i just got engaged and I’ve been trying to enjoy every moment. I’m thankful to have a FH that is loving and supportive. 

Only thing making me sad is a friend who I’ve known for awhile who has been passing snarky comments and acting like a third grader. It’s juvenile and frankly a waste of her time and effort. But I suppose I shouldnt expect others to act how I thought they would act: happy for us. Everyone has their own insecurities and jealousies. And I like what bridepower said: “The emotion of envy is fine, but ACTING IT OUT with hostility is not.”

I’m so glad to have found this thread and other brides-to-be who are going through the same thing. Thanks for all the words of encouragement and positivity. Hugs all around! 🙂

@blakebee:  Honestly, I wound up having to cut a certain jealous so-called “friend” of mine (who was actually supposed to be my maid of honor) out of my life.  Long story short, I had enough of her negativity, nastiness, and her attempts to stop me from getting married just because she was wedding-obsessed herself and didn’t want me to get married before her.  I don’t think jealousy is a sufficient excuse for the way she was treating me and I was sick of it.  I just don’t need it in my life.  Besides, a true friend ought to be happy for you and support you!

Ugh, friggen women eh.

I think some women are more concentrated on the wedding itself versus the actual marriage, so when they do get married and thier party is over they are bitter about the reality of thier situation.  Maybe your friends see how happy you actual are and are not happy themselves.
