- Wedding: April 2011
I’ve been engaged for three weeks. Last week, I was in Arizona, my home state, seeing all my friends and family for the first time since becoming engaged.
Yes, it was a wedding heavy week. Because we’re getting married in AZ, we had to look at venues and book one, talk to DJs, i went dress shopping and my parents had an engagement party. On top of that, we went to a wedding of one of my best friends Saturday night.
This morning, one of my (male) best friends sends me a text that I should stop talking about wedding stuff. That my fiancee seemed to be getting overwhelmed and I burned him (the BF) out on it and it’s not even his wedding (my fiancee asked him to be an usher at my request).
The thing is, we didn’t even see each other all that much. We went out to dinner one night with another engaged couple and after the obligatory “how did he propose” and “where are you having your wedding,” we talked a lot about politics and the economy. I might have talked a lot about my wedding to BF and his girlfriend at the wedding we went to, but it didn’t stand out in my mind. I was on the dance floor for a lot of it.
And on top of that, why is he putting words in my fiancee’s mouth? They’re not friends, so I highly doubt FI confided in him.
The only thing I can think of is that I asked him and his girlfriend when they’re getting married (AFTER he brought it up to me that his mom was asking, too). I said a couple of times that if he didn’t marry her, I’d kill him (best way I knew to express how much I adored her; this was the first time I had spent any real time with her because they live in CA and I live in MD). But BF specifically said FI is overwhelmed/burned out/etc., not really BF.
This is mostly just a vent. I feel really stupid and like one of “those girls” who can’t talk about anything other than her wedding. OTOH, I’m kind of annoyed that he so quickly called me out on it…for god’s sakes, it was the first time we had seen each other since I got engaged! It’s not like he’s been listening to this stuff for months..
