I recently got engaged, and my fiance and I started planning our wedding (over a year away) right away. I have a bridesmaid who has been engaged for a couple of years, who also has just started planning her wedding that is coming up this October.
The problem is, that it seems to me that she has some jealousy issues. First of all, she started planning her wedding as soon as I started planning mine. There had been no mention of one before. It seems as if she is trying to compete with me with wedding planning. She picked the same colors as I did, and refuses to reply to any emails about MY wedding even though she's sending me things about hers. When I finally did get a reply to the email I sent out about bridesmaids dresses (this was after the 5th text and 2nd email I sent her), she called them generic and "pricey". She constantly talks down to me about spending money on things like invites and a caterer, because she is the DIY queen.
I would like to think that my engagement just made her realize that she should jump on wedding planning, and that the colors I chose are just popular (I have since changed them), but it's getting harder and harder to ignore the competitiveness in all of her correspondences with me.
What should I do? Am I blowing this out of proportion? Should I talk to her?
