I just got engaged and it was amazing! I am so excited to start planning my wedding and i thought that everyone would be happy to. I mean my mother and I have talked about this day coming for years now. I have so many ideas of things that i want or think i might want and everytime i try and talk to my mom about them she doesnt seem very intrested. It is making me so mad all i want is somebody to be excited with me. Then to top it off my best friend who is going to be my maid of honer who has been with her man for almost six years is making me feel bad for showing off my ring and being all excited when people tell me congrates. She keeps saying she is so happy for me but i can tell she is mad as hell that she is still waiting for her man to pop the question. So now I feel bad if I go out with her to look at thing or ask for ideas because her whole personality changes everytime me getting married comes up. i feel like my bubble was completely burst. Im not asking anything from anyone except for people to be excited with me i mean is it really that much?

I’m excited for you!!! Congrats!! Sometimes when you get engaged you have to keep these things in mind:
A) Almost EVERY girl wants to be in your shoes. So your Maid/Matron of Honor is probably more than a little jealous. Thankfully she seems to be trying her best to put on a happy face. My best friend (also my MOH) just got broke up with her Boyfriend or Best Friend a few months before I got engaged (they would have probably gotten engaged around when I did if they hadn’t broken up…) and even though I know how hard it is for her to be in “wedding mode” with me, she’s tried very hard not to let that ruin things. Try telling your Maid/Matron of Honor how much you appreciate her, spend some occasional no-wedding-talk-allowed “girl time” with her and see if that helps!
B) No one is as excited as you are about your wedding. After a while, most people get sick of hearing about it. As harsh as it is, it’s probably the most true. :/ You just gotta deal with it and try to keep in mind that you are about to marry the man of your dreams and try and stay positive. 🙂
C) Weddings are hard for parents. As excited as your mom probably is, it’s not easy coming to terms with your daughter moving out (Maybe your case?) and beginning a life of her very own. I know my own mom goes through a whirlwind of emotions just about every day. 🙂 I’m sure your mom is going through that as well. If you really feel like it’s an issue, talk to her. Maybe not “Mom, why aren’t you more excited?!” but something that allows her to express her true feelings, whatever they may be. 🙂 Getting her involved can help too. 🙂
Good luck with everything! I really hope I have helped, even if it’s just a little! Congrats again!! Enjoy being engaged, because trust me, it just FLIES by. 🙂
