Wow. She sounds either shallow………or totally clueless. Sorry you feel this way! Just remember it’s all about you and your fiance. Anyone who likes to make people feel like less of a person (sounds like she enjoys it) hs their own issues.

Really you kinda just sound jealous. It sucks they’re getting married before you and you feel she’s the favorite. Those kinds of things can’t be changed. You would want her to wish you well and think positive thoughts about your wedding, yes? So take the high road, wish her well and just focus on your wedding. I mean, really, what else can you do other than make yourself miserable?

I’m sorry you feel this way and that she hasn’t treated you nicely. Just think of it this way though, at least her wedding isn’t a week before yours or anything. Once the wedding passes, people will forget about hers and hopefully look forward to yours! You still have 7 months!

@MrsConnick:  Who wouldn’t be?  A wedding is a huge, special event for any bride.  The OP is clearly getting overlooked and that’s just not fair.

The good thing is that there is plenty of time between your weddings.  Being a June bride myself, I have to say that I think you picked the perfect time of year. You’ll have fabulous weather and plenty of build up to your wedding. 

Since your family is large, you might not know that others are finding the “holier than thou” tedious as well.  They might be keeping their opinions to themselves or the family members with whom they are especially close.  She sounds a little immature with the royal wedding stuff, so perhaps people are just humoring her to stave off a bridezilla attack.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Why did she rush the wedding? With 5 months to plan, she must have been scrambling to find a dress (it seems like most people wait at least 6-9 months for their dresses.

I can definitely understand, I grew up with a couple of cousins who were similarly praised AND cold toward me. It’s really hard to know that you’re not the favourite, and families can be really unnecessarily mean about that stuff. I know it seems like nobody cares about your wedding in lieu of hers, but just try to remember that yours is a LONG time after hers and there’s plenty of space between to build the excitement for your big day.

Like MrsProf said, take the high road and wish her well then focus on your own nuptuals afterward. If your family truly does treat you like this, do you really want those kinds of people suddenly bowing down to you? It’d probably just be weird and uncomfortable. Focus on your fiancé, your immediate family and yourself.

(And maybe block your cousin from appearing on your facebook feed Wink)

@MapleMoose:The other wedding is first. That makes sense to me. Once this wedding is over (and she was within her right to have her wedding when she wanted to) if they then ignore her wedding then sure, she can be upset. But to be upset because they’re focusing on something that is gettting ready to happen now vs 7 months from now seems trivial to me.

Maybe you should develop a “cold” on the day and not be able to attend? I honestly wouldn’t want to go and put on a happy face if you really feel this way…it’s pretty clear that you don’t like her. I understand that!
