Im sorry. Family dynamics are difficult. It just makes you more appreciative of the people who do show up.

@acciotoni:  ever though of moving south? j/k all you need is your boo and the day will be magical. just make your marriage last longer than her first and you win. longer than her second and you get bonus points.

Hey we all feel crappy, get a little jealous, at least you’re venting about here and trying to let it go in a healthy manner rather then lashing out. 

I actually understand where you’re coming from, and can see where this has dredged up these emotions for you. I am sorry you have to deal with these emotions, just don’t let them take away the beauty and awesomeness of planning a wedding, and getting married. 

As time moves along, planning goes into full swing this will just go to the way-side, and on the day of the wedding it will go by quickly and you’ll be too busy and way too happy to care about all the downs through out this time leading up to the wedding. 

Good luck~

I actually understand where you are coming from. My husband and I where engaged right around a year when his cousin got engaged. I was really happy for her, especially since she was one of my brides maids. They mentioned that they were going to wait another year to allow my husband and I to have the spotlight since we were engaged first. Well, that never happened. They decided to get married about 3 months after ours. Also, during all the prewedding events she kept bring up her wedding! It really was bothering and upsetting me. I don’t have the greatest relationship with my extended family so this just brought me back to that whole pile of crap. I feel for you. I have been there and it is not fun. One thing you should try to remember is what the day really is about. You and your fiancee becoming a family. If they don’t want to be a part of that special day then they are missing out. I am sure you will have a wonderful wedding!

@acciotoni:  Yeah, that does suck I know I would be yapping my fiance’s ear off about people ignoring our RSVPs! Don’t worry though! Seriously, you’ll move on from this, plans will change around and you’ll make sure that you fully enjoy your wedding and everyone who attends.

I’m sorry. You have every right to your feelings. I understand how you feel. My family is the same way with me. I could find the cure for cancer, and if my sister farts it’s better than what I’m doing. Wait until you bring children into the mix. Good luck not feeling constantly slighted. Do what’s best for you and the family you are creating. Good luck! I can’t wait to see pics!

I’m sorry. I would be bummed, too. The guests who committed to going to your wedding should be going to yours.
