I’m sorry.  Some people will never understand what a blessing family can be.  You are the lucky one.

I’m really sorry about all of that. It’s rough when your family doesn’t support you like you need sometimes. When I got engaged FI’s family took us all out to dinner and a hockey game. My family barely said congrats. Instead my mom took it as the time to tell me I needed to move back home.

I’m sorry your family cannot give you the support you are looking for.  Some people aren’t capable of giving of themselves to others.  I’m glad that you realize that you can have a special wedding celebration that includes people who care about you and support you.  Sometimes we need to create “family” in a non-traditional way.

Congratulations on your engagement, and I wish you all the best as you plan your wedding.

Honey I have a sister who hasn’t spoken to me for 21 years and I haven’t a clue why. She didn’t even attend my daughter’s funeral. She didn’t invite me to her kids’ weddings. I am sorry your sister isn’t into your wedding and isn’t into building a decent relationship but some people are just like that. That’s one of the reasons I love my friends and even my in-laws who welcomed me with open arms.

I turned 50 the day after our wedding and we had a lovely time.We had a garden ceremony followed by a simple reception of light refreshments and cake. Then the next day we had a huge casual pig roast at a picnic grounds we rented for the day. My brother was the only blood relative there but I was BLISSFULLY happy. Feel free to visit our wedding web site if you need ideas! And CONGRATULATIONS! Be proud of YOUR progress and this new chapter in your life!
