I got engaged last year in August and in a process of looking at houses to buy. My fiancé was in a motorcycle accident and we had to stop the process for a while. We did not agree on the date until February of this year which was Aug 7, 2010 (he wants it on his birthday). He had to have another surgery which pushed our house haunting back and the wedding is getting closer. We both decided to change the date till next year either June 18th (the month we started dating) or Aug 6th (the day before my fiancé bday).
My best friend also got engaged last year before me and her wedding is May 29, 2010, she is very upset with me because we might have it in June 3wks after hers and I am in the wedding.
What do you think should I keep it in June or Aug so it will not conflict with friend.

I would go with the August wedding since that is when you originally decided to get married before your plans changed. If you FI wants it to be near his bday, that makes him happy, and your friend can rest easy knowing that there will be some time in between your weddings. Don’t get me wrong, you need to pick the date you want and shouldn’t worry about anyone else. The only thing I will say from experience is that being in a bridal party that close to your own wedding can be a big financial burden, and can lead to a lot of stress put on the friendship. I was in a bridal party 3 weeks after my wedding and I had to drop out because it was just too much money (they were having destination wedding). It ended up ruining our friendship because she did not understand where I was coming from. I’m not saying this would happen to you, but it can be really expensive to be a wedding party and then to have to pay for your own on top of that might be overwhelming.
