I’m generally quite an emotional girl and also easily get stressed..and well, I’m feeling a bit down today. I’m basically feeling a bit guilty about not having much time for my friends (who are also my bridesmaids) to hang out and do non-wedding stuff. Any of you ever feel like this? I mean we meet up and we have done some wedding stuff but some stuff I need to do alone or with my fiance and I feel like a bad friend for not having much time to spend with them. It’s just there’s only about 10 weeks til my wedding and I am just so busy with appointments & to do lists! Any of you ever feel like this?

Are any of them married or planning a wedding? None of my friends had, and they couldn’t understand how much was really involved until I was planning. I know you only have a few weeks left, but maybe you can carve out half a day to spend with them, sans wedding planning? I think you all would appreciate the breather. I know I needed it!!

No I think that is part of the problem, none of them (the particular ones I’m feeling guilty about) are married or planning a wedding and they are finding it hard to understand why I am always so busy..I have made a big effort to fit in catch ups and nights with them when I can maybe every 3 weeks or so, and also do an exercise class with another once a week. We chat daily, but sometimes one of them makes comments that slightly hurt my feelings and make my feel/guilty more stressed..like ‘surely it can’t take every night to plan a wedding’ or ‘it’s only day – how much can you plan for a day’..I find it upsetting as there’s just so much to do that you don’t think of unless you are in the process yourself. I’ve tried explaining but am also conscious of not wanting to go on and on about the wedding planning when we do meet up! Thanks for your advice x
