Wow! No wonder you needed to vent! I’m really sorry to hear your friend is acting that way. I mean, I can understand her right to be upset (personally, I think it’s a dumb reason, but she’s entitled to her feelings), but she shouldn’t be going around sharing her disappointment with the world!

I guess there’s not much you can do about it, though. I suppose comments like “It’s not a race,” or something along those lines might help her calm down, or perhaps just make a joke of it “How about you show up in a dress too, and we’ll make it a double wedding?”

sounds pathetic!!!! sorry for booking a date that suited us as a couple, that just happens to be before you want to set your date! like wtf?? is she jealous that you got a big proposal? or maybe she cant afford to get married yet so shes angry that you are able to get married? whatever the reason, friends are supposed to be HAPPY for other friends regardless. she sounds immature to me. congrats on setting your wedding date!

didnt realise setting a wedding date your meant to wait for every other engaged couple to set theirs first if they got engaged before u. :S

Isn’t it strange that as an upcoming bride herself, she forgets how hard it can be to choose the right date?

3 of our girls have been down the aisle and just checking with all the VIPS to be sure they are available as well as the vendors you want – well that is no small task!  My girls have had to deal with 3 sets of parents (we are a blended family) for each wedding.  That’s a lot of VIP’s to have available.

Every couple has to choose a date that works for them as well as those they want to attend.  I am always amazed at the girls who think – OMG, I was engaged before they were!!!  They can’t get married before I do…   

Don’t worry about your friend.  Let it roll off your back.  It is only your issue if you choose to accept it, and it isn’t worth your time.

Good luck!

This ‘friend’ has attention and jealousy issues and frankly, she’s really not a true friend if she’s enjoying being candy towards your wedding in ANY way. Who cares?! Really, truly, you had every right to set your date for whenever you wanted and she needs to own up to adulthood and get over it. Children are starving around the world and she’s whining about a friend getting married before her. Shaking my head at this lackluster, caddy girl.

@mousebride:  This happened to me too, on my last birthday night out incidenatlly. FI’s closest girl mate had been drinking, and kind of went off on one. I am one of the insanely lucky one’s (and i know it!) because my parent’s are paying for almost everything: they’re really traidtional and believe it’s the bride’s parent’s job. They’d never let me pay for my wedding. I know a lot of people aren’t as lucky as me in that respect though. Anyway, she’s been engaged for 3 years, and has no date yet, both her and her Fiance are unemployed, and so are their families. I told her she could get married for around £700, but she wants to wait until they can afford their dream. That’s her decision, so why complain? All it did was upset me and my Fiance. We don’t love eachother any less than them, just because we’ve been together less time.
