I am so heartbroken..

Recommended Posts

Well I don't have much family left.. or well lets say family that I talk to anymore. I don't even get along with my Mother (because she is completely insane). The only person in my family (other than my brothers) that I am close to is my Aunt who lives in Flordia.

Right before she was about to confirm everything to go to our DW, her and her husband decided it was time to get a divorce.. So she was going through all that and unable to come to the DW, which was understandable. But promised that she would make it the AHR. I just now get an e-mail saying that she can't make it because her and her new boyfriend are spending all their money on renting a house and can't afford to come. Not only does it break my heart that the only family member I get along with isn't going to be at at least my AHR, but I have to say it pisses me off as well because she COULD come alone and not bring her boyfriend to save money. Oh and not to mention the fact that I had decided not to get a professional photographer for the reception because she said she would do it for me.. So not only am I out her being there but I'm screwed because I have no photographer at all!!!!

AHHHH!!!rant.gif

I am so sorry to hear that! That just straight up blows!!! Could you maybe suggest that to her? Ask her to come alone and explain how you really wanted her to come? Family just sucks sometimes!

I'm sorry you're dealing with all of this! Have you tried talking with her to see if you can convince her to come?

That stinks! I'm not sure when your AHR is, but maybe you could start calling around to see if any photographers have your date available. Maybe there are some that have had cancellations or something. If not, maybe another relative or friend wouldn't mind taking pictures for you.

Our AHR is March 8th... A few months back I had check with the only photographer in my town and she was already booked for that day... I guess I will have to find a friend or someone who knows how to at least take a decent picture do it.. I am an avid hobby photographer myself .. wish I could have an out of body experience and take my own photos!!

I am so sorry to hear this. I can't believe she emailed you to tell you! Have you talked with her about this over the phone or anything yet? Do you have your date for the AHR set? Do you think talking to her and telling her how hurt you are will help? I am sorry for you!!

Yeah, the date is completey set in stone.. Only a week and half away actually. So definitly no changing this. I told her how I felt but she still feels like she won't be able to make it. My husband and I even told her that we would allow her, her boyfriend, her 2 children & his son to stay with us to save on costs when they come up. Which is a big sacrafice because we only have a 2 bedroom house and it would probably be insane with 4 adults and 3 children in it..

Oh, that stinks! I wonder if she knew how much it meant to you, if she'd make more of an effort? We had a similar situation w/ family-FI's brother was supposed to be the BM at our wedding and then totally flaked and isn't coming at all now, it was really disappointing...family can really suck sometimes!

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
