Changing my wedding date, should I decide based on my BM's 30th birthday?

If you really think she would be bothered, and her being bothered would make you feel bad (totally understandable), then I’d choose the other weekend. But to offer up a perspective on 30th birthdays, Mr. LK and I both went kinda big on our 30th birthdays, but didn’t care if the to-do was on our actual birthday weekends or not. As long as we celebrated, the actual “when” of the celebration was rather irrelevant.

We avoided one date because it was my fiance’s sister’s birthday.  She loves attention and wouldn’t have enjoyed sharing it with us.

However, I recently went to a wedding on the brother in laws birthday, and they brought him out his own cake and sang happy birthday to him halfway through the reception.  It was really sweet and fun, and I think the bride and groom were very relieved to have a couple moments where the attention wasn’t on them after all day being in the spotlight.  

Attention a close friend’s wedding on your birthday could be an amazing way to celebrate… but it all just depend on the person.

If there is nothing stopping you from picking the earlier weekend, why not go for that one?  Seems like a good way to avoid potential drama or hurt feelings.

Jewelieee:  I picked our date dodging the birthday of my brother, sister, BM and anniversary of my dad & step mom (which is his sister’s birthday) it was a task but I wanted a May date that didn’t conflict with those we wanted there.
