Absolutely NOT weird or inappropriate to ask a friend (older or not) to help you and to share moments with you.  I’m sure they will be thrilled, even if you ask them to stand up for you.  I still have my mother but she’s … well she’s my mom, love her to death, but her and I are NOT shopping together lol.  I’ve had my good friend (who’s about a third older than me) help me, honestly I wouldn’t bother with half this stuff without her to help.  She’s my wedding planner and “God of all things girl” lol, because I’m not girly.  She isn’t pushy and honestly wants what will make me happy (even if she things I’m goofy lol) and she’s always throwing things at me I hadn’t thought of.  And she’s the only person I can imagine wanting to go dress shopping with (I’m pretty independent but clueless about dresses lol).

It is NOT selfish and if your friends are anything like my friend they will be overjoyed to help be a part of planning/ being in your day.  Age doesn’t matter with friendships, most of my friends are older too.

ETA: About old souls, I’ve been told I am one countless times.  Which is really funny because I’m a Gemini (the children of universe).  And on the surface I am a playful child, but deep down, I’ve seen so much I felt old compared to my teenage friends years ago.   Even now I have friends 20 years old who say “how did you get so wise?”

As someone who went wedding dress shopping with a very close friend (who just happens to be 2x my age), I can completely recommend it. I went shopping with her for her wedding 8 years ago, and she and her twin daughters went dress shopping with me several months ago. People love shopping for wedding dresses and helping plan a wedding. I had several people offer to accompany me to our cake-tasting appointment if my fiance couldn’t make it. Wink Don’t stress about it. The people who love you will definitely be there for you.
