@LemonyItch:  Good lord!!! This woman has tanked your friendship more than once and you are worried about how she will feel about you having your ONE AND ONLY wedding on her birthday, whicch comes EVERY SINGLE YEAR????? She would be the very least of my concerns in choosing my wedding date. I’m not trying to be rude, but I think you need to give your head a shake here!!

 

ETA: Not only would I not concern myself with her feelings on choosing the date, but I also would not remove the spotlight from my DH and I for one second for her sake. No way would she be getting her own cake and  birthday toasts at my reception!!

@LemonyItch:  Do mature adults really care if something else is scheduled on their birthday? Aren’t adults used to celebrating their birthday on a different day because they often need to work? And since you’ve had 2 major fights recently, who knows if she’ll attend your wedding anyway.

It’s always someone’s birthday. Do the 6th. Or do the 13th, because I think you recognise that superstition is silly. I kinda think the 20th and 27th are a bit too close to Christmas.

Yeah, it is always someone’s birthday somewhere.  If she would pop a cork over your wedding being on her birthday, why is she being considered such a good friend?  Her track record at loyalty isn’t stellar here, and anyone who can’t suck up having a friend get married on her birthday is incredibly immature.  Pick the date that works for your big picture, not one person on your guest list.

Seriously, do whats best for you. Birthdays don’t trump weddings, especially with an unreliable “friendship” like this one.

I personally would not, schedule a wedding so close to Christmas.
