Hmmm.. I don’t know what to tell you really.  I can understand you are frustrated.. but it’s not like it’s the same day. And I do think that she was thinking of family members who have to travel a great distance.  Now there is a better chance your FI will have more family members there because there are 2 family wedding close together.

What I don’t understand is why you would want her to move her wedding to the week BEFORE yours????  When I started reading the first thing I thought was “at least it’s not the week before”.

That does stink, but I agree with Miss Smurf, I would have preferred their wedding be AFTER yours, not before.  You could have waited a week and then taken your honeymoon.

@heatherdelight: That is frustrating, but don’t let it get to you too much. At this point, try to keep the rest of the details of your wedding to yourself. Just cite superstition or that you want to keep the rest a surprise. 😉 Hang in there!

There will always be a bride with the same colors as you.

Perhaps she was being a little insensitive in picking the same colours as you – especially if she knew what your colors were going to be.  Do you think that either of you will change your mind on colors?

Yeah… I can see why you are frustrated with her.  And I think it will be hard keeping things from her because she is in your wedding party.  Do you think if you spoke to her about the worries that you are having she will change?  Perhaps if you tell her that you are worried about the weddings being too similar, and throw in a line like “we both want our days to be unique and reflect our individual preferences” she will change her mind or re-evaluate what she wants.

Good Luck!
