I got engaged recently, and about a month later an older friend who I used to be extremely close with contacted me wanting to reconnect. We’ve been talking a lot and she wants to help with wedding activities, which makes me really excited to become close again. However, I fear that after the wedding she will disappear. Mostly because our friendship fell apart before because she hadn’t wanted to be friends any longer. Has anyone else had a friend get closer wheb you’re getting married? Did you remain close after the wedding? What should I do?

Why didn’t she want to be friends? And why the decision to reconnect?

As the traffic sign says “proceed with caution.” I wouldn’t be so paranoid to think she’d want to volunteer to help, and then screw things up, on purpose, but I wouldn’t be optimistic, in the long run.

I’d be weary.. Who really wants to help someone with wedding prep..
Especially someone whom they are not close to. I’d proceed with the friendship with extreme caution and decline her requests to ‘help’.
