- Wedding: June 2014
Note: This is just an observation and what my friend does on her time is not my business; but when I get an email about it, I just want to talk about it lol.
So I have this friend, she’s 2 years younger than me (I’m 22) but we get along really well and she’s one of my 4 bridesmaids. I decided to use Weddington Way for the girls to order Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Anytime some one adds a dress, makes a comment, or likes a dress in the showroom everyone gets an email.
Well a few days ago I recieved an invite to my friends own Weddington Way account. It looked like I was the only one invited and the dresses were exactly the same color and designer that I picked for my wedding. I ASSUMED she was adding dresses for herself to keep track of the ones she likes for my wedding and didnt want to share with my other bridesmaids. Doesn’t seem weird at all.
Well today… The email told me my friend invited 4 other girls to the room as bridesmaid’s and they all started commenting and adding dresses too. Um, so I texted my friend and asked her if something big happened since I saw her last and was she getting married? She said “No, but BF wants to get married in 5 Years and I already know what I want.”
Okay thats’s totally fine, that’s her business and their decision and I think they would be great married in the future, after some growing up (they’ve been together 1 year, but broken up about 5 times and he moved to Colorado without telling her) But, she added my colors and is inviting her mom and her BF’s mom and apparently has set a date for us to buy dresses at the end of next year.
She’s young, not stupid, but I think maybe she’s got the wedding itch. I know how exciting wedding’s are and mine is coming up, so maybe she just wants something big of her own to look forward too. I feel like maybe I should bring her back to reality? I love this girl like a sister, but I feel like she’s doing this and starting to become invested in an idea that’s so far away that I don’t want her to get her heartbroken. Even if this BF breaks her heart, I dont’t want her to start her new relationship with wedding brain, or even if they stay together I don’t want her to let the idea of weddings be her focus.
This was really long. Oops. I’m not going to make this any bigger than it needs to be in her life, so I might mention all of this to her next time we talk. But, I think I’m worried she’s going to accidently push her BF away and I could’ve had a come to Jesus with her and maybe prevented her from ruining something good.
Yeah so anyone who reads this far gets so many kudos.
