Do Your Wedding-Planning Friends Make You Envious?

Traditional wedding planning can seem like a full-time job. You have to choose a dress, venue, photographer, band, registry, guest list . . . the to-do list goes on.

For those who wait their whole lives for the big day, planning a wedding is not only a full-time job — it's a dream job! Other people see the time (and money) consuming planning as a necessary evil.

And if you're not getting married soon, you might be watching from the sidelines as your engaged friends figure out all the details.

I'm curious, would you rather be in their shoes planning your wedding, or are you thankful that you don't have to deal with the headaches? Of course, you might be totally neutral.

no. I was planning my wedding but got annoyed and stopped. Really not sure what there is to be jealous about.

I also want to say that I like to visit other forums because people are more open minded and appreciated other opinions than group think.

I would definitely blow lot of cash just to have a fake wedding if a real one is not forthcoming in the immediate future.

I am visualizing the grandest wedding, wedding reception and dinner ever. I want to blow lots of $$$$$. I see that the ceremony to be held at my home church, and receive the blessings of my favorite pastor and his wife. Or at the very least, at the glass chapel at Hyatt in Tokyo, Japan. The reception lunch is to be held on green pastures in a private cherry blossom garden and I want the dinner to be held at Dubai six star hotel by the sea side so guest can freely stroll alongside the shore line just like at the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay, CA. I don't have high hopes for a large number of guests. Given that their dress, tux, travel expense and other misc costs such as airfare would be covered by us, I don't expect lots of guest to be there for my budgetary purpose. If my fiance is willing to spend the money on me, his actions would make me feel that I am more important than money to him. Money is always replenishable but love is not.

I love hearing about the details of people's weddings! I'm not envious, just extremely interested and excited! :)

No. It confirmed that I made the right decision (for myself, and only for myself) to not have a wedding.

I'm planning my wedding right now. It's fun, but exhausting. We've gotten most of the big stuff out of the way, so things are quiet for now...

We had a very small wedding on a *very* small budget ($2500 for all IIRC) so I sometimes get a little twinge at weddings wishing we could do it again now that we're older and more financially stable. On the other hand, so many times couples spend ridiculous amounts, and it doesn't help that the industy jacks the prices on wedding related things, and then the marriage doesn't last. Makes the whole thing seem like a waste when the important thing isn't the ceremony, it's the marriage.

where is the "i am so sick of weddings and wish people would spend their time and energy on doing something more productive" option?

I've always wanted a super low-key easy wedding outdoors with everything done simple (dress, decorations, food). Everyone I know that got married had a big to-do bash. I don't get envious of that, to be honest it makes me love my idea of a simple wedding more.

No way! Wedding planning is hell. Personally I'd rather go to City Hall or elope. But I know our families will want a wedding. I'd try to make it as small and drama-free as possible.

No, I am not jealous at all.
No. Even though I am not the one getting married, I have been the unofficial wedding planner for both my friends weddings. So I get to have all the fun of planning a wedding without the marriage. I really do enjoy the meticulous planning and down to detail...almost minuscule things I get to prepare for my friends.

I get totally excited, but I don't know if envious is the right word for what I'm feeling. I'm a little jealous, but it's happy-jealous, like "Oh this is so exciting, I can't wait until someday when it's me!" Of course, when my best friend just got married I helped with the planning, so maybe that helped. =] If I was older, maybe it'd be different. But I know I have two more years of college to finish, and we're not even getting engaged until we graduate.

I'm with you lovy, I love to hear the details about their planning, but having been there I don't really miss it. Not many of my friends have tied the knot yet or else lived away so I didn't hear of the details. I think when I was planning and had my wedding I gave one of my friends wedding fever and she got married 2 months later. I thought maybe she was pregnant because of the rush! Sad to say her marriage didn't even last a year.

Definitely get envious- but not in a bad way! I always love hearing details about wedding planning, and I enjoy helping my friends choose cakes, dresses, decor, etc. Can't wait till its my turn to do it for myself. :)
