Hi December 2012 ladies! I haven't been on in a while because I've been busy with law school, but I really need your advice on something. (And I thank you in advance for any input.) My MOH just called me and told me that she and her boyfriend are looking at engagement rings and are planning on a July 2012 wedding. Her boyfriend is a pilot in the Air Force who is stationed 600 miles away. After they get married, she'll be moving there to be with him.
Basically, here are my issues:
1. Feeling a little upstaged. FI and I have been together longer and got engaged first, I feel like they're stealing a bit of our thunder if they get married before us. (The four of us were best friends in college.)
2. She'll be leaving me months before my wedding. My MOH will be 600 miles away just when I need her most. How is she going to help me with wedding preparations? Do any of you have a long-distance MOH? Should I ask her to step down and have someone else do it?
3. I don't feel nearly as happy for her as I feel like I should. I want them to get married, I really do, but I'm not exactly thrilled with the timing. I know she's not doing this to me on purpose, but I still feel horrible. How can I get excited about this?
The short version- my MOH just told me she'll be getting married and moving 600 miles away 5 months before my wedding- what do I do?
