my fiancé and I got engaged last summer and set our fall wedding date shortly after getting engaged. My best friend was asked to be a bridesmaid and she accepted. She got engaged in December and has just let me know that they have set their wedding date two weeks before mine. I will likely be in her wedding, and she will likely ask me to be MOH. At this point the date is booked and ther’s nothing I can do, but I just feel deflated. I’ve been planning this wedding for 6 months, and now I feel like my thunder has just been stolen. Plus they will be going on their honeymoon immediately following their wedding, but she has told me she will “ make sure they’re home the day before the wedding.” My wedding is very DIY and I was depending on her for help (which I had asked her about doing ages ago), but clearly she won’t be available for these projects anymore.
I’m also just worried that between to bachelorettes, two showers, and two weddings all within a short time span, the considerable number of guests that overlap both our weddings will be both exhausted and dreading Our wedding by the time it rolls around.
Am I overreacting?
