Hello brides to be,
I just wanted to vent and see what your thoughts were on my situation. My best friend is my Maid/Matron of Honor. Who better to share your wedding ideas with and ask suggestions from but your MOH? However, every time I update her on my wedding plans (which is not often since we’ve had a long engagement) she doesn’t really have anything to say but “wow that’s exciting” and then changes the subject. We live on opposite ends of the country so I’m not sure if the distance is making her feel like listening to the wedding plans is not relevant to her.
One theory I have is that she has been dating her boyfriend for quite some time now and she is getting pressured to get married. Also when I do bring anything up that is closely related to marriage she snaps back with a comment such as “I’m not ready to get married.” or “Everyone has their own timeline.” So with comments like this, I don’t bring up my wedding plans anymore to her because I don’t want to conjure up these feelings that she has.
I love my Maid/Matron of Honor. She’s like a sister to me but it hurts not being able to share the process with her.

I wasn’t really able to share my wedding details/experiences with my Maid/Matron of Honor or Bridesmaid or Best Man because of the distance and being at different points in our lives too. For me, since I’m independant anyway, I just kept them to myself and shared them with complete strangers on Wedding Bee and my blog.

Yeah, I don’t feel like I can freely share the details of my wedding plans with my best friend/MOH either. She recently got dumped after 6 years in a tumultous relationship, she thought they’d end up together, he obviously didn’t. So while she says she’s excited and wants to help, I don’t think its sincere. I think she knows she should be happy so she’s trying to fake the funk. Maybe that’s how your friend feels? Maybe she isn’t happy in her situation and she’s doing all that she can to avoid showing it? I’m sorry she’s not being a helpful Maid/Matron of Honor. This is why wedding bee is great!

my moh of honor is my best friend but I like you have had long engagment and she just told me one day honey i love you to death but all i have heard for the last year in a half is about the wedding i get a little tired of it. Now granted she is very supported and is excited to do and hear things its just sometimes since she is my best friend and hears everything she gets a little weddding out., which right now is fine because i still have 9 months to go.
