Mum is not interested
Since I was a little girl I wanted to get married on a beach with no shoes on, it was no secret it's always been my dream!
When my fella proposed we knew straight away it was going to be overseas, my family knew, his family knew worlds worst kept secret,
a few months after we got engaged we started looking around for destinations, we found prices and looked to see if it was affordable for all the family to come.
We sent messages and phoned/FaceTime to see if they would be prepared to travel they all said yes we commited to a destination and everyone was sharing our excitement and booked shortly after us apart from my mum and sister
they were planning, buying new things for the holiday my sister was even to be bridesmaid, it came to January this year and they still hadn't booked yet continued to tell me they were coming,
eventually they booked! I was really happy because I wanted my mum and sister there, it came to April and they still hadn't paid anything off the holiday apart from the deposits ( full holiday was due for payment in July) I asked my mum if she was struggling to pay ? Her response to me was " i don't think I'm coming I can't take the flight, I can't take the heat, and I'm really not that interested! I was devistates my own mother not interested in my one and only wedding!! My sister still said she was coming but wasn't sure who she would bring as her husband is going back overseas ( army) the payment due date come and went and they hadn't paid, their holiday was cancelled
now to get married in this hotel you need to have 5 rooms with my sister cancelling it was reduced to 4 so there was a threat of my wedding being cancelled because of them (we have sorted this now)
when I told them they didn't seem bothered, my mothers response was " oh well"
so i get married in October and none of my family are coming (apart from our 3year old daughter) my mother isn't even speaking to me she won't answer my calls/FaceTime/texts nothing
I'm trying to not let it bother me but it is difficult that my family and particularly my mother is not interested
mid anyone has any words of wisdom I would be grateful
