- Wedding: April 2014
I have recently come to feel that everyone (including my family) doesn’t really care about our engagement or wedding. It is kind of upsetting because I have done everything everyone has asked for years and years. I have been in countless weddings, been to countless bridal showers, baby showers, engagement parties, gender reveal parties, 1st birthday parties, etc. I have gone above and beyond for my friends (going to florist appointments, making diaper cakes, buying expensive presents) and I feel I am just not getting the same from my friends and family.
Maybe it is because I will be an older bride (29) and I am the last to get married out of my friends and family. I feel like people are over it and don’t care. It makes me mad because now that it’s MY time…my time to get to have the parties and get the cute thoughtful gifts but it’s just not happening. Maybe it is because I’m having a Destination Wedding and people don’t consider that a “real wedding”. I’m not sure but I just want to same experience everyone else got during their engagement! I don’t know how to express this without sounding completely selfish or like a bridezilla! Is anyone else experiencing something similar?
