    That definitly is pretty annoying. However I don't know if it is just having a DW one of my really close friends got married at home and her sister the MOH planned her bachelorette party a day before the party. Invited all her boyfriends friends and her boyfriend... and then forgot to pick up the bride and I which was the original plan. She aso cancelled on every single dress fitting.


    It was a total mess I felt so bad for her.   I did everything I could but so many things kept getting messed up.


    I think some people are just inconsiderate about other peoples life experiences sometimes.


    My brother is three years older than me, and he has been engaged twice before but never actually gotten married. He decided to propose to his girlfriend of a year and a half (they broke up and got back together once in the last six months). He is 30 and she is 22. I feel like he has done it for attention and has now taken away some of the specialness of it for me. I wasn't even engaged for two months before he decided now would be the time to upstageme.


    I have been being a pretty big baby about it to be honest.

      It is crazy how inconsiderate some people can be! We announced our engagement in July and sent out save the Dates for our wedding at the end of August. My brother announced 2 months ago that he will be getting married in Vegas in February. So not only does everyone has to pay for 2 trips but these trips are within 3 months of one another.

          It is definitely frustrating at times.... My FMIL has complained the whole time that she doesn't understand a destination wedding and that people her age just don't get it.  My FBIL was supposed to be the best man at our wedding and told us he could not afford it 4 months before the wedding.  He recently got remarried in in July to a woman he met in January and went on a 9 day Alaskan cruise.  All of this after we sent out save the dates for our wedding. I have asked people not to throw me a shower.  But I am having a Bachelorette Party.  My fiance's groomsmen waited to the asolute last minute to book which frustrates me.... My father is not going to my wedding and wanted to know if he had to send his RSVP back to me (RSVP was for both DW and AHR) I told him yes why else would I have sent him and envelope with postage!!! Besides my dad my family has been supportive.... in is my FH's family that has been a chore.....
