I’ve been engaged for a month now and I am pretty disappointed by what I perceive as my sister’s lack of interest in the wedding.
For a little background, my sister and I are SUPER close. We’ve daydreamed together about our weddings forever. Before I found Fiance we use to joke that I would have a wedding themed birthday party since we daydreamed about it so much. Now, I’ve been engaged a month and she has asked about the wedding maybe twice. Both times were in passing via text message.
I have to say I’m pretty surprised by this. Part of me wants to let her know how I’m feeling but the other part is not sure if I’m overreacting.
What say you, bees?

i was surprised by my whole family’s lack of interest. then i realized they ARE interested. theyre just not calling me every day bc they have their own lives lol. any time i ask for help or bring it up they are always interested and ask questions. i think ur sister just might not know what to ask, but it doesnt mean she isnt thinking about it and excited for it!

Could it be that she is a bit jealous? You said you daydreamed about your weddings together, and now you are getting married and she isn’t. Maybe she feels a bit bummed about this but doesn’t want to show it, so she tries to avoid the topic?

@AprilJo2011: I don’t know. She’s been married before. She’s older than me. I just don’t know what she would be jealous about.
Perhaps flyingpig is right. Maybe she doesn’t know what to say. But in the past, we’ve had conversations, exchanged inspiration, etc. freely. Earlier today, someone asked me how the wedding planning was going in her presence and she didn’t add anything to that conversation. Aside from laughing when I joked we were going to forget the whole thing and go to Vegas.
