Parents making me sad...

I'm so sorry. Try to look at the positive - they will be there for the ceremony!
If they really are worried about how they'll look to everyone else, point out how they'll look to everything comign in the day before and then leaving the day after. Maybe tell them that everyone will know they don't want to be there?
150 INVITES / 6 YES / 13 NO

They just don't care... They look at it as more of an impostion than an exciting event. If I told them no one else was coming they would stay home. I just thought that this would be something they would be excited about- I am the first of my siblings to be married. I hoped they would be excited.
I guess I should just be happy that they are coming at all... but that is actually stressing me more because now I know they don't really want to be there.

Maybe they just don't want to be in the heat and aren't really into traveling. Some people are that way. My grandmother isn't coming to mine for those exact reasons and there is nada I can do.
On the flip, they are coming to see you get married which is major

I bet they will have a fabulous time, then regret for dragging their feet and buy you a REALLY nice BBQ to make up for it like my inlaws did. LOL

I have 2 suggestions: #1: Talk to your mother, explain that you are upset and tell her how much it would mean to you to have her there Thursday-Monday - If you think it would help, tell her you need her assistance on Thursday and Monday getting organized!?!
#2. Be appreciative that your parents are going in the first place. I have read many many posts that discuss the fact that some peoples parents (including some brides) don't have their parents there at all.
You are fortunate to have them there. If they decide not to stay the whole four days, try not to let it ruin your four days...
