You’re still super young. You have a lot of time ahead of you and I think that you need to just step back, take a breath and remind yourself that your moment will come when he is ready.

I’ve been experiencing this too since a friend recently got engaged and I’m raging with jealously but have to keep it together and remember that my time will come! We are also waiting to finish school. I don’t have much advice since I’m in a similar situation, so I guess I’m just letting you know that you’re not alone ๐Ÿ™‚

@EllieWaiting:  Are you her MOH? Or are you in the bridal party? Because if you are then I think you need to suck it up and help her… But if you’re not? Honestly, if she’s doing any wedding planning… I would try to leave the room if it really bugs you this much. Like you said, it’s her wedding… Not yours. You can direct her towards this site for help if she really needs it… But I don’t feel like you should feel obligated to help her… Like I said though, if you’re in the bridal party then you’re screwed :p

best advice i can give (as someone with friends engaged/wedding planning after only a few months of dating while i’ve been with my SO for years, ugh, happy for them though but still, i know the feeling!) is to BE SUPPORTIVE. think about if you were in her shoes, she probably feels weird too knowing you probably feel that way at least a bit, any sign of angst she’ll pick up on, so just BE HELPFUL. you’ll be engaged soon, and then she can help you plan yours! don’t ruin a friendship over a timeline

@EllieWaiting:  why dont you help her with the wedding planning (as hard as it will be) then when you get engaged you will know what to stay away from and what looks good, start a pintrest board of all the things you like and keep track of them. You might notice what themes look good and what doesnt. Just be mindful of your friend, shes super happy that it is her time and you are in the bridal party, what an honour enjoy it, youre still young and you know it will happen for you too. Maybe suggest to your bf that you wouldnt mind being engaged the same time as her if you dont mind it and he wants to do it? or just start planning your own wedding xx
