just under a year to go and i have had enough, doesnt look like i have any family ( my side) attending the wedding
Unfortunately it happens. I had 6 members of family at mine, 2 of which left just as the evening started and one left after the meal. The only remaining family my side was then my parents and brother. Surround yourself with people important to you from different friendship groups.
We had a whole church... all my husbands friends and family... none of mine literally none my dad had passed away and my mums side of the family all blocked me. At the. End of the day there is still gonna be a wedding and more food and cake and wine for you guys lol oh and congratulations. Hope the weather is amazing for your special day
Surround yourself with people who love you. You can't force people to care,DNA doesn't mean love unfortunately. Just know that every person who attends are there because they care for you. Big hugs
We had that problem. I have a large family. My husband didn't and were out numbered. It doesn't matter at the end of the day as long as you have the ones with you who.are important and you truly want with you
I only had my mum and dad and my two daughters at one point my parents were so poorly i didnt know if they would make it and i was all ready to walk down the aisle on my own i was so worried what my side of the church would look like and asked the photographer not to ask for the brides family photos but i work in a social club and over the years have made some amazing friends and they are my second family and when i walked in to church there they all were packing myside out and were all ready to shout we do when asked who gives this women away family isn't blood family is who is there when it matters xxx
Iam the same with my family. I have more on my side going compared to my partners side he hasn't really got that many going but like we both said as long as we got people around us who love us it's not about numbers x enjoy your day with who is there with u i say. Good luck and congratulations on the day x
((((( ❤️ )))))
Keep going , it's also about Loving your other half xx
I have a similar issue, my brother told me that my dad has said he wont come and probably my mum, the stupid reason - that my fiance isn't talkative!! He treats me like a princess get on well with my daughter, but as i said to my bro - sod them! I will just invite those who matter to me - doesnt have to mean relatives!! Try not to let it get you down hun. Xx
I have 7 family members coming to my wedding. Sod the ones that aren't. Yea it's a shame but I'd rather have my wonderful friends than them anyway!
As long as you have a beautiful day it doesn't matter who's there! Xx
My husbands parents didn't come and I can promise on the day you won't notice at all (we didn't) Surround yourself with people who love and care about you and your H2B and don't let any family drama upset your day. As long as you end up married to your fiancé that's all that matters (I had the same advice from a lot of people and only agree with it now we're married!) x
I will only have mum and my brother on my side but it's more about what the day means and having those closest to you there x
None of my family came back for the evening reception because another family member booked a party on the same night despite also being invited. I was hurt especially since I'd moved the wedding to my home town rather than where I live (2 hours away) so they wouldn't have to travel but at the end of the day all my friends were there and it was a great night that they missed..
Sometimes its better to not have all family there the people that matter shud be there doesnt matter if its family or friends x
Family are only skin deep.u will have plenty of friends helpin u enjoy your day.xx
My husband had 3 members of his family at our wedding - it's about you and your h2b so don't worry, enjoy your day xx
Oh you've taken me and bill off the guest list , thanks for telling me via Facebook
I had this last year so we postponed a year. This year regardless of people's opinions were doing it anyway. What I learnt was you will never please everyone and sometimes no one but it's only yourself you should be pleasing xx
I only had my mum and dad there, it's about who means the most to you and what you mean to them. If you've invited them and they can't be bothered then it's their loss not yours.
Both families become one on the day so you will have your h2b's family there and I'm sure they will treat you like their own.my fiancé doesn't have a big family and my Nan has always said when we get married she will be telling guests to pick a seat and not a side when in the church.your day will be special to you both doesn't matter who's there Hun x
I only had my mum and my brother. My dad didn't want to go all the way to Scotland to see me in a big white dress. I'm English and hubby Is Scottish we live in Scotland and my husband has a massive family compared to me but we still had a brilliant day. All my close friends from England made the effort xxx
None of my family are attending my wedding as I don't get on with either of my parents or their sides of the family. They Will not have been part of my life for 10 years by time my wedding comes around and I feel they don't deserve to be apart of my special day. Since I met my partner's family I have been accepted,loved and supported as one of their own. I look forward to starting a new chapter with my h2b .
We're not inviting anyone it's a day for us after all
We are only having my mum and dad and my niece. I don't see the rest of the family so not planning to invite them. My H2B doesn't have any family so we don't need to worry about that side x
Your H2B family will soon be your family too so enjoy your day with people who want to celebrate with you regardless of wh's family they originally belonged to, I've got a sign which will will tell people to sit whereever they like for the ceremony as we'll all be family soon. Pick a chair not a side!. Congratulations and have a super wedding whatever. It's yours and H2B day and not anyone elses.
