So I've never really liked my fiance's family very much (his sister is really competitive, always trying to one-up us, and his mom always has something negative to say), but they were so excited when we got engaged, and I thought that it would be a chance to get closer with them through planning the wedding. Over the past couple of months, I've tried to ask his mother and sister to help with some of the planning process, like going dress shopping, picking flowers and the cake, and invitations, and they always have an excuse for why they can't help or come to any of the meetings with vendors. I thought they would be happy to help and be a part of my wedding, but it just seems like they don't care...
I don't even really want to ask his sister to be a bridesmaid now, because she probably won't want to do anything anyway!
I really don't know what to do about this, and I just wan them to understand that they're going to be family, so they should be a part of this too!
Have you had to deal with totally unhelpful family members? What should I do???
