I have a question.
My FI’s step sister is getting married in Sept. We have not set a date as of yet. We have choose a few but I was wondering if it would be in poor taste to set our date in july or even August?? I don’t want to upset anyone, however we really don’t want to wait another year. I spoke with FI’s stepmother when he proposed and she ask "when is the date I hope not next September". I told her that we really wanted to get married in 2009, but i wouldn’t dream of setting the date in the same month as her.
Thanks in advance

Why not do your wedding in October? That way, she won’t feel that you’re "upstaging" her.
Or, if you have your heart set on a date in July or August, talk to her about it. Tell this is the date(s) you’re thinking of, but you do not want to upset her. She may not mind, esp. since she is your FI step-sister and you two wouldn’t have a lot of the same family attending.

One of our groomsmen proposed right before my fi did. (although my fi bought the ring first.) We were both hoping for a September wedding. I definitely dont’ recommend both having september weddings because with the honeymoons and all one wedding may miss the other. and if peopel have to travel that would be hard on them too twice in a month. But having it much earlier than that could be hard for you because you don’t ahve a lot of time.
THe other couple is getting married in September and we’re getting married in June.
I don’t think this helped you at all but that’s my input!!! :o)

Then definitely don’t wait another year! It’s great that you’re being so considerate, and I hope your step sister will be appreciative!
I agree with MissStellar about October, if you don’t mind getting married in the fall. I think one month before or after her wedding is more than appropriate and considerate of you guys.

Thanks for the replies.
I have thought of an October wedding and that will probably work out better. I wanted it to be warm but it’s not like we are planning an out door wedding so i guess it doesn’t matter. July and August is just to much stress for me. We thought about june but it’s to late for that.
Thanks again ladies.
