Lucky you, but so absolutely wonderful to see that you are embracing this so well. Some girls get so uptight about the spotlight being off of them, but they forget it’s not about the spotlight, it’s about becoming man and wife. It’s refreshing to see someone excited for another! Wish I had an engaged friend to go wedding crazy with, only local friend I have had her boyfriend dump her a week before I became engaged.

My fiance asked me to marry him literally 15 minutes before she and I met up. I wanted to tell her but found myself the entire time trying to hide my e-ring so I didn’t depress her, she still doesn’t know. Everyone else does though.

Enjoy it, have a wonderful time, is she on the bee too? If not you should tell her all about it, it’s a great place to get all the wedding craze out 🙂

I would LOVE for my best friend to get engaged around the same time as me! That would be awesome!

That would be so fun! One of my fiance’s friends is about to propose to his girlfriend and I am SO excited!

Gah I am so glad to hear that!!!! I was scared when I read the title lol. My best friend got engaged 3 weeks after my wedding, so she was with me through all my crazy wedding experience, and now I’m going go to be doing it all over again! I am pumped! =)

My friend and I got engaged within a month and a half of each other. She is getting married June 2nd, and I am getting married October 6th. It’s been amazing to have someone else going through this with me. She is having a rustic wedding and mine is much more formal, so we also get to plan both kinds of weddings!!

My fiance’s brother got engaged about 7 months after us, and its been so wonderful to share these expereicnes with my future SIL! She’s become such a wonderful friend to me over the last few years- she just asked me last night to be a bridesmaid!  I’m happy that you get those moments, too!

Sometimes we can get so caught up in the drama of the planning that you need someone that understands what we’re going thru right that SECOND.  And to talk us off the ledge 😉

Congrats!

Love it! It’s so nice to hear that you are excited and enjoying this with your friend. Someone else said it, but I will reiterate…it is SO refreshing that you aren’t one of those girls who get all upset and accuse their friends of “stealing their thunder!” I have a great friend getting married a month before me (and she was engaged a few months before I was) and we have had nothing but fun bouncing ideas off of each other during the planning process. We have been careful to plan our events on non-conflicting days so we can both be there for the other and none of our friends have to choose. It’s definitely more fun to have a partner in crime! 🙂
