Ok, so I know I shouldn’t expect any of my friends and family to be as excited as I am about my wedding, but it kind of sucks. Most of my close friends are already married, and I remember having the girly moments celebrating their engagement and helping them wedding plan. I don’t think I’m going to get those same experiences now that it’s my turn. My two closest friends are recently pregnant with their 1st kid. I’m super happy for them and have been helping them plan and celebrate this new phase in their life, but it kind of feels like I don’t get to celebrate my life change with my girls because they’re at different stages. My two single friends now live in different countries, so celebrating with them isn’t going to happen. My mother is very excited but I can’t really gush about stuff with her because she’s a bit of a momzilla. I have to be very careful with how I approach wedding stuff with her. Does anyone have experience being the last in your group to get hitched or advice on how to handle it?

I’m sure your friends are very happy for you, but you are right that you shouldn’t expect your friends and famiy to be as excited about your wedding as you are. It’s YOUR wedding. Just focus on you and not what anybody else thinks, says or does.

I don’t have much advice, but I’m in a similar situation where I’m the last one to be in a long term relationship. I met up with my friends the other day and all we talked about was babies as half of them are pregnant haha it was nice to hang out with the girls, but the tone is very different from five years ago when weddings was THE topic.
Anyhoo, it feels like we’re playing a bit of catch up, right? It blows how they can’t be there for you as you were for them, but I’m sure your friends are happy for you and your fiance. If you want to share and post pictures, that’s what this board is for 😀 gush all you want here, we will listen!

I agree you can always share your excitement on the weddingbee boards! I think the engagement and wedding planning will still be fun because you are going to marry your partner!
