I’ve always envisioned having an amazing wedding day with the one I love, surrounded by our friends and family who would ideally be genuinely happy for us. Since getting engaged, I’ve had to detach from this dream once I saw people’s true natures come forward throughout the planning process. I’m at the point where my fiancé and I don’t even want to have a wedding (it’s 10 months away) and we accepted we’re only doing this to please everyone else. No one seems to care that we’re even engaged, no one has offered to help with planning or throwing us any sort of celebration in any way, there are close family members who haven’t even congratulated us to this day. Aside from that, drama has already occurred in the form of power struggles when it comes to decisions that are only mine and my fiancés to make for our wedding day. We are the ones paying for it, yet family members feel entitled to dictate certain significant aspects of it and are willing us to fight over it. I’m exhausted. I can’t even enjoy being engaged to the love of my life. We’ve booked and paid for a venue and all the vendors but are highly considering canceling it all and doing what we truly want: having it be just the two of us. I WANT to be excited for our big day, and our venue is lovely. But it feels fake and forced now. Advice?
