That is a tough one. I think the only thing you can do is talk to the friend whos wedding is in September and come up with something together.

I am not sure what the weather is like in Barcelona…but October is really out of the question?? What is cold for you lol  just curious?

What about April or May? I have never been to Barcelona, but maybe the weather would be good enough for a spring wedding?

@Brideinbarcelona:  I don’t know if rules are different in Europe, but here in the US, you can fly up tunil 30-some weeks.  So that’s…7 months, I think some airlines, even more?

So as long as you were doing it a full month ahead of your friend’s pregnancy, it should work.  Especially because UK-Spain is such short flight (by US standards–haha).

But I would definitely just talk it out with your friends!  Just tell them the situation exactly as you told us and ask them if they have a preference.  =)

Please consider how busy your best friend will be with her own wedding and possibly honeymoon if you do plan for a wedding in the same month.  I say either move the wedding up to late spring or push it til the last week in October. It sounds less stressful for everyone. If it is a small wedding there will be plenty of fun activities (even if you can not use a pool) that you could arrange in Barcelona.


Good Luck

if both of your weddings were in september i think that it would make it easier for everyone… maybe have yours the week after your friend?

I would talk to her about it and explain what you explained to us…you don’t want to upstage her but are hoping for September but pick a weekend maybe two after hers? She gets a day, not a month and by addressing it early she can plan accordingly if she wants to go to yours…just don’t expect too much help if she’s planning her own wedding.
