How about instead of seeing if you “can even afford to take it up a notch for the most enjoyable evening”, try and add simple touches that are about your fiance and you. Things that have deep meaning to the two of you, things that she can’t share.

Try not to focus on her and any competition that is in your mind, try to enjoy your and your fiance’s day and make your day about you and the man you will marry.

I’m glad you didn’t let her share the day with you, that’s a little crazy. But please don’t go to her wedding and judge her for everything that she does on her day. Otherwise you are just doing exactly what you are afraid your family will do to yours.

My cousin (who lives in a different city) and I got engaged within a couple weeks of each other.  She was actually engaged before me, but I did not know about it right away, and she did not know about me being engaged right away either.  I shared my news with my immediate family and our grandparents, and we started looking for a venue right away.  When I found the perfect spot, there were only 2 dates available for the following summer, so I booked a date.  My mom called some extended family members to announce my engagement and tell them the date.  This was when she discovered that my cousin was also engaged and had not yet set a date, but was hoping for the same month as my wedding.  Knowing my date, she picked a different weekend, two weeks before mine.  We are so excited for each other, and it is going to be such a fun summer.  I think the opportunity to discuss wedding planning is bringing us closer, since we were never really that close.  My advice is stop thinking people will judge your weddings against each other, and be happy that your family has so much happy news all at once!

I can’t believe she asked you to change the date
