Do you know why your Mon said you couldn’t invite anyone? I knew you’re sad but I’m sure they would have came if they were told in advance. Don’t let your one friend get you down. I personally don’t get excited about other people’s weddings, engagements, baby’s, baby showers, etc. Your friend may be excited bc that’s her family. Also, how do you expect your BM’s to show their excitement? I’m sure they are happt for you.

Sounds like you should be laying this at your Mom’s doorstep not your BMs/friends. Why would she have said that?  Anyway for whatever reason you let it drop with her, I’d stop letting it get to you.  Your friend may be more excited about her cousins wedding because of all the family that is coming into town or because of a whole host of things.  People have short attention spans these days and if they are busy working and have their own lives…. well the first thing they could be excited about, the shower, they were excluded from.  I’d cut them some slack, as it gets closer they will get more excited.

Are your friend’s throwing you a bachelorette party? I understand how you feel about your best friend…I’m somewhat in the same boat as you where my bestie only talks about my upcoming wedding if I bring it up, and I’d certainly like some more enthusiasm from her…but as long as she is there for you when you need her and ask her to help with things, and comes to your wedding,  I would let it go. We don’t always get the reactions we want from people, unfortunately. She could not be bringing up your wedding very much because she figures you’re busy with planning and are stressed and may not want to talk about it all the time? Maybe she’s bringing up her cousin’s wedding a lot as a way of relating? Like I said, I totally understand what you’re going through!
