mshoneybeespgbuzz:  I’m sorry bee 🙁 that really sucks. Is your family usually close? Or do they usually just kind of do their own thing?

Are there any reasons they might have to dislike your fiance? Have they always been this way about your relationship?

Are they not supportive of you getting married yet? Are you pretty young?

I find it strange that your family doesn’t want to come with you to look for a dress?

I understand that no one will be as excited as you about your own wedding, but come on?

How old are you? Do they have reservations about you getting married?

I’m sorry that you’re going through this bee. It’d be very hard to be alone through all the planning. I would maybe ask your family why they don’t want to do this with you, and tell them you could really use thier moral support. Maybe they just don’t realize how important it is to you, or maybe there is another underlying issue with your family that we don’t know about. Do they like your fiance? Do they think you’re to young? Those are the only things I can think of… Good luck bee, and do your best to enjoy this time, even if your family chooses not to be involved.

Is your wedding far away?

We were going through the same things with our wedding. Nobody wanted to help plan, look at things, etc. Now that we are getting closer to the date, I have been doing things without asking for anyone’s help or opinion. When they ask why, I tell them that they seemed uninterested. You get used to it.

mshoneybeespgbuzz:  They probably think you’re too young especially because you live at home still.

My parents didn’t want to do anything to help either.  The day before the wedding when I was setting everything up they went for a long walk then took a nap until it was time for the rehearsal.  They just wanted to have fun at the wedding and not do any work.

I did all the diy myself.  One of my bridesmaids has a kid and the other lived in another state.

  I went dress shopping by myself, but I didn’t ask anyone to go with me.

Some people just don’t care about weddings. When my sister got married a few years ago, she felt a lot like you did, and it made me sad to see her that way. I tried to force myself to care about her wedding but I just couldn’t. (My parents showed less enthusiasm than I did, in part bc her relationship with my mom is strained.) I was thinking about stuff going on in my actual life and my sister wanted me to call and discuss micro-details of a party…I just didn’t care at all. It doesn’t mean I love her any less. I just think weddings are silly. Maybe your family feels the same way?
