Not at all. Your friend is overreacting in my opinion. She can have her day but she can’t claim a year or a season!

She’s being crazy. Get married when you want to. It’s not like you’re getting married on the same date in the same year and fighting over guests. You’re not even having a DW.

She’ll get over it. Choose the date you want! I would say as long as it isn’t within like 2 weeks of hers it will be completely fine!

I think it’s fine. We’re getting married Sept 28th, 2013 and my fiance’s best friend is getting married Nov 2nd. Originally they were going to get married Oct. 14th, which was a bit too close for us because we live in NY and they live in FL but we decided to just delay our honeymoon so we can enjoy they’re wedding and make a vacation! IF she’s a true friend she will understand and you can work together to make it work!

@Laceymae:  She can’t claim an entire year. That’s just insane. I’m in a wedding next year where the bride’s MOH is getting married the week before! The week! And they’re both ok with it. More than ok, actually!

She needs to calm down. And someone needs to remind her of the best advice I’ve seen on here: “no one cares about your wedding as mich as you do.” Sheeesh.

she needs to get over it and stop being a drama queen.  like PP said, she has a day, not a year.  you are not obligated to plan your life around hers.  this is about you and your FI.  be firm in your decision and let her do as she pleases.

It’s not too close. She will have plenty of time to honeymoon before your wedding and 6 weeks should be enough time for your 10 mutual guests.

@Laceymae:  Also, I read your other post about getting engaged later than your friend on purpose. It seems like you’re a good friend but this is insane.

Down the line, is she going to say you can’t get pregnant during the same year?!

@Laceymae:  who the fuck cares?! excuse my language but your wedding is after hers so what would be the big deal!? Have your wedding when you want it. She’s being a ridiculous bridezilla bitch!

I think your friend has lost her mind.  I could see giving her some time for her honeymoon if you wanted her at your wedding.. but the whole year?  Yeah she’s nuts.  I’m sure she’ll be telling you when you can have a baby next.

@HisIrishPrincess:  that’s what I said! Is she going to dictate when her friend can get pregnant?
