Maybe she assumes you’ve got all the important stuff down since your wedding is in two weeks. That’s cutting it kind of close for the planning/securing phase IMO.

@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:  I don’t think that she is doing any of this with malicious intent, but probably more out of just because selfish & self absorbed.

I feel horrible that you are going through this though 🙁

Honestly I don’t think I would say anything now, because chances are she is going to be upset & things will be made worse for you.

I totally get why you would WANT to say something, but I’m not sure if it will accomplish what you are hoping, & it may instead cause some issues for you so close to your big day.

Hang in there, & make yourself feel special. Totally accept that spotlight & be the amazing bride you have always dream of without shame. If I have one regret it was not really drinking in the experience of being the bride, because I’m just not that type of person. But, you only get to play that role once, so ROCK IT! 🙂

Just like you she is excited to plan her wedding. This has nothing to do with stealing anyones thunder (unless she shows up in her wedding dress at your wedding) or jealousy (why would she be jealous? she is getting married too).

What is she like as a friend in a normal situation? Does she change the topic to her and her life? If so then why did you expect anything different? People’s personalities do not change just because you are getting married.

If she isn’t normally like this then I think it is just a case of she is excited to plan her weding becuase it is new and she probably thinks you would be a good person to run things by because you have just spent months planning your wedding.

The thing you need to remember is that your expectations are not anyone elses. Your priorities and not anyone elses priorities. The sooner you accept that the less disappointed you will be in other people and their actions.
