I am EXTREMELY sensitive, even though our wedding is months away.

 

My fiance's sister is getting married next month, and his brother & sister-in-law are having a baby in Sept (he's 1 of 6, big family) and no one is even acknowledging that we're getting married. I know this is me being a spoiled brat, but is it too much to ask to have them ask me "how's it going?"

 

It really has me upset.

I am the same right now --- and I feel so guilty to have everyone travel and spend all this money. I guess its b/c people can't get a hold of the crappy TA and today was the last day to pay!! I sent 3 emails URGING people to pay at the latest on Wednesday b/c she was so unreliable. Then they contact me or FI when they cannot get a hold of her today at 12pm.

Don't worry - it'll be your time soon - I actually talked more on this site daily about my wedding than I did weekly to actual live people!!!

Are you doing an AHR or do you expect all of these people to come to Mexico? Just curious b/c we are doing an AHR b/c FI has a big family too (6 kids - even tho some are step) and most of them had kids and therefor eno $ to come to Mexico.

Thanks, I really haven't felt like a bride yet because of them completely ignoring us. I don't even think any of them congratulated us.

We are also doing an AHR, haven't worked any of those details out yet though. My FI's two brother's can't go because the one's wife won't travel with their 2-year old and the other's wife is expecting, so that was how I was able to convince my FI to do it. He thinks it's just another way for us to ask for presents, but I just want to be sure we get to celebrate with everyone.

And - we spent gagillions of dollars on all of these people for their weddings and babies, so why can't I want presents too? angel1.gif

Sara - those are fun! I have a pair I got as a shower gift :)

 

I feel like I have to be this "bride persona" with everyone else, that I'm beautiful and happy and blah blah blah.

 

I've started being more honest with people lately and a friend told me to just "keep pretending to be happy for a little while longer" um, why?

 

I'm sick of this question, "OMG, you're getting married! OMG, it's so soon... are you excited??!?!?!"

 

My answer, "NO. I'm stressed."

 

People don't like this answer but tough, hahahaha!!!!

 

Sara - you're right you should have acknowledgment and feel like a bride, people should be happy for you and want to help you absolutely!

I got a pair at my shower too!

Sara - what? This sounds like a job for your bridal party! Do you think you have someone you can tell that will get the word out or throw you a happy engagement party? Doesnt have to cost a thing - just meet after 5pm for drinks somewhere?!

I think I'm going to buy them for myself wink.gif

We're not having a bridal party. We're very modern and neither of us wanted a wedding party, which worked out perfectly.

His father wanted to throw us an engagement party but my FI is so stinking modest that he doesn't want it to be another "buy me gifts" occasion, since we're doing the DW and the AHR. And we've been engaged since October, so it's a little late for that :)

But, I do have a couple of incredible friends that are getting me excited. I was actually a bridesmaid in one of their weddings 2 weeks ago, and even though she's not an official bridesmaid, she and another girl are excited that my wedding is next and are planning all sorts of stuff. I am so grateful to have them as friends!

Sara - engagement parties don't require gifts at all! Also, engagement parties can be thrown anytime in between the engagement and the marriage :)

 

I now know why other past brides are so interested in my weddings because anytime a friend gets engaged I 20 question them and they get overwhelmed :)

I know I really shouldn't worry about weather a week away, but it's just a bad day overall so I'm extra sensitive.
Wendy!!!! So excited for you. Just remember, somethings won't be how you imagine it to be. Its all about you commiting your life to someone, not how great the party is!!(mine was super cold and NOT what I fanasized about for months, but I remember the amazing parts!!!)
Beautiful pics help to ease the pain of not having a totally perfect day!") You will be gorgeus!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
