I finally started planning our wedding. Ordered his ring. Two days ago I am pretty sure I found my dress. Started talking to vendors. So why am I sad? Because neither of my parents are being supportive. They actually acted like they had no idea I was planning a wedding. As a side note to this I have been engaged for 5 years and we knew we wanted a long engagement but it was never "not happening" as they keep saying. I don't understand why someone would want to kill a person they loves happiness. We are 2 consenting adults. I have not and will not ask them for a dime for the wedding. Part of it is because I am divorced but I also don't get why anyone would not want me to be happy. I was so excited when I saw this particular dress and my mom tore me down so quickly. The cost (it is not expensive for Boston at all), the cost of a venue we are talking to which is also quite a deal. Didn't matter what it was she had something negative to say. I have waited a long time to really be happy with someone and I am just sad that my family would choose to be miserable. I have asked nothing of them except support but that is too much to ask.
Thanks for letting me rant. Just needed to get it out instead of eating.
