There were times when I felt really lonely because none of my bridesmaids live in the same city as me, they are all 2+ hours away. It wasn’t so much that I was sad that they couldn’t help, but that I was sad that they weren’t there to talk to. Sure, we talked on the phone and would FaceTime, but it wasn’t the same as being in the same room. They were excited for me and WANTED to help and be involved, it was just hard since they were so far away. Although I will say I still feel lonely, even now that the wedding is over. I just miss hanging out with my friends!

@cupcakesESQ:  Kinda the same boat… I am an only child and my cousin will be being my moh but she is also 2 other ppls moh who asked her 1st lol busy girl lol … plus she is busy with work her and her bf are buying a house just lots going on 

my best friend found out she was preg right when i found out about my SO wanting to marry me lol … so when I tried to be happy it quickly shifted to baby baby baby … witch is great i am so happy for her I was her MOH though and she owned every weekend for a year so i kinda had hoped she be here for me she can’t be though I get it … my other bestie had a 2 year old and is a single mom so i can’t reall depend on her to travelt ome with him find care for him and drop things for me i get that too 

SO here i am doing alot of planning alone hell even my SO said just tell me where and when he gave me free rain lol its good and bad at the same time …

@cupcakesESQ:  It’s not that it never went away, it just comes and goes. If you are wanting help with ideas, you could make a wedding board on Pinterest and add them so that they can pin to it as well! I did that and it was fun. :] Although if you do that make sure your friends turn OFF the email notifications for the board or it will email them every single time you pin something… I learned that the hard way haha. Apparently my MOH got around 20 emails in a very short amount of time one night… Oops! :]

But ya, living so far from my friends is a definite bummer. Makes me wish we were all still in college! We do try to make an effort to visit each other as often as we can. Just wish it was more often and for longer! I’m also not so good at making new friends, but I’m trying. It’s just difficult because I am a teacher so everyone at school is basically 10 years older than me, or more.

Hopefully your loneliness will get better after the wedding because you will be less stressed!

@cupcakesESQ:  I’m one of the first of my friends to get married, so I will try to keep that in mind and make sure to make lots of friend time! I had an hour long conversation with one of my best friends tonight, and it was sooo good for me! :]

I don’t think it’s karma, I just think that unfortunately stuff comes up sometimes. Hopefully things will calm down and you will have more time for friends soon. Wedding planning takes up a lot of time, I’m sure when it’s done it will be better. :]

@cupcakesESQ:  I don’t know how that works i never done it b4, I would think if you just nicely explain the moh title goes to who ever can be with me mroe and she love her want her in your party you need to have a moh who can be helping you cuz there is alot of work I am sure she will understand 

 

Ya my SO kinda just does not plan he had me pick paint colours and stuff, he just wants me to be happy he pretty ez going he normaly always happy with what ever I plan… and he really isn’t good for brides maid styles lol i know come food time he will want in he is a foodie lol 

 

Ya I know what you mean about some ppl who are single getting a lil bothered … for me it was my aunt though … she and my mom are in hate with each other she very nasty to my mom and me to get at my mom 

one day she said after not seeing me for a bit “Oh you 2 are still together”, I said shocked “YES?!” my mom added “they are engaged” my aunt added with a laugh and an eye roll “Oh it’s not like she hasn’t been engaged b4 lets not get carried away with this engagment thing” 

I just about went thru the roof i didnt say a word i smiled and changed the subjet … but i cant stand envy making people say things like that (i was enaged when i was 21 but I was to young i am now 27) 

some ppl just get hateful when others get happy

I have a couple of people here I can be excited about my wedding with but no one super close… Then I have a few closer friends back home who are also getting married a few months apart before my wedding so I feel like mine isn’t as important (I know, no one cares as much as you about your own wedding…) and also I feel like FI isn’t being as pro-active with planning (I’m sending him e-mails to review and he’s looking at sports stats) so I am in a huge mood this morning over it all.  It sucks, I’m sorry sweetie. *hugs*
