Have any of you brides lost friends during your wedding planning process. I feel like ever since I have been engaged, a few of my “friends” true colours have really started to come out. Even tho I have a lot of family and friends that are really supportive and helpful beyond belief. It just feels like these few negative bitter people really outweigh the positive. I feel like I should have just gotten eloped and not planned this wedding, and a lot of this stuff wouldn’t have happened. Feeling defeated, especially because wedding planning is already enough stress. I have one friend who I’ve known for 10 years+, that got her invitation and texted me how mad she was when she received it because I only reserved one seat for her, and said I should "know damn well" she can’t come unless she has a plus one (she wants to bring her young child, she has a lot of family support and can easily find a baby sister) how sad! (She also made no efforts to be a bridesmaid, so she is just guest) started with 7 bridesmaids, down to 5! The only children coming to our wedding are out of town guest and the children that are part of the wedding party. We are already over our budget, so we can’t invite everyone and tried are best to accommodate everyone, even though we would love to have everyone come. I’ve always heard that you will find out who your true friends are when you get married or have a baby, and now I understand. Have any of you brides dealt with friendship loss/stress during the planning process, how do you stay positive?
