@evail:  Oh I just had the. The! Day from below. We are a few weeks out and had the worst nightmare you can imagine go wrong. Almost fixed now…we hope! My eyes are swollen because I have become such a crybaby, I’m also breaking out all over my FACE (which I rarely ever-ever do), and my house looks like a wedding and an ape had a party all over it.  I’m SO ready for this to be over!

No more time to write, I have to go finish the *[email protected]#?! parasol swizzle sticks. I’ve heard wine works wonders for the skin- that’s my plan now anyway.

@evail:  Deep breath.  Take a few moments, pull your Maid/Matron of Honor aside and ask to have a girls’ night (just you and her) to relax and vent.


You’ll feel better after a margarita and a shoulder to cry on. 🙂

I understand a bit of what you’re experiencing. When I asked my father if he was coming to our wedding his response was, “I’ll try”. I did confront him about it but he says he can’t plan anything much because of his health. Yet he manages to visit his stepchildren in Kentucky 3 or 4 times a year. I live 10 minutes away. Two days ago I sent him an email asking for addresses and have yet to get a response.

I think if I lower my expectations, I’ll be less disappointed. While I think it’s perfectly reasonable to want help and enthusiasm from others, I think you’ll feel better if you just accept the fact that the majority of people aren’t going to be as excited or interested in your wedding as you are. Most people these days are pretty consumed with their own lives. This doesn’t make their behavior right but we have to learn to let the things we can’t change go. If you don’t it’ll just continue to eat you up inside. Don’t let them rob you of your joy.
