Does anyone else get extremely jealous when other people you know get married? A childhood friend of mine just married the love of her life this afternoon and don’t get me wrong I am SO excited for her and so extremely happy for them but looking at all the pictures she’s being tagged in today I am feeling the worst case of jealousy I’ve had in a long time! All my planning is done. Everything is paid for and most of my diys are finished so I don’t even have anything to plan to hold me over until November. I want to get married RIGHT NOW! I’m getting so impatient with just under 150 days to go I don’t know if I’ll make it!

    Why would you be jealous someone else is getting married when you are getting married too? I don't understand this. Just be happy for your friend. I'm sure she'll be happy for you when she sees your photos.

    As I said I’m still so extremely happy for her I just get jealous that my wedding isn’t for another 5 months. I need it to hurry up

    Yes, but what I don't understand is why you would be jealous in the first place. Would you rather everyone's weddings be postponed until after yours?

    Not at all what I was saying. I was more making a point about it making it harder for me to wait for mine. Wasn’t trying to start an argument 😂😂

    I'm getting married in October. The wait is killing me, even though I have a lot of planning to do. One high school friend just got married. I love looking at all his wedding and honeymoon pictures, in part because it's helping satisy me during the 4 month wait I have.

    It's not an argument; I'm trying to understand your reasoning. Seeing weddings and births made me happy. Now my wedding is over and seeing them still makes me happy. I can't relate

    I am happy for her though. I’ve stated that a few times now. There’s just a part of me that wishes my wedding was today. I’m soooooo happy for her and he husband and I was sure to comment on their pictures how lovely I think they are and how happy I am for them. I’m just sick of waiting and am jealous of the fact that her wedding came up so quickly (Even though I am still happy for her) and wish I had planned ours a little sooner than I did. That’s all im
    jealous of. Her wedding date. I’m still happy for her.

    I get what you're trying to say, you're just ready to get married. I don't think you mean jealousy the way it's being taken in other comments. After a two year engagement, I'm ready too lol. Personally, other people's weddings make me even more excited for mine. It'll be here sooner than you think.

    Nope, just makes me more excited for our day. It's not a competition. Everyone's weddings are beautiful and amazing in their own way. I have an old, old friend who got married about 5 years ago and I remember seeing her pictures and just getting so excited for when that time came for me. It helps that she is drop dead gorgeous but still, it was no jealousy, just all around happiness for her and also accelerated my own visions. At first it felt like it was about "how awesome can this wedding be, with the dress, the cake, the location, etc" but as I inch closer I don't give 3 s*its about that and I just can't wait to be married to my best friend. Also the idea of our families coming together is elating. Had my shower last weekend and just seeing the small group of guests come from near and far to help me celebrate was enough to send me over the edge. It'll be a big, happy, family reunion-joining that day. Jealousy plays no part in it. I am happy for every bride as I know they feel the way I do.

    Wow this was...dramatic. I totally understand where you're coming from. Every BAM I see on here I'm like "you're wedding is so pretty and congratulations but UUUGH!" Our date isn't until next August so at this point it's hard to believe that it'll ever even get here lol.

    Jealously is a pretty normal human emotion. I haven’t felt it for any current weddings but yes, I have felt the same way in the past. Before I met FH and before I got engaged. I get what you’re saying, though. I’m super excited to get married too...it feels so far away! I have over 300 days left.

    I can relate. I follow our venues page on Instagram and Facebook, and I see all the wedding pictures and I'm just ready for our turn! Haha pay no mind to those who took what you were trying to get across in the wrong context. Gotta love the internet 🤷

    Maybe I should have worded it differently in the beginning. I feel like some people dont read the full post/everything in the comments so I have to repeat myself 1,000,000 times but it’s okay! Not a big deal, at all! I always have a hard time conveying what my actual emotion is anyway. It’s even harder on the internet

    Nope, not in the slightest. I want to marry FH, but I also want our day to be special and how we want it. I’m glad we’re taking the time to plan our wedding. I’ve never compared my wedding date to anyone else’s. Nor will I. It’s pointless to me. We all have a wedding date, and we’re all getting married. No reason for jealousy.
