- Wedding: May 2014 - Beach
I’m not sure what I’m hoping to get by writing this post 🙁 My wedding is in 4 months and I just feel like my friends are not happy for me. They are just not excited about anything. I’m moving in with my FI after the wedding to a new house we recently got and I just got so much to do and none is helping me out. I was there for each and every single one of my friends and helped them a lot prior to the wedding and I didn’t want anything in return it’s just an offer to help would make me feel good because i really do need some help. Maybe not help but a but of emotional support. Has anyone gone through this? Also recenlty (3 weeks ago) my cousin got propsed to, and she is having her wedding in september. Athough i think it’s so early (considering the where on and off before the engagement and not even living togther in the same continent) i always support her. But now it’s like we should have a bridal shower toegther and bachelorette party i just feel like my thunder had been stolen. I ‘ve waited for the past 5 years for this day to be my special day , but now it’s all about her and i’m just feeling really left alone

@myweddingbee: I am sorry that you are feeling low. Have you actually asked your friends specificially for help? Maybe they dont know how to help you with the new house? You could call them up and ask if they can come along and help painting for example.
As for your cousins’ engagememt. Her wedding is almost 4 months after yours. I dont see why combining bridal shower and the likes, would make any sense. Unless you want those to be celebrated together.
I hope you feel better soon!

I’ve been in the same situation, always there for them, but when its something exciting for you, it seems they don’t care. The only conclusion I’ve ever come to is jealousy. Just keep your chin up and know you’ll get through it, as much as it sucks.
As for your cousin, its not very fair for you. I wouldn’t share my shower or b-party with her just because that is YOUR time to feel special and I’m sure she’d feel the same way. Maybe talk to your cousin and just simply let her know that you want your time to be the bride, just like she should have hers. That way you’ll both have those special events specifically for each of you.
Just a few thoughts, hope everything works out!
