- Wedding: September 2013
im a long time lurker and have really being enjoying reading everyones lovely engagement and wedding plans.. Unfortunately my first post is a bit of a moan as my wedding seems to be a disaster and just need to vent…
FH and i have have a very small family and group of friends.. Im close to my family but FH not so much to his, as his sister has always dominated their family set up (thats a whole different post lol). Anyway we decided as we could only count approx 10 people we would want at the wedding, we want to do it in mexico on the beach (We dont really fancy the whole church and party scene, a beach wedding with just immediate family fits our personailties perfectly). We found the perfect hotel and i was so excited to tell everyone. But everyones reactions have knocked me down to say the least. In summary:
FH’s sister – refuses to go as its adult only (she has 3 really bratty spoilt kids) as how could we ask her to leave her children and for them to miss their only uncles wedding – i had to resist the urge to remind her she has an annual 2 week holiday abroad without them every year And she was being a hypocrite.
FH’s parents – to our face said it was great, however his mom rang the next day to say his dad was really disappointed as they had hoped for a large family wedding where the kids would be involved as brides maids ect.
My nan and grandad – cant we have it in scotland or france so they can drive (they have never flown – i always knew it would be a risk).
My mom and dad – cant i weigh up the pros and cons ( which incidentally are their con’s), mainly being they dont want to put cats in the cattery ( i do feel bad as they are old cats).
My sister (who i was going to ask to be my MOH) doesnt want to go, as her Boyfriend or Best Friend cant afford to go and she will be bored on her own..
So that covers everyone we where going to invite, im heartbroken, not one person has said thats great, we cant wait. So i guess we either need to re consider our plans or accept its just the two of us eloping…
Sorry for the long post, im just so upset..
Edit – I don’t mean to sound really selfish either, i just read that back and i sound like a right moaning minnie, i guess i had hoped for more positive reactions, but it was alway the risk with choosing somewhere abroad..
