So since this past june I have told family over and over again in excitement of next yrs plans on june 23rd. This past august my sister n law’s brother got engaged. Yay, for them. I get a message from my sis n law today, who always tries to put her family first, she asked what was my day again. It should be engraved into everyone’s head! She then tells me her bro wants the same day or the 30th but then she asked what time my wedding will be at and how my brother will try to make it to both. WHAT?! My brother will try? I message my brother who is at work and he calmed me down AND spoke with his wife right after. He lets me know that he has already shared with them the date of our wedding and their commitment to the wedding before this. So then it’s my sis n law and her brother who could give a crap? I did want her as my bridesmaid but forget that now. She would be to focused on her brothers and since she’s already willing to push any plans of mine aside.
Of all the days they can pick in the WHOLE year they want mine? They are now unsure of dates. Oi vey.

That is terrible! My cousin got engaged a few months after I did, and if she picked a date anywhere near mine, I would have flipped a lid. Luckily, she has enough decency to let me have my fiance and I have our special day… or month even. Our wedding is in March 2012, hers is in October 2012. Try to be calm, but voice your concerns! It’s not fair for her to pick even the week after your wedding… it’s just not cool.

Grrr! I hate that! You know people should really be more considerate of wedding dates. You think she wouldn’t even say anything to you, but try to persuade him to not choose your day! I feel your pain my cousin pick the day BEFORE mine and she’s have a destination wedding. I wanted to poke her eyeballs out.

The Fiance is actually very sweet young girl. She just wants a simple inexpensive wedding. The issue was actually all my SIL and her brother.
Kristyn, that is EXACTLY what I thought! Why bother and stress me with unsure plans. I did get an apology from her and I know it’s thanks to my older brother. And the day before? Now that’s eyeball poke worthy.
