    yes, others are jealous

    No I don't think they are

    Other people suggest this to me

    I'm not sure if it's jealousy but I think it is

    Jealousy factor is overblown/hyped up

    Other I will explain below

    I definately think the whole jealousy thing is hugely over used. Just because there is conflict or people aren’t agreeing with each other, doesn’t mean one of them is jealous. Usually there is a much more rational reason for people to act the way they do, then them being jealous.

    I think it is a very, very rare occasion that someone is actually jealous of someone else’s wedding.  People just create this idea in their head because it is easier to think “Oh, she’s just jealous” than to deal with the actual problem at hand.

    The second that anyone disagrees with anything the bride says, that person is automatically labelled as “jealous”, which is ridiculous.  Say, maybe they just don’t actually LIKE your dress/venue/ring/whatever.  Obviously they should have the tact to keep it to themselves, but I think the term “jealous” is thrown around haphazardly to explain away any behaviour that doesn’t fit in with the bride’s ideals and expectations of people.

    I can confess to being jealous of brides with larger budgets, even my friends who are also wedding-planning.  Or whose families are contributing more, or where groom’s families pay for the honeymoon, etc.  I had to stop reading those “how much are you paying for your wedding” threads because they were making me crazy, haha.

    But yeah I don’t think random people are jealous of the fact that you’re getting married, that’s so silly.

    I think the whole attitude of jealousy and the “oh dear, it’s okay, she’s just jealous!” thing is an overblown, sugar coated response to the fact that some people just don’t like you or your things. Not everyone loves, respects, and adores all of each other’s choices and actions.

    ETA: Not “you” as in the OP, but anyone. Lol 🙂

    I think the whole jealousy thing is overused.

    I only know one person who is legit jealous of me and that’s because she wants my FH and she has always had some kind of competition with me? Like she likes to gloat that she’s been living with her boyfriend longer and she keeps harassing me for a wedding date so she can set hers before me. It’s childish and I don’t play into it, but that’s the only tine jealousy had been a real thing.

    I’m sure sometimes jealousy is a factor, but not the extreme that some people assume. It kind of irks me seeing “MOH is being weird lately, is she jealous of me?”

    Maybe try considering the fact that there might be other factors in her life causing her to be weird, don’t automatically assume it’s because she’s hating on the fabulousness that is your life.

    I was upset when my my best friend got engaged…it had nothing to do with me being jealous of her  wedding. It’s because I really don’t care for her now husband and was sad she was making this huge mistake marrying him.

    @KatyElle:  Yup.

    I actually find this automatic reaction rather high-schoolish (aka emotionally immature) and egocentric. 

    I agree it is possible to have an issue with something that is not at all tied to jealousy. I can quite honestly say anytime I ever “questioned” someones choices regarding an engagement, wedding or marriage it has never been out of jealousy and definitely not out of wanting to be “them”! It has usually been more of a “what the f*** are they thinking?”!
