My brother and I have different fathers. Well, my brother’s aunt (N) and grandmother (B) have been a Godsend to me during this whole wedding thing. They just keep doing and doing for me and I honestly don’t even feel deserving of it. Not that I’ve ever treated them wrong or done anything mean/talked about them/etc. I just don’t think I deserve so much kindness from anyone. They’re letting me use all of the wedding decor from N’s wedding that took place last month. They’re helping me get things together with the DIY projects. NTM, B is standing in as a free DOC for my big day.
Just now, N posted on my FB wall that she was currently making a wedding gift for me. This would be on top of the other wedding gift she’s getting me that my mom slipped and told me about (which is an AWESOME gift, btw). I am nearly in tears. I don’t know how to react to such wonderful treatment from people.
Nobody (and I do mean nobody) in my family or FI’s is as concerned or involved in my wedding as my brother’s grandma and aunt. That might seem crazy, and it really is, but it’s true. I have two BMs. My sister is not concerned with me or my wedding, even though she’s the Maid/Matron of Honor. FCIL might as well not even be apart of the thing because she never contacts me or wants to talk about it. When I do try to talk to her, all she has to say are negative things. My mom has seemed more interested recently, but she doesn’t know much about the ins and outs of weddings so she can’t help with much other than financial aspects. I hardly speak to anyone else in my family because I never get the opportunity to see them. Some of them acted excited about my wedding at a family gathering last month, but they’ve failed to follow up with me on FB or via telephone to help do stuff. FI’s family… well, that’s just a joke. My FSILs and I aren’t the best of friends, I really don’t even want one of them at my wedding, period. Future Mother-In-Law seems really disinterested in the whole thing, like she doesn’t care… So, all I’ve got are N and B. I obviously am going to want to thank them in a big way, but I don’t have tons of money to do anything super lavish. If it were up to me, I’d send them on a cruise or something. But, I can’t even send myself on one. Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do for them as a thank you?
