Am I entitled to be annoyed?
My wedding has been being planned for 2 years as far as colours and theme etc and booked since April. My nephew booked his wedding about 2 months ago for just 4 weeks before mine and then my niece (his sister) booked hers for 2 months before theirs....this caused the 2 of them to fall out with my nephew saying he'd waited ages to book his when nobody else in the family was getting married and was really upset that she had booked hers so close to theirs. I tried to talk to them both and told them they should just be happy for each other.
I was slightly put out that theirs is only 4 weeks before mine but was happy for them anyway. I have just found out that they are now having a butterfly themed wedding which is the main thing of mine as my mum loved them and I have a tattoo of a butterfly in memory of her and wanted my wedding this way in her honour. I lost her 7 years ago to suicide after years of battling bi polar. I suffer with depression too and maybe in a better state of mind these things wouldn't bother me as much. They have also booked the exact same room at the town hall as me (3 to choose from) but receptions are at different venues. Thankfully the colour scheme is different.
I can't help feeling disappointed and annoyed about it all and would like some feedback from a neutral point of view. Should I change my theme so that the weddings are different, I can't help thinking that ppl will be commenting at mine that it is so similar to theirs.
