So after years of my parents wanting us to have the "big wedding", we have decided to have one. We are doing it in a different state since most of the family is there. EVERYONE is excited and is coming- except my own parents and only sibling. They are not attending, and it is NOT a financial issue or a job issue. When I asked one of them why, the answer was "eh its just a few days and it's not worth going all the way over there." My mom has not shown any interest in the wedding planning and preparations, and I tried to get her interested- nothing. It's not an approval issue of my second half, they have known him for years and we both attend every family function of their's ( birthdays, graduations, etc. ).They are certainly not paying for any part of the wedding. I am left trying to resolve the walking down the aisle issue without a dad now, just two months before the wedding, among the vast array other things we had planned that included the both sets of parents. I just don't understand their apathy. I am also worried about what my fiancé's family will think when they don't show up at all to the wedding. What am I supposed to say? What possible excuse could I make for them? How am I later to explain to other's their lack in the portraits? This has left me completely heartbroken.
