    I know she would be able to afford to come if she would be a little bit more responsible with her money. She does make over 50k a year. My aunt said she is just jealous because she isn't married and wants this to be her wedding.

     

    We are the only siblings in the family. I personally know I can get over it and look past it this, but it made my mom cry all long today and It really makes me angry, My dad left my mom about a year ago and its been really hard on her. She doesnt need my sister acting like a knob!

     

    I haven't confronted her because I don't want to make things worst, but GRRRRRRR makes me angry she only thinks about herself.


    Same thing happened with both of my sisters, pissed me off so much beacuse I went to their weddings that ended in divorce within a year, and here I am celebrating my wedding after 7 years with my FI and both my sisters are like no we think its selfish that you want us to waste our vacation time on your wedding.  So now I'm not having a bridal party.  Screw them.

      Exact same as my sister! She is divorced too and my sister had complained about vacation time to...before Cancelling. She also was pissed I was doing a white wedding and didnt want to have to get a dress.

       

      So people can be so bitter! Can they just get over themself for once?

       

      Are you not going to have anyone walk down the Aisl before you then? Is there going to be a best man? I am interested because I want to cut down all the people walking down the aisl at my wedding. Its getting a little crazy and most of them arnt my idea.

        I have always wanted a sister until I got on this website!!! I have read so many stories and vents about brides and their sisters. It makes me even happier to have a younger brother.

         

        My FI and I decided to not to have any bridal party. We think it is too much drama and just more money that our bridal party would have to spend. So the first and last person walking down the isle will be me and my dad. And no one will be standing next to us.

          Not a major confession, but I wish my family had money to help me pay for the wedding.  My FI and I are paying for it all, and actually he is footing most of it since he makes more than me.  It stinks to have to cut back and things you would like to have, but then again it makes you really appreciate every detail you do spend money on.

            I hear ya! We're fotting the bill ourselves too....and sat down at the beginning of the year to figure out what we needed to save. It sucks when our friends are heading out for a night on the town, or dinners out, and we usually have to say no b/c we need the money for saving. It'll be worth it in the end, but sometimes its hard to see that when you feel like you're missing out on stuff!

              I feel the pain of this as well. It especially hurts because my parents are helping my sister pay for her DW, but are not contributing anything to mine.

                I agree with you girls about paying your wedding yourself. My FI and I have paid off our wedding ourselves and while it did suck not being able to go out, its such a great feeling that we got everything that we wanted and didnt have to consider others when upgrading on things or splurging here and there.

                  We took out a big loan to pay for ours.. it sucks because it would be  nice to be using the money we use for payments on something else.. but oh well...

                    We are paying for our own wedding too, but at least we know we only have to please ourselves.

                      We are paying for ours as well.  However, I wouldn't have my family pay for it... It would be in my parent's back yard and we'd have to deal with it.

                       

                      My confession:  FI and I took a west coast swing class tonight, had a blast but looked like like fools, everyone had taken classes before but we were true first timers.
