*Hugs* Your special time will come. Sorry you feel low. It does take strength to do what you did and support your friend – I remember it well. x

This feeling is so familiar to me right now. It’s so hard, and the last thing I want to do is convey these feelings to my Boyfriend or Best Friend because I don’t want him to feel like I’m not happy with him. It’s not that we’re unhappy, we’re just SO happy that we’re ready to take that step. I wish you so much luck for your hopes of September! <3

awww nothing is wrong with you…. I know exactly how you feel but it’s really nice that you are supportive to your friends. when your special time comes they would support you as you have them…

Your really brave, but your doing it for your friends – just keep thinking that one day, they will be helping YOU try on YOUR wedding dress. I would use this as a talking point for your partner.. don’t go into detail, but bringing up that your friends should at least give him a nudge about talking about weddings etc..

It definitely is hard, and I know exactly how you feel!

i definitely know how you feel. i just dealt with that myself. i was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding earlier this month and i helped her find her dress [on the first day of shopping!], tried on bridesmaids dresses with her, helped with last minute projects the day before the wedding, helped her get ready the day of but i didn’t get that wistful, wish it was my turn until we were on the way to the church for pictures. thank goodness for dark sunglasses, you know?

i was genuinely happy for her but sometimes it just hits me weird. but you know, i know my time will come so i try not to dwell on the gut punches. glad you overcame yours!
