  • Wedding: June 2018

Your friend is being absurd. You can have your wedding whenever works best for you. If she can’t not go on a vacation on her anniversary one time for her best friend’s wedding… I guess that’s her prerogative.

Book your wedding for when it’s convenient for you. Your friend can choose to attend, or not attend. That’s up to her.

I don’t think you have to change your wedding date because of one couple, but I’d they want to go on vacation for their anniversary I don’t think you can really be mad at them either. It sounds like a standing vacation and well thought out for limited vacation days.

why can’t june 8 work? Are you in school on the weekends?

brookeee16 :  

Is she seriously trying to dictate when you can have your wedding? So. Much. Pointless. Drama. She can’t go on vacation one day later? If she absolutely insists on making it a conflict then she just can’t be apart of the wedding.

Too much pointless drama, bee.

Just don’t have her in the wedding and the problem is solved.

It’s silly she’s upset she won’t be able to leave a day earlier than she originally planned.

Cut her from the wedding. She can’t pick your date. If it was her wedding the following day, maybe… but not an Anniversary trip.

brookeee16 :  I may would be upset if someone did this to me, but at the end of the day someone has to do what they have to do.

Would you be upset if a close friend knowingly planned their wedding during your annual anniversary vacation? 

Only you know if the date is more important or if having your friends there is more important. If you choose June 29th don’t be angry if they can’t attend.

jellybellynelly :  She said June 8 can’t work because she won’t have graduated/finished her school year yet. End of year is always busy with finals and projects due – I can’t imagine that you would want to your wedding to be in the middle of your finals would you? It doesn’t matter if she doesn’t have class on weekends – school is a 24/7 thing and can be all consuming, especially at end of term. With June 29, she can have plenty of time to run around and do last minute prep before the wedding.

This is your wedding and you should pick whatever date you want.

Also though…I don’t really see why an anniversary trip has to right on her anniversary. That’s a little silly to me. A wedding of a close friend should have higher priority, but that’s just me.

It’s not you.  Book your wedding for a day that works for you; but don’t be mad or upset if they choose not to attend.  She’s being ridiculous.

It’s your wedding. You do you bee.  She cannot dictate your wedding date. Traveling on day of your anniversary is honestly no big deal. You’re not marrying her so screw it. If they can’t make it, oh well, promote a bridesmaid/groomsman!
