So I never expect my wedding to be a priority in other ppls lives and I know theres a lot going on in the world but it would be nice if a little bit of interest was shown sheesh.
My wedding was supposed this past Saturday and I finally got and confirmed the new date for the wedding. I only told my wedding party and my immediate family at first (my parents and sister and 1 aunty who lives in the same city as me). I already had my new invitation ready to go (im sending e-invites) so I decided to invite all of my out of state family. I texted about 8ppl on Saturday and at first no one texted me back, but then 1 aunty finally responded but thats still 1 out of 8. I texted them on Saturday and still no response. It WOULD have been nice if they were to send kind words like hey sorry today would have been your wedding day but keep ur head up or something.
I know ppl have their own lives and they get busy but At the bare minimum I would like at least an acknowledgment that they received my text. And these are not just older ppl like my Aunty and Uncles these are also my young cousins who are my age and slightly younger (age 23-30) who are freaking posting on instagram but have no decency to respond to a text message!
This is the same side of my family (probably about 15ppl in total my Indian side of the family is actually pretty small) who didnt bother to rsvp or at least tell me they weren’t coming (this was back when my rsvps were due before state shutdowns started happening and before things escalated). When I asked my aunty she said hmm she doesn’t know how things are going to go, things are still up in the air. And I completely understand that but all i wanted was a yes or no. Like you live Out Of State. You either will plan to buy a plane ticket or ur not. Of course I didn’t say that at the time but I told her to let me know what her final decision was because we will need a guestcount. Her response was “ah for the sake of the guestcount”. Yess I believe that is the EXACT point of the RSVP is to know whos coming and get a guestcount, its a freaking wedding hellooo.
And my closest cousin who told me she had received my wedding invitation but didn’t open if for a whole month. The same cousin who is constantly on instagram (more than my other cousins) Who had the nerve to ask me if she could be our DJ because shes working on her DJ skills (she was never a dj before) but when I previously asked her to simply put together a playlists for my January bridal shower with Indian songs she left me in the dust.
Im just venting is all. My family is so small on my Indian side you would think they would care or show any interest. Im the first niece to get married. I will barely have any family at my wedding compared to FH. My moms side of the family is huge but none of them will travel. Its just really annoying, many ppl are attached to their phones and cant simply return a text message.
