It seems there's no aspect of a wedding not worth fretting over. Based on my highly scientific analysis of social media overshares and advice column letters, getting married isn't worth the stress - or at least having a formal, fancy ceremony isn't. Today in Unnecessary Wedding Stressors we have to manage the emotions of a bride with few female friends - and her insensitive fiancé's actions. Let's observe the dully conventional couple in their natural habitat (and if you're detecting bitterness: yes, I've been single since 2017), shall we?
So my fiancé (30F) and I (33M) have been engaged now for a couple months. We haven’t talked too much about the wedding and all but tonight she brought up our wedding party.
So far, so normal.
I was excited to talk about this because I have many close male friends and a brother. I told her I wanted my 4 childhood friends, my best friend from college and my brother to be my best man.
