Mean "friend"

Recommended Posts

@@KatieMcBride I was so sad reading your story.  Although I haven't gone through exactly what you have, I have definitely had people closest to me let me down during this process.  "Close" friends not even ask how wedding planning is going and family not even responding.

 

My mom keeps saying that weddings are when a lot of peoples true colours shine through, and I'll learn so much about my circle of friends and family.

 

All I can say because I'm in a similar position (also got engaged Dec 2014, getting married Apr 2016) is to focus on you and your fiancé and how amazing your wedding and lives will be together.  It's not fair for you to use your energy on people who don't want to share in your happiness, this is your time.  I know it's easier said than done, I recently ranted as well and not only getting it out but the amazing tips and support from the amazing ladies on this forum made me feel so much better.  Most of us have been there in one way or another.  Stay positive and just keep thinking of how special your day is going to be!  xoxo

Jealousy can be such a hateful thing and it's even worse when it's during the happiest times of our lives.  When we got engaged, my sister commented on FB with her "congrats".  Once she found out that it was going to be a destination wedding, she told my mom that she will not be attending since she won't leave the country. I've been engaged now for 9 months with the wedding 3 months away and she has NEVER asked about the wedding.  I have sent pics of things I have bought to try and keep her in the loop since she won't be there, but there is no enthusiasm at all...I have given up.  I feel it's all a jealousy thing...but my feelings are, if you aren't happy with your life and the way it's going...only you can change that.

 

My brother (and my best friend) passed away in February so I will be missing him at the wedding, my sister isn't going, and now I guess my father isn't going either. I let myself have one poor me day about it all...and I've since snapped out of it.  Wedding is 96 days away (who is counting lol) and I am back to being on cloud 9.  I can't and won't let anyone's negativity or jealousy put any kind of damper on my day!

 

Easier said than done sometimes...but try to put aside the jealousy...don't let anyone rain on your parade!!

I am soooo sorry to hear about your brother. What a tough thing to go thru. Hugs.

 

I think it must sting a bit more when it's your family member, especially a sister. So I want to applaud you for being able to move past it.

 

96 days will fly by!

@@RivieraBride15 Wow!! My condolences. You seem like a strong girl with a very positive outlook. I'm really sorry to hear about your sister not coming :( It's unfortunate when people can't see past their own unhappiness and if affects others happiness.

 

Hugs your way!!

You sound like one tough cookie!  You deserve so much happiness and I'm sure it will come in leaps and bounds on your wedding day!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
