SERIOUSLY!?!?!?!?

    So as most of you know I got engaged last September and am getting married next summer. So I just found out that my cousin just got engaged and is getting married in September this year. (WHAT THE HELL)

    I know I should be happy for them but seriously. It’s my turn. I know this sounds super selfish but it’s how I feel. In general I’m not a selfish person but I’ve never had anything that made me stand out from my cousins and this is the first really good thing that’s happened for me. I wanted this engagement/wedding thing this year to be mine.

    Also, they’re getting married on a Wednesday. Who does that?

    Meh! Be happy for them, and then think about the fact that their wedding will be done and over with by the time yours comes up, they can’t copy your creativity! And, maybe you can get some inspiration from what they do, or take notice of things that may happen that you don’t want to happen at yours, that way you can safe guard your wedding!

    I’m kinda inclined to go along with what Momkey said. Their’s will be over with and then next year it can be ALL about you!! I can see where you would be a bit jealous though when you didn’t see it coming but try to make the best of it and know that your day is coming soon. :)

    I’m doing my best to be happy for them I really want to it’s just hard. My other thing is that they have a lot more money to blow on a wedding and in comparison ours is gonna be like “eh”.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. People who come to your wedding are going to be happy for YOU. I get being bummed, but life has to go on for everyone.

    I got engaged well before my brother and one of my cousins, but the cousin got married a month before me, and my brother’s wedding was two months after mine, and the three weddings could not have been more different. My wedding was by far the cheapest and most casual and you know what? People told me they had the most fun at my wedding. I think atmosphere is the most important thing, regardless of your budget, and anyone who matters to you should know that and won’t be concerned with anything other than celebrating your special day with you.

    We had only a 3.5 month engagement. I agree your weddings are far enough apart that people can still focus on you. I also don’t think you need to blow a ton of money to have a beautiful, enjoyable wedding. I do get being bummed but I agree with the pp’s. Don’t let it steal your joy in planning for your own wedding!

    I spent a whole $3,000 on the whole wedding, including the honeymoon (And No, it was not a back yard reception, and it was catered)! We had a great time, and everyone enjoyed themselves! The people who attended my wedding appreciated that our reception was a bit relaxed, and not pressing! Weddings are not supposed to be done in competition! (Unless you are on that show on TLC Four weddings!) They are to celebrate the couple who are getting/got married! Relax, and have a good time planning yours! Sometimes, the cheapest weddings are the most fun and enjoyable weddings! Besides, your wedding has something theirs don’t! You as the bride!!! :)

    Dont take it seriously take it positively you may see the wedding and plan your wedding in a different way so everyone will remember.Just think so many weddings are going around and this is one of them.

    It is a stressful time because you want everything to be perfect. To be honest though looking back at all the weddings I have been to I tend to remember more about the time we had as opposed to the venue, the flowers, decor, etc. Probable one of the most $$$ weddings we were ever at was one of the most miserable. Such fancy food … not my style.
    point is money does not matter – have a great time and your guests will too!

    Thanks Guys I’m pretty much over it now just the initial shock got me. The only thing I will be mad about is if they use our song for their first dance or processional. I mainly worry that if it’s the same song or I do other things the same it’ll seem like I’m copying them.
