My older sister is my Maid of Honor, at first I know she was as excited as me but now I’m not so sure. I think she is over all the wedding talk…but I just can’t help it lol. Anyone else experiencing this? (I also think it might be hitting her hard b/c she is the oldest of the 3 sisters and I’m the youngest – plus she broke up with her long term Boyfriend or Best Friend last year…) I don’t want to make her feel bad, I am just excited.

I think you should maybe lay off the wedding talk with your sister if you can sense she’s kind of over it for now. Just obsess all day on WeddingBee like us and give the people in your life a break from wedding talk. It’s funny because I’m on WB so much talking wedding stuff that my Maid/Matron of Honor and my friends are like “WTF you never talk about the wedding! what’s going on? what have you done?” and I’m like LOL if they only knew…

I have some BMs who are not into wedding talk for various reasons. I wish they were all into it at least half as much as I am, but I don’t think that’s realistic to expect. I just try to talk to a lot of different people about the wedding, a bit at a time, rather than just having one person to share everything with.

I’m in the same situation, kind of! My sister is planning our wedding, and she is the oldest of 3 girls, i’m the baby, and she has been wanting to get married for a long time, and has been with her bf a lot longer than me! So, we talk about it a lot, and she is always really helpful and excited, but sometimes I feel really bad about it. Then, I turn to other friends who aren’t apart of the wedding, or my mom, or my SO, or wedding bee! I’ve found that it helps that I do a lot of planning and prepping and stuff, then go to her all at once with multiple things instead of turning to her for every little thing. It gives her a break, but you still get to plan all the time 🙂

I will tell you it can be hard. My sister – who is my best friend and also my Maid/Matron of Honor – has been seperated from her husband for a year AND has JUST decided to divorce him after the holidays. I really REALLY wanted to spout off to her about the wedding, but I have, instead been obsessing over Weddingbee…
And it has worked. We are going dress shopping on Sunday and my sister is really ramped up to talk to me about the wedding, has asked me to bring my wedding notebook and can’t wait to see me until my dress – can’t wait to look through my wedding notebook, in fact we are going to breakfast with the other girls first to do all that.
And after that day I probably wont mention it for awhile again, that way when SHE wants to talk about it she will be REALLY into it.

I felt the same way – although i dont know what my sister and mom’s problem was since both are married. they did get offended when i wanted to include FH in some of the planning. so instead of gushing to them over wedding stuff and having them respond less than enthusiasticly, i basically gush here and send them periodic emails that they can choose to ignore.
