I guess I don’t understand why you are ruling out the whole month of your birthday.

I would not intentionally schedule my wedding on the same day as a family member’s birthday. We don’t make a big deal out of birthdays, but I still consider them as “someone else’s special day” and wouldn’t want to take away from that.

I could care less if someone’s wedding was on my b-day. I don’t put too much stock in celebrating my b-day. I’d either do it that day or do it in late September. There’s no reason why you can’t have a wedding in your bday month.

I wouldn’t really care if someone had their wedding on my birthday (I’m early Sept, so LOTS of people do).  The only thing I’d be slightly aware of is maybe on future milestone birthdays you may end up having to celebrate your own anniversary on an alternate date??  Most of the time I think it wouldn’t matter though.

I’d also reconsider the late September dates.  We had our wedding two weeks before DH’s birthday and it’s also a non-issue.

If your fiance’s sister is fine with you having your wedding on her birthday, then that should be good enough for you. It’s nobody else’s business (and really shouldn’t be a big deal for anyone anyway, once you’re past 12 years old or so). Plus, your future husband will have a better chance to remember your anniversary if it’s on a date that’s already important to him.

I totally agree with the PPs – it shouldn’t matter to you that it’s on her birthday if she has explicitly said it won’t bother her. I wouldn’t think twice if that was the only available date at my dream venue.

only you can decide. I wouldn’t rule out a month because it’s someones birthday, or even a day. what if you have a child in that month or that day in the future? or a niece of nephew?


I’d just pick a day and go with it.
