Wow, that sounds stressful! Glad you made it through. Hopefully there are just as many -if not more- good memories of your wedding πŸ™‚

It sucks that your family sound like a bunch of overgrown children.  I understand your frustration. Unfortunately that’s just the type of people they are and that’s just how it’s going to be. πŸ™ I think they’ve clearly indicated the kind of expectations you should have for them in the longrun.

Wow I’m sorry that your family acts like nutjobs. I cannot believe your sister was getting mad over your wedding stuff when she isn’t even engaged yet.

Just breathe and remember you are done with it and finally married! Laughing

I’m glad you were able to focus on what’s important (you and DH!) and let the dysfunction of your family fall to the wayside.  I had a similar disappointments with my family and it still sucks, when I think about it.  Part of my wedding planning experience was realizing how much crap I put up with from my family and allowing that to be part of my past … and not my future with my new family with DH.  HUGS and cheers to letting the crazy live in the past and not the present.

The craziest part was the dude blowing out the votives from your centerpieces!  WHAAAAAAAAAAA?  You can’t make up that kind of crazy!

Sorry people couldn’t grow up for one day. πŸ™  But, glad it’s all over, and worth it for you!

@Khalessi3:  I think it’s awesome that you are recognizing all of that.  It IS mourning the loss.  For me, it took a while longer, because I still (and, if I’m honest, still do!) continue to hold out hope that they will change.  I do recognize that people do NOT change at their core, so I move on and count my blessings for which I have many.  But, not having that nuclear family support stings from time to time… but, it’s also part of moving on.  Something that helped me was recongizing that my family did their very best to love me the best way they knew how.  That was really freeing for me because I knew it wasn’t about me but about them and their ability and capacity to love and give.
