You’re not the one being selfish, they are.  If they can’t see past themselves to genuinely congratulate you and be excited that you’re happy, then they aren’t very good friends/family.  I’d be honest with them if they start giving you flack for wedding planning– “you’re my best friend, you’re supposed to be happy for me.” (or “you’re my mother, I want you a part of my day and to be proud of me.”)

@GreatGatsby90:  I agree with PP and you shouldn’t let anyone rain on your parade. This is a HAPPY time.

One possible solution if you feel they will not react well and you do not want to see it is to send them engagement announcements in the mail. They will get it (very early) just like eveyone else but you wont have to see their face. they can call you. Just a solution

@bookworm88:  —> THIS

Congratulations on your upcoming Engagement… hopefully you won’t be waiting long, but it would be dishonest for me to tell you that is always the case… there are lots of women in your shoes here on WBee who have been on the WAITING Boards quite some time.  (saying this too, because I read your other post and see that you’ve just turned 22, and your Boyfriend or Best Friend is around 24… lots of guys don’t seem to get around to getting their gals a ring until they are beyond 25, sometimes even closer to 30).  The good news is, WBee is a great website, and there are an awesome group of Bees here in “the hive”

So my best advice… sit back and enjoy the ride.  Appreciate these days and your relationship for what they are, and what is happening in the moment… and don’t get all freaked out that the E-Ring isn’t here yet.
