I got engaged about a month ago. I am marrying the man of my dreams. I can not wait to be his wife. I am struggling with my family. My father passed away in 2009 and my mother and I use to talk about her giving me away and last year she passed away. They were the most important people to me, and now they will not even be there. My Fiances family has not been very welcoming, actually the opposite, talking about me and disliking me. He obviously wants his family at the wedding, and I am trying to be nice, but his grandparents have talked bad about me, his parents and his brothers. Things are better with his mom, but she is the only one. I know if my parents were alive they would be so excited and no one in his family is excited. They are not helping pay or plan ANYTHING and I have reached out SEVERAL times. My parents would at least HELP pay and be involved. The sad thing is that because my parents have been sick for so long before they passed, my role was to take care of them, so I basically lost my friendships and have not built any new ones yet. I always dreamed of my wedding with my closest friends and dreamed of dancing with my daddy. I don't want to spend 30K for a wedding for his family but I also have always dreamed of a wedding. I do not know what to do!!!! I don't want to wait to marry the man I want to be with either. Any ideas?
