I was shocked by the reactions of two friends whom I thought were really close.
One sounded like she couldn’t care less and then said, behind my back, that weddings such as mine end in divorce (me and my FI have known each other 6 months).
The other barely says a positive thing abut my engagement and simply criticises my decision to get married, and when I gave her 7 months notice of my wedding date, she said she wasn’t sure if she could make it given its a Friday… this is someone who is meant to be a good friend.

@Glittergirl_2013: Jealousy and insecurity can rear it’s head when wedding planning. I saw it in my own wedding. It can come in the form of mocking, being overly critical and rude, or just being plain mean.
My DH and I were together for four months before we decided to get married. We did the ‘courtship” route ala the Duggar family vs tradition dating. We have been happily married 11 months. I know my former teacher married her husband after 3 weeks and they’ve been married 20 years!
As long as you two feel it’s right and you do premaritial couseling, go for it.
That being said, they sound jealous. Ignore them and enjoy your future DH. Plan your wedding, send them invites ifyou want to, and concentrate on the good.
