I know it’s tough but sometimes girls can’t get past their own crap and be happy for others.  It could be that they want to get engaged too and are secretly jealous of you or a million other things.  Also are you the first in your group to get married?  I was one of the first and a lot of people didn’t really know what to say or do because they hadn’t been involved in a friend’s wedding before.  If they are good friends, they will get over whatever problems they have and will be happy for you!

Congrats and best wishes to you both!!

I definitely can relate to feeling bummed about the lack of enthusiasm.  I was pretty disappointed with some of my friends who were completely apathetic when I was so excited! I understand that there are people who don’t agree/believe in marriage, or as MissAsB excellently put it “can’t get past their own crap,” but they can at least be happy because you are happy.  That said, try and spend as much time as you can with those who are excited for you.

My advice is to focus on those in your life who want to share the excitement with you.  The others will either come around eventually, or it’s their loss.  Congratulations!

I think a lot of engaged girls run into this.  I was surprised at the people who wanted to know every single detail along the way and always excited about our wedding, and who wasn’t.  My best friend got married two summers ago, and I was ALWAYS there to discuss/analyze/plan her wedding.  She’s an amazing artist and a professional wedding photographer, so her approval on some of my DIY stuff, and our photographer was really important to me.  I called her the second our e-pics went on the website, and she never even bothered to look until I showed her a couple I’d framed at my house the day before our wedding. 

I think especially if you’re been together for a long time and getting married was “inevitable” people who are close to you will act like it’s just the natural next step.  They don’t want to act like it’s out of left field big news, because that might hurt your feelings too.
