Maybe yoy are too understanding. You have a few months to go. Maybe they will be more excited once the date is closer and they can’t avoid thinking about their parts in your wedding.

Do you have any other friends or family members who are also engaged?  I had some friends who were engaged at the same time as me and we talked about our weddings a lot.  We traded ideas back and forth and sought each others opinions.  That was great because other brides are alway willing to talk weddings, and it stopped me from boring the other people in my life with wedding talk.

I’m sorry you aren’t getting the support and excitement you deserve.  I do think you should talk to your finace about it.  At the very least he should be sharing in your excitement.

Sorry it seems that everyone you care about is uninterested in your big day.  Being an older bride (I was 39), most of my friends weren’t into the details, nor was my husband.  I, was however, lucky enough to have a Mom that loved the planning process.  

Feel free to share with me!  Can I help you in anyway?  I LOVE weddings!  Smile

I could have written your post!!!  I’ve found that just reading the boards here and interacting has really helped.  I am sorry you feel that way, it’s no fun.

First off, welcome to the hive!  This is the place to be, to release your frustrations.  Planning a wedding is certainly not easy, and it’s so comforting to have other brides here to help with being interested in your wedding.  I think the hardest thing to remember is that not all of our BMs are in relationships or marriages (making them slightly sad for themselves), so sometimes it’s very hard for them to be as involved in *your* day as you would like them to be.  As you go through the planning process, try to remember that your BMs would like to be asked how they’re doing.  Just a little 20/20 perspective now that i’m almost 2 months married!

We like details here!

Seriously, a huge chunk of my reasoning behind being here is because I didn’t want to bother my IRL people with my ridiculous wedding questions or ramblings. Beyond that though, I genuinely like a lot of my fellow posters and feel like we’d for sure be friends IRL. It’s a GREAT outlet, whether wedding related or just life related. ๐Ÿ™‚
