I am SOO there with you!

I have been engaged for 10 months. No one threw us an engagement party. No one asks how the wedding planning is coming along. No one really cares which is really depressing.

My Maid/Matron of Honor lives in another state and got engaged a few months ago so she is in her planning whirlwind, my 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man is also in another state and the 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man I have here, is pregnant. ha. My mom isnt the girly, planning, get all emotional type. SO i am totally alone in ths entire process. My brothers are in the military and both overseas, and my dad is MIA. haha.

MY fiance wants to elope, but I cant bring myself to do it.

I feel the same way sometimes too!  I live on the opposite coast as my family and BMs (and also the wedding will be on the other coast).  My Fiance has been good at helping with things (also it helps that we are not detail oriented, and so we are not spending too much time planning anyway!), but I didn’t want him to come dress shopping for obvious reasons.  So I went alone for the last try-on and to buy it, and man was I so depressed!  It didn’t help that I was really excited to go dress shopping, so it couldn’t live up to the expectations anyway.  I had the same problem with the lady not really helpful or nice (you’d think they’d be nicer to solo brides knowing they may be a little blue!)  After I had forked over the dough (and more than I expected…bummer!) I was actually sitting in the waiting room, waiting for my Fiance to pick me up, silently sobbing!  Not what I had in mind, for sure! 

So I’m sorry to hear that you guys are going through the same thing, even if misery loves company a little bit 🙂  Haha so if I can be sappy I really love reading the WB boards, though I don’t post often, because I get my fill of wedding/girl talk!

I’m in the exact same boat! My Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man are on the east coast and my family is in the midwest while I’m on the west coast. I went dress shopping by myself and for one dress had to try to take pictures of myself in it to send to my Maid/Matron of Honor. Some salespeople have been nice, but even then I wonder if they’re just trying to make the sale. I’ve also been doing all the planning myself and even though my Fiance offers to help, he’s just not the planning type. I’ve definitely had days where I’ve felt very alone in the process and was even going to post today about how all the planning right now is just making me grumpy. It’s good to know that other people feel the same way! I do just try to remind myself when I’m especially grumpy that it’s all for something really great and that it will all lead up to a wonderful day.

I can’t believe I’m not the only one! I actually spent all of Saturday crying over the fact that I feel so alone! My parents and I aren’t very close, my mother lives in another state and my father overseas. I don’t even know if they’ll be at my wedding! I have three sisters, but only one has really been there for me, she actually came with me for my first dress trial, but none of the pictures came out! But at the end of the day I come home and read all the WB boards and I don’t feel so alone! Thanks!

O my goodness ladies, i’m so sorry to hear that people aren’t involved in your life that you can cherish this time with. I wonder if you guys posted on local boards to meet other brides in your areas if that would help you make more friends and who knows maybe run into one of them? I’m so sorry but feel free to post pictures and we will all help you and tell you how wonderful you look in your dresses.
