to his parents about checking in with them to see if they have an idea if they can go at all or not?  I know in my family, we have to track down RSVPs cause people just forget sometimes. 

I hope it all works out for you, try not to focus on who won’t be there and celebrate with who is there instead.  Situations are always what you make of it – you’re going to have a blast no matter what!

I’m sorry!  I know it’s tough.  My friend is getting married and her Future Mother-In-Law basically told her that she couldn’t expect a lot of people from her family to even bother making the trip to her wedding (about 2 hrs. away) because not everyone can afford gas, hotel, etc.  It really hurt her feelings, but I told her you don’t want people there who aren’t willing to make the trip.  I hope you feel better!!

Just remember that those who are most important to you will definitely be making the trip!
