I just want to know what gives. Last year my uncle married courtney and she was the one planning the wedding. She decided to have the wedding on August 7th, the day before mine and my uncle's birthday as well as the day OF my dad's birthday. What further offended me was that when we brought this to her attention she IGNORED the comment, didn't come to my birthday party the next day, and didn't give me a birthday present although they normally do. Meanwhile I had to shell out for a shower gift, wedding present, and miss out on being able to have a party with my friends. I mean she totally could have smoothed things over when they did all the toasts during the reception but she didn't.
Now, this year my husband's cousin is also getting married the day before my birthday. I am sorely tempted not to be in attendance because of how this makes me feel. I mean, honestly when I planned my wedding it wasn't on anybody else's birthday and if I had done that I would have at least agknowledged it. I just feel jipped. I mean it was a bigger deal last year because it was my 21st birthday and I couldn't even drink at the reception. But this seems like a pattern. How do I address this so it doesn't happen to me again?!
