I’m so sorry 🙁 So your Fiance doesnt want you to talk about it to his family, but what about to him when it’s just you two? Honestly I would still keep quietish about it but I would start planning with my maids and my family, it is understandable that you both want to protect your FSILs wedding but I feel you might be dissappointed if when it is your time they wont be as excited because, usually, families are more excited when daughters get married than when sons do. But I dont see why you can’t be excited with your family/friends and look at venues and take your Fiance but still keep it quiet around his family, because hey it is your day too!!! Whenever his family asks you guys what plans you have you can mention that you did some planning but didnt make a big deal about it because you were very excited about your FSILs wedding and wanted her to have her moment.

@ThePhilosophersOldLady:  aww hugs. I can totally relate. i understand it hard to remember you have every right to be excited about your own wedding too without feeling bad about “upstaging” anyone else.

my Fiance has two younger siblings, 1 sister who is my age and 1 brother who is 2 yrs younger than me. they BOTH got engaged literlly within 8 months of my engagement. The Future Sister-In-Law got engaged in another state and the family dont really like her fi, but shes their only daughter so i feel like my future parents IL care about hers more than their eldest sons (my fi) wedding. And my Future Brother-In-Law made a HUGE she-bang for his proposal amazing race scavenger hunt thing too, whereas my fi had a little intimate midnight proposal (I was actually so sad about this i made a thread about it). They dont care about upstaging us, so why should i take caution upstaging them? it was extra hard for my because my FBILs fi is actually my bestie and bm. So wedding talk now between us is hard to balance planning mine and planning hers (even tho hers is 2 yrs after mine).

i dont know if im helping at all but just letting you know, you always have somewhere to vent here on the Bee and know you are not alone in feeling these Bridal Blues – i still go thru stages of these on and off. It helps knowing  that even strangers online can relate and always willing to listen. All the best sweets <3 just remember your wedding is more special to you than anyone so make it so (:
