Is anyone else feeling pretty down about their wedding? My bridal party arent interested at all, i have no friends, i dont socialise, suffer from anxiety, i have no 1 to talk weddings too, im from the north east
I get times like this, as my partner is so busy with work and I never have time to meet with my bridal party. Although we are from different areas you're welcome to drop me a message, and I'll reply when I have a break in between jobs/evening 😊😊 no one should feel down about their wedding!! Xx
I’ll happily talk weddings, it’s all I talk about haha! 3 months to go for me, feel free to message me sweet xx
I totally understand how you feel but the only people that matter are you and your fiance, it's gonna be amazing wether you have 100 people there or 2 because your getting married, try bot to get caught up in all of the other details because on the day none of that matters as long as you make the most of it with each other x
I get times like that. I love far from family and my Maid of honer is my sister and she work different days from me my partner works away so I do have days like it. Xx
Where in the North East are you from? I'm from near Newcastle and got married a few years ago and my friend Rhiannon Robson is planning her wedding now if the poster would like someone to talk to!
I was like this as well due to drama. If you ever need to talk you can pm me
Im also from north east and planning my wedding have days when i ferl only i care about it and get quiet down just wondering wether i should just cancel it here if u want to drop me a message xx
Im from the north east and know how you feel. I very rarely see my friends due to a busy work life so its gonna have to be a one woman army for my wedding.
Where abouts in the north east are you from
Definitely have days like this, my best mate is awesome but for some reason I hate bothering people with wedding talk, but feel free to mesg me even if it’s to vent x
I’m like this! Got engaged last year...starting planning but then because no one was interested I stopped planning it it’s very sad when there’s no one to share the excitement with. I’d happily talk weddings with you too! Feel free to message xx
More people than you think feel this way. I set up a group for people to have someone to talk weddings or general chat if you're interested? https://www.facebook.com/groups/401809960264914/
I completely understand this. 💗
This is actually really common during engagement!! It's a huge life transition and society tells us it's supposed to be all gumdrops and rainbows and romance but sometimes even though you know you're with the right person, it still can be lonely and stressful and scary. I would super super recommend these two books, "Emotionally Engaged" by Allison Moir-Smith and "The Conscious Bride" by Sheryl Paul
They were lifesavers for me, they go into how to deal with and work through anxiety and issues with bridesmaids and loneliness and all that! Congrats on your upcoming wedding and good luck!! :)
My maid of honour hasn’t spoken to me properly in months she’s got her own life with another baby on the way so I’ve gone from thinking of different styles of weddings to giving up and having a small service in a register office none of my family want to come because they can’t be bothered to travel to me and expect us to marry over that way because we travel every year to see them so only my partners family will bother to come and a few friends but as long as we are happy I guess that’s all that matters
I keep feeling down about mine too. Seems to be quite a normal thing unfortunately. All that matters is you and your partner get the day you want.
How far is it off your wedding if you don't mind me asking. I felt like this a few months ago, we got engaged in August 2016 and we get married in August this year. This time last year no one seemed interested and it made me feel like no one cared! Fast forward to January this year and it's all anyone wants to speak about and now I'm like ... shhhhh ! What I'm trying to say is that if you wedding is still a few months away then maybe it's just too far in the future for people to be excited about, to a bride our weddings are the most important thing and our lives revolve around it but to other people it's not their main concern. If your wedding is getting close then maybe address this with a member of the party who you trust and just say you feel no one is interested and wonder if they have any plans hope you get this sorted your wedding party should make you feel special xx
Oh bless you. I feel like this as well. I'm getting married in sept this year and I've just stopped planning. My partner is too busy to make decisions with me. It's so stressful x
Know exactly how ya feel... We are getting married in August.. still waiting to see my flowergirls & bridesmaids in their dresses.. 🤞 they fit.. My maid of honour fell out with me, and decided after 14yrs friendship that we have drifted apart.. No1 is interested, & if we hadnt bothered including them all, we could of been married by now.. & would of cost lot less.. Good to know i am not the only 1 that feels like this.. Here if ya need a chat.. Have a great day..
I'm from Hartlepool. If you live nearby I'll happily socialise. I love talking weddings and don't have that much of a social life! I get married in August this year x
Yep definitely feeling the same. I’m dreading going dress shopping. Anxiety and no one to go with. Nightmare xx
I suffer to with bad anxiety both my parents have passed away so I feel other than my fiancé I have no one to talk to about the wedding but I don’t want to keep going on about it either, hard isn’t it
I know that feeling all to well! I feel recently like i wish i could start all over again. My choices would be soo different. Doesnt help me that i have a bridesmaid who seems completely disinterested and doesnt even speak to me!! I just wanna get the day over and done with now xx
Im from the North East too Hun. Please feel free to message me. I feel the same way, only one or two people have even bothered asking me about it. It’s depressing x
I'll happily talk weddings with you,
It’s not easy, I’m trying to plan a wedding even tho my h2b is still waiting on his divorce (long story) so nobody has any interest in talking about it! I rarely go out due to my anxiety, my friends are my oldest friends but live miles away, always on the phone but still!! Just keep at the front of your mind that it’s about the two of you xx
I totally understand, I don't have much family in this country and we are getting married in Jamaica, and not many of my family can go. You just need to always remember that noone else can bring you happiness but yourself. Make it exciting and keep the dream alive.!! This is such a fun time in our lives, I'm just doing the guest list now and just glad that quite a lot of friends & family will be there from Jamaica, message me whenever you like. X
I'm from the North East so please feel free to pm me. I'm getting married on 28th October and would be delighted to chat weddings with u x
Feel free to message me to talk all things wedding. I haven't looked at my bridal book for weeks now due to feeling fed up with the lack of interest from people (including family, who are close so have no excuse). Where in the north east are you from? When is your big day?
Talk to me! I’m getting married 2020 so I have a while yet but I’ll get excited with you (that doesn’t mean to sound strange) xx

literally feel the same. I grew up in the north east and moved to the south coast 5 years ago. Literally feels like no one cares when it comes to wedding talk but if you need a chat,I'm here!!
good luck with your wedding plans lobely xxx
I'm feeling exactly the same. No one is interested. I don't have any friends because of my anxiety, and no family. I'd love to talk weddings. message me if you like. X
I’m like this too. Nobody seems bothered. Our wedding isn’t until 2020. But it is the second time for both of us. It’s like everyone feels like we’ve done it before so it’s not so exciting now. We still want to have an lovely day, but on a much smaller scale. And when I mentioned i had been dress shopping I got asked why!! X
I'm from North of Newcastle. Anything you want to ask just put on here and everyone seems helpful enough. That's what we're here for, to share ideas and advice and hopefully get everyone more excited about one of the biggest days of their lives! xx
