I’m sorry you are feeling this way. I can relate to not being taken seriously. My maid of honor is acting kind of uninterested in the whole event. She got married last year with a simple at home wedding with just family (she actually invited me the day before without any heads up so I couldnt make it). Now she is telling me how she is going to start planning her “real” wedding.

Anyways, I would just say to try to surround yourself with people who actually care about it. This weekend I went to visit my Fiance family and they were SO excited about the whole thing. It made me feel a lot better about the wedding and made me realize who cares about my Maid/Matron of Honor…

I hear you, man. We’ve been engaged for almost two years already, and I’ve taken a lot of crap for starting early. One aunt in particular is just nasty and pretends the wedding’s not going to happen–yuck. You have to ignore these people, though, or they will make you crazy. Also, tell the problem Bridesmaid or Best Man to knock off the eye rolling…or better yet, just don’t talk about the wedding to her.

We have a similar situation, except we were engaged in the winter, so a little longer than you. We both work and go to school full-time, so our days are definitely full. Because of that, we take advantage of school breaks and such to do low-key wedding planning. It really surprises some people, and we’ve had one or two people who can’t believe we’ve even thought about it. But for the most part, we let it roll off our backs. It doesn’t really matter what they think, this is what’s right for us. People make ridiculous judgments all the time, and weddings especially bring that out in people.

Hey month twin!!!! I totally feel you…. Seriously, are we twins??

Here’s my post about my eye-rolling bridesmaid: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/just-another-bm-vent

I try to avoid wedding talk with her altogether… even though she’s usually the one bringing it up. Now I just quickly answer her question and change the topic. I too, told her upfront that I would NOT be offended if she declined being a Bridesmaid or Best Man (she is having financial issues). But… she insisted.

I know it’s hard, but I’m just really trying to not let it bother me (even though it obviously does). The important thing is you are getting married to a great man, for all of the right reasons and who cares what other people think??
