4. But now it's wedding planning time which means every time you want to go to happy hour, your friend wants to work on her Pinterest wedding board.

There are only so many times you can look at different wedding invitations and flower arrangements.

5. Then comes the discussion of what the tuxes should look like and the color of the bridesmaids dresses.

You start to wonder what life was like before wedding plans.

6. And even after sitting through hours of helping plan their wedding, they still prefer to spend their weekends with their fiancé and not at a bar with you.

You try not to take it personally, but why would anyone turn down happy hour?

7. Instead, they ask you to spend time with them to help sort out their wedding details.

You agree because you know this is the only time you'll see your friend for the next three weeks.

8. But even though the planning process can be a pain, you two still giggle with excitement about the big day.
