    What do I do? None of my family are relatively interested in my wedding atall. Ive had to beg my mum to come dress shopping with me to the point where Im not even sure I want to go with her anymore. Ive asked my uncle to give me away and je is no anti marriage due to the recent breakdown of his... Just feel like giving up.

    What about your future in-laws? It could be a great way of building a bond with them.

    30th August 2014 was the best birthday ever.
    It was the day that I became Mrs. Dixon.

    Ahh babe, I really feel for you, my h2b's family aren't interested at all in our wedding, they haven't even spoken to me about it or us even being engaged. H2b isn't interested in the wedding either so I can completely sympathise with you about how upsetting and hurtful it is, I can't even begin to imagine how hurt I would be if my mum wasn't interested. Have you told her how you feel? If she's still not bothered I think Elinor is right, your inlaws would probably love to be more involved with special things like helping you choose your perfect dress :-) xx

    Im in a similar situation, my family are rather bitchy and if it isn't about them then they are not interested. Every time I mention the wedding to my older sisters they just seem to change subject onto something about themselves, so I feel for you on this one

    I feel for you as I'm in the same situation, my family just aren't interested and I have to force the conversation towards my wedding for them to just go 'mmm', whereas H2B's family never stop talking about it. Makes me feel so down and like they just don't care! Do you have any brothers or cousins that could give you away? They might be really pleased with being asked, obviously if this is something you would want! Hope they come round eventually! Your mum might change once she sees you in your dress :) xx

    I'm so sorry to read this, do you have any sisters or close friends that can try cheer you up about the situation? Or your H2B's brothers or sisters? Don't let other people ruin your day after all you're not getting married to please them? xx

    Yeah my h2b's family talk more about the big day than we do and I speak to my future mother in law more than my own nowadays! My mum has gone distant before and it resulted in an 18 month gap of not talking and Ibdont want that because my daughter loves her to bits. I dont have anyone else to ask to walk me down the aisle as my brother is a groomsman and have no other male relatives that Im close enough to to ask unfortunately. Im hoping he cheers up a bit soon but Im just at a loss. Ive noone to get excited with as I dont have many female friends (hate drama) so the only people I can speak to is h2b and his family. May do what you said and ask the MIL to come shopping with me :) didnt really think.of that tbh but still hurts that my own flesh and blood dont care. Sorry ladies that some of you are in the same position. Horrid! X

    I completely understand, my side of the family aren't the least bit interested. OH's side are quite involved but it's really just the pair of us organising everything.
