I'm not the most rational of people at the best of times and this wedding thing...phew. It's bringing out the worst.
It seems that when we got engaged we acted like a stick of dynamite, triggering a reaction amongst family and friends of a similar age. Suddenly, everyone and their aunt is getting married and I want to stomp my feet and scream "no fair!" over and over. To be fair, a friend of Mr Mental Bride kicked it off by running off to get married in Vegas, but to make me seem less crazy, I'm ignoring that.
Most of these weddings I can deal with, but there's just one that's making the green eyed mental bridezilla in me just seethe with loathing. Everyone has one of those mega-competitive friends. In this case, anything I can do, she can do better. I have a headache, so does she, no wait, it's worse than that! It's a migraine! No a brain tumour! I get a new job and she reminds me that I was rubbish at that subject in uni. I'm sure we all know the type. Sometimes I have fun making up crazy scenarios for her to top.
After Mr Mental Bride went down on one knee I knew it would drive her nuts and she nagged her OH until he also proposed (at Christmas natch). To be fair, he probably would have eventually done it anyway.
Anyway, I was worried they'd have their wedding before us, but no. They're having it almost a year to the day after ours. In Venice. Then a party when they get back. As she never asks a thing about my wedding, I quietly seethe everytime she mentions hers. Every email or facebook post.
No idea why I'm so pissed off. It's not like our weddings are similar or anything. I just wanted to be special for a bit....
Told you I was a crazy!!
