Insane!  Sorry you have to go through this… do not tell either of them any more details about who you’re booking/what you’re doing.  If it makes you feel the least bit better, it sounds like you guys have a stable relationship, while theirs is not destined to last or be happy.

@Birdiebaby4:  Stop sharing any information about your wedding.

Wowzers…neither person in the other couple sounds like they really want to be married, they are just desperate to have a wedding and show off. Where is the fun in wedding planning if its all so competitive with people you will end up spending a lot of time with?! 

I agree with your plan, don’t tell them anything else! And at least now you know he’s starting to stand up to her and that you have your mutual bridesmaid on your side if she gets too crazy! 

Best of luck with the rest of planning!

I don’t really get why you guys would want to be friends with someone who calls everything you want stupid and insists on marrying a total b**** just to one-up you.

Other than that I have no advice =( My DH and I would have stopped being friends with them long ago.

@Birdiebaby4:  Whenever you have to be with her/ her FI don’t mention anything about your wedding and tell your FI not to either. If she asks about anything just tell her you haven’t decided yet and let her be crazy all by herself.

@Birdiebaby4:  I pity the other couple. How long are they going to be in a one-upping competition? Are they going to get pregnant because you guys got pregnant? I hope you haven’t told her anything about you dress.

In a previous thread another bride was having similar issues and I advised her to feed them wrong information. I got flamed for that by another bee. I’d still feed them wrong information though e.g. “I’m getting a $8000 dress!!!”

Just stop talking to them about the wedding in any way, shape, or form. If they bring it up, change the subject.

Yeah, if you absolutely have to be around them I would just act like “what wedding?” LOL. Seriously though, I wouldn’t even want to hang out with those two at this point. I know your FI is friends with this guy, but is it really worth all the stress if this woman is going to be around for “forever?”

you need to distance yourself from these people as much as possible!
