So my dad is deceased and my mom is not a part of my life anymore (by her choosing). Both sides of the family are flaky and without spilling all of my family drama, I was not blessed with the best parents. When the time came to figure out who would walk me down the aisle, I was sort of at a loss. FI suggested my uncle (dad's brother). He and I were close when I was a child so it wasn't tooooo far fetched. So, I asked sometime before Thanksgiving and he said he'd be glad to. His wife and I had been trying to schedule a time for us all to have dinner so they could meet FI and all, but it never came to fruition.
Then yesterday, he leaves me a message (a FB post of all things) to let me know he was backing out. He said it was just going to "cost too much", which is just bull. I had told him he didn't have to rent a suit and could just wear slacks. And since they live about 2 hours away, I'd said they could just come for the day of and skip the rehearsal. So.... what cost? Besides gas.... are me and my wedding day not worth a tank of gas?
It's so hard to feel like the people who are supposed to be your family don't even love you enough to support you in one of the most important days of your life. Uuuuuugh! I am just mad... and my heart is hurting... It just shouldn't be this hard...
On top of that, I don't like the idea of walking alone... But i don't really have anyone else to ask... FI said I should walk alone since I am the one who got myself to this point (crappy parents, non-existant family and dealing with trials of life on my own) Makes sense, but I'm not crazy about the idea.
