- Wedding: September 2012
Ok so I recently got engaged. About 2 weeks after I got engaged so did a friend of mine. My friend choose the SAME day to get married that my fiance and I did and booked their venue immediatley. Ok…. so I moved my wedding date up even though it was not what we wanted to do… Shortley after our friends both asked my fiance and I to stand up in the wedding, I was very excited. However the probelm I run into is that in planning my own wedding and being involved in their wedding is when we shop or go to wedding shows…. how does the etiquette flow??
Specifically here are my questions:
There is a local bridal show coming up in June….my friend and I had discussed going together and since we are both getting married. Well she sent me an email asking me to go and said she wants her bridesmaids to go and my include her soon to be mother in – law – who I am actually related to. I asked if I could bring a friend as well – who is also a bridesmaid and also getting married before us, or if this day was all about “her” in a nice way, and its been about a month and she STILL has not answered me!! Do I have to look at this like it is about HER even though we are both getting married – standing up in each others weddings, do I pretend like I am not a bride and let her have her moment? What is the right thing to do here? They have made this seem like some kind of weird competition in several ways. I am very laid back and want to enjoy this process for both weddings but I don’t want to be in the background for everything….Since this has come up we have BARLEY spoken and have not hung out like we did before we got engaged.
What do I do? Am I being to sensitive about this?
