Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
During this process of planning and putting it all together for your wonderful day all of the excitement just builds up and and you start to realize how awesome it all is. Even with the fun there's stress and you need a little comforting, venting, and exciting sharing time.
But do you ever feel like no one really cares? I mean, I know that your wedding day will not be as important to anyone else BUT YOU. I'm totally aware of this, and that's why I pretty much keep my thoughts, vents, and sharing on WBC or to myself.
Sometimes I do wish that i could share all of this, from the good stuff to the stressful stuff, with my close friends. I just feel like I can't though. Not unless they ask, or if I keep it short to like a few sentences. Because I don't want to seem self focused or long winded about my excitement. I don't want them to be thinking, "Oh here we go again..." if I talk about the wedding and planning.
I remember a friend of mine was getting married a few years ago. She was so excited with the planning and the upcoming events leading up to the wedding like her bridal shower, bachelorette party, etc. I was really supportive of her and genuinely happy for and with her, but other girls would just talk about her when she wasn't around. They would complain that she was self centered and too busy for anything else. I tried to help them appreciate that it wasn't a bad thing that she was positive and focused. She didn't seem self centered at all. She was just happy and we had to support her. I felt bad because I didn't understand how they could be so mean about her happiness.
This experience, watching that happen, made me a bit cautious about talking too much about my wedding and sharing the details and stuff with friends. I kind of feel like no one really cares, they just sort of pretend to care unless they are in the same boat. Other brides would care because they are excited about their weddings too.
We all want to share and encourage each other.
I wasn't even engaged when my friend was getting married. I was there for her and was genuinely excited to help her and support her any way that I could.
I don't know...I am just thinking and wondering if anyone else felt this way.
