Not at all!  It’s possible to have two family weddings overlapping with no “stealing of thunder” and with an 8 month difference, you two brides can probably work together to have fun shopping for things together!  Don’t worry about stealing her thunder since your weddings are so far apart.

I would talk to her and see how she feels.  I bet she wouldn’t say anything and might enjoy having someone to share this with. I would try to keep things pretty low key though until after her wedding. You would still have plenty of time to get your planning done if you waited.

Not at all – enjoy this time together – my BFF is getting married a month before me and I am SOOOOO happy that we have been able to share our experiences with each other.

Also I think it would be a great sisterly bonding time.

As a side note – be careful about buying a dress to early as often that causes dress regret, but have fun looking 😉

I think 8 months is plenty of time between the weddings – you guys should definitely plan together and take advantage of having each other to talk to.

As long as you don’t feel the urge to interrupt any of her wedding announcements with your own plans, I think you’ll be fine.  “Stealing thunder” only occurs when she’s dress shopping and you decide to do some shopping for your own dress.  Or if she announces she’s using peonies and you have to announce at that moment that you’re using roses.  Let her talk about her wedding and shop for it and everything, just don’t be planning your own wedding at the same time.  (Unless she wants to!)

I agree with others- put yourself in her shoes before making any big announcement. Just make sure the timing is good. During the bridal shower? No. (haha obviously, I’m just giving an example!). Otherwise, I don’t think you have to wait until her wedding is over! It’s your big day, too, just a little bit after hers! 🙂
