Weddings can be tense times for everyone involved.
It’s a special day that’s about two people falling in love and promising to spend the rest of their lives together – and the event requires a LOT of planning and help from pals to pull off.
One woman, who is getting married in a few months, is furious with her best friend and maid of honour for stealing her thunder by getting engaged while she’s still in full-on planning mode.
Writing on Mumsnet , she asks: "Am I being unreasonable with my maid of honour?… Obviously I’m delighted that my best mate has found the One, but I’m a bit p*****d off that they had to do this now.
"We’re in the middle of all my planning, with only a few months left to go… tensions are high and plans are messing up. I need her help with all this, and I’m afraid that suddenly it’s all going to turn into talk about HER wedding
"I’ve waited nearly TEN years to have this wedding, I had to finish college, get well after being very sick, survive my parents both passing, save thousands to afford the bloody thing, and a whole heap of other things. I need this. I need the fuss. I deserve my day, right? I’ve waited so damn long for this.
"On the flipside, they’re together maybe a year, and don’t live together… there was no proposal so I imagine she probably instigated the whole thing.
The post has nearly 200 comments from people with overwhelmingly strong opinions on the matter – and some are a bit harsh.

One person wrote: "YABVVVVU. (You are being very very very very unreasonable)
"But I think you know that. Your wedding is very important to you. Her engagement is very important to her. There’s no top trumps. One doesn’t outdo the other."
Another person replied: "You sound like a nightmare", "you r definitely a bridezilla" and someone else said "please go sit in a corner and have a word with yourself". Ouch.
"This whole idea that the maid of honour should take on so much of the wedding planning seems so bizarre to me. Surely it is for the bride and groom," someone else replied.
