Now, time for the tantrum. I will try to be as mature about this as I can.
I drew that. I know, you are SUPER impressed.Then it started to happen. One set of friends after the next got engaged after us: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven....
I was elated!! MORE BRIDES TO PLAN WITH!!!!
Being as type A that I am, we had our date and venue booked and secured within the week of getting engaged. haha. I wanted to lock in at the current rate. Anyways, I was never worried someone else would pick our date. It was when all SEVEN of these couples began to plan and pick dates BEFORE ours. I didn't want to be engaged first then married last.
I know this sounds silly. I am TRULY happy for each and EVERY one of our friends getting married. It's just SO hard to sit here and WAIT and watch them get married before us. There is a small voice in my head that's telling me I will get to learn from what they do, or don't do. That's nice, but it still doesn't make the situation any better.
Am I being totally irrational about this? Did you have to wait and watch other people get married before your own day? Any suggestions or advice for how I should deal with this? Thanks!
