It's what they don't say that irks me....

She said she didn't have her address, but gave me her phone number. Okay - cool - whatever. Then she asked me what I was sending out. I told her it was the STD cards for my wedding. She was like oh, yeah, that's nice. THAT'S IT!!
I don't expect her or anyone else to be over the moon, but I told her (in a somewhat excited voice) that we had went to PV in November and had a wonderful time, checked out the hotel and couldn't wait to get back. I swear...all I heard on her end was crickets! Not - "Oh, I hope we can go, Oh yeah, we're trying to see if we can make it"...nothing!
To date - ALL of my FI's family are going, and NONE of my dad's family are coming. It just irks me. Her response (or lack thereof) is totally expected. I just didn't expect to hear the lack of enthusiasm right to my face. Oh well - I see where I sit with them. My dad's family just gets under my skin.
My dad's siblings (all 8 of them) are close, but they are not close to me & my sisters. I think they are haters. The funny thing is, the woman that raised me and robbed my dad blind (they ultimately divorced when I was 21) - they are closer to her daughters than they are to us! None of that "blood is thicker than water" in my family!
I just want to scream! It's no use in saying anything to my dad because he always goes to their rescue. Sometimes I could just disown my family. I am so blessed to have my FI and his family. His grandmother and aunt came over Saturday and offered to help with everything! His aunt offered to help with getting stuff for my OOT bags, his Grandmother said she would pay for the wedding cake and they offered to ship or take stuff down with them, make flower arrangements and whatever else we need from them. I think they are my little angels that were given to me to make up for the screwed up biological family that I got dealt with.
You know - an hour before I talked to my aunt, my FI's mom called and said that their friends who we met on our last PV visit said they wanted to come to the wedding and wanted our TA's number. I was so happy to hear that. These are complete strangers we spent three days with. They are ready to hop on a plane and share our day with us. I was on cloud nine when she told me that they were coming.
I know....you can pick your friends but not your family.
Thanks all for letting me rant! I feel much better!

It's just a sticky situation but try and keep your head up and focused on the people who are joining you in your celebration (like those ppl you met on your trip - how cool is that?!).

I think they'll come around, but even if they don't, at least you'll have an amazing group of people who are excited to see you get married (FI fam).

I hope it all works out, and they come and have a great time and everyone gets along famously and relationships tighten because of all this. But if they don't, be glad; because if they don't want to be there, they'll just be grumpy and miserable.
Big hugs! You can always invite us! We'll be happy to come and celebrate with you!
Happily married since 2008
