Me and my SO have been togethor for almost 5 years (5 years next month) and I know that he is planning to propose because we have talked about a timeline etc and we are planning to wed in the begining of 2015.
Now my ‘problem’ is here. A close friend of ours got engaged last month to her boyfriend (they have been going out for 3 months) and they plan to get married in 2015. My dilemma is how I am going to break the news to her (when it happens). I do not want her to think that I am setting a date just to get married before her. To be honest our plans were set some time ago, we just did not tell anyone because we wanted to be sure that we can afford the wedding and also because he has not officially proposed yet.
thank you for your help

I think you should just be honest. It’s only a coincidence and not a deliberate act after all. Hopefully if she’s your friend like you say, she’ll be happy for you! My only request to my friends getting married next year is not to plan it for the same weekend because I want them at my wedding and I want to be at theirs too!
Good luck and congratulations!

I agree with PP 🙂 she should understand that your actions have not been born of any ill feelings. all the best for you and your upcoming plans!

I say go for it, regardless. If she thinks you would truly plan your wedding before hers just to spite her, than maybe she’s not as good of a friend as you think. I wouldn’t not do something in/for my wedding because of a friend, they all know me and know I would never do something to spite them!

thank you for your help, if things go the way we plan then there would be a gap of about 1 -2 months so its not going to be days apart maybe I am worrying for nothing

Just tell her, don’t overthink it.
