Hi everyone please i need advice.
My best friend copies me costantly - my boyfriend got me a promise ring, she got one after; we bought a house, she did after, ETC. you get the deal.
She has been engaged for two years and was starting to wedding plan when the pandemic hit. when life started getting back to normal she still did not resume wedding planning.
but then recently My boyfriend proposed and i got engaged ! I have been so excited but now she has suddenly started resuming her wedding planning because i have started mine.
Normally this would be an exciting time to go through this with a good friend but now she is feeding off and copying any ideas i have in the wedding planning process. its as if she doesnt have a mind of her own and needs to follow my lead.
because of her constant copying, i had to keep her in the dark about my wedding plans and my dress - but she decided to creep my instagram page and followed ALL of my wedding vendors , fishing for answers i wouldnt give her!
Now she has my photographer booked for engagement shoots, and bought her wedding dress at the exact same bridal store as mine , and she wants me to go help her decide between two dresses even though she already said yes to the dress - My gut is telling me that she wants me to make her the center of attention to shift my focus and planning to her , and to rub in my face that she got her dress at my store - THE only good thing is that she has no idea what my dress looks like , so she has gotten a different style than mine.
Should i go to her bridal appointment even if she already said yes to the dress and be subject to her taunting? or should i ditch and make an excuse, considering her motives and her constant one-up and copying ( by the way she acts like an innocent angel ; thinking i dont know what she has been doing)
