Hi- just wondering if any other ladies out there are feeling alone in their engagment? I lost my mother about a year ago, no sisters and my fiance's mother and I don't speak a common language. No one on either side of the family has offered to throw any type of engagement party or help with anything wedding-related, and my MOH informed me she can't partake in throwing a couple's shower for financial reasons. I see all of my friends enjoying this part of their life with family and friends and feel a little left out. I know maybe it's selfish because it is our wedding and no one will be as excited as us. But I can't help but feel a little sad. Is this at all normal and what can I do to snap out of it?
