- Wedding: August 2010
I keep reading all the posts about brides wondering if they should attend other peoples weddings that are within a month of their own.
Well… my wedding is Aug 7th, my MOH’s is Aug 23rd. I am one of her bridesmaids. She was engaged before me and set a date before me as well. Here is the thing though. Aug 7th was basically the only day we could do. FI’s dad works month on month off in NZ and is therefore not home July, or Sept. We are also moving 7 hours away to finish school and plan on leaving 2 days after our wedding to set up our new apartment and then returning Aug 18th or 19th to help her with her wedding. So moving is our honeymoon! And actually I couln’t be more thrilled, since this is the first time I get to set up our very own place.
So really, unless we wanted to get married in June, and therefore find a place to live for 3 months where we are now and pay 3 months of extra rent, Aug 7th was pretty much the only day.
Maid/Matron of Honor is thrilled for us and has never said a bad word about the date. I have asked her if it bothers her, but she always says “of course not!” And we are thrilled that we get to plan our weddings together and get to be a part of each others big day.
So I guess what I am asking is what is the big deal?? Shouldn’t pretty much everything all be done by at least a week before your wedding?
