I’ve been feeling a bit bridezilla-ish because I found out that my fiance’s cousin (who just got engaged) is getting married at the place of my dreams! We looked at it but the family ixnay’d the place because it has a tent. We live in the Northeast and obviously the weather is always unpredictable.
I love our location that we ended up with (it was a tie with this place) but the other place would have been gorgeous as well.
I guess I’m just feeling a bit jealous! Also, we have 5 weddings next year that are all family weddings that happen before ours!
Does anyone else feel a bit put out when others are getting married close to when you are?

Have you thought about moving the date…maybe this yr or the following yr?! I know its a bit extreme but 5 weddings is alot!! Or just do something CRAZY and DIFFERENT to set it apart fro the rest!!

I was going to say the same thing about waiting… You’ll be going to these other weddings, right? It will get you a chance to really plan and set your s apart. 5 weddings is a lot – not to mention a huge strain on mutual guests!

Luckily I’m getting married in September, they are all between March & June!
And I guess I”m lucky that none of them are getting married where I am.
I meant to post this under emotional, not waiting… as I am engaged!

Aww, I’m sorry, hun! These things happen, and you have every right to feel jealous, so long as you don’t act jealous, right? 🙂 Jealousy is natural, and eventually, you’ll get over it.
As a bride who had been planning her wedding for months when another family member decided to get engaged AT our engagement party and plan their wedding THREE WEEKS before ours, I can honestly attest to how you feel. But this is what got me through: No matter what, every wedding is different. Different colors, dresses, flowers, programs, music, details, etc. Even if you have two weddings at one location, what each bride does with it will be completely different. Just think of ways to personalize your wedding and make it truly reflect you and your future husband, and don’t worry about anythig else 🙂

Two of my best friends are getting married next year… one of them has been dating her boy for 3 months and the other is old enough to be my mom (it’s her second marriage) but I’m still feeling put off by it. It’s silly because they are both SO happy, and none of us are actually engaged yet but still… jealousy rears its ugly head because their boyfriends are not as… cautious… as mine!

5 weddings, wow! It’s good that your wedding is in September and everybody will have a chance to recover and have a breather. And your location will be gorgeous, I’m sure.
