amanda.417:  Let’s face it, how many of your family members are going to take her wedding seriously, if it even ends up happening? I would give it a good laugh and maybe a stress-relieving cry if you need and proceed with your planning as usual. It will be interesting to see how her situation pans out and those who love you and want to celebrate with you will do what it takes to be there on your day.

Sounds like a pretty impulsive engagement. As PP said, just wait and see how it unfolds for her. If her wedding does end up happening around the time of yours, people will be gossiping about hers but admiring yours.

No one owns a month but damn, getting married the same month as a first cousin? I would not like it

amanda.417:  I don’t see what the problem is?  What does this have to do with you and your wedding?  Who cares how old she is and how long she’s known the guy?  Be happy for her…she’s an adult.  Enjoy your wedding day….

I also don’t see the problem. I think it would be weird maybe if like my own sister set her wedding right next to mine, but even then I can’t tell other people what to do. I barely can keep track of what’s going on with all my cousins, lol. Seems kind of mean to sit back and just hope her engagement falls apart.

same thing is happening to me. I never thought it would bother me but just heard news a cousin is tying the knot in july in toronto too. Last minute. They aren’t even “officially” engaged it makes me so mad we have been planning for a year and everyone knows that ! Just makes me feel like they are trying to take some of the glory away from us and squeeze in a wedding that same week when there are already so many events happening related to my wedding. Kinda rrally irks me, they can wait a few months but no they must do it then because all tbe family from california will be in town (for MY wedding). As my sister says calm down because you can’t change it. I freaked out and was so mad initially, but if I can’t change their plans then whats the point of stressing rigHt? 

Just irks me still

Don’t feel too bad, as you say it doesn’t sound like a super serious thing (in terms of how long they’ve been seeing each other). I understand it must be bothering you, but at least she can’t afford to copy your wedding!

I had a pair of cousins who got married within a few months of each other, so timing wasn’t such a big deal, except that the one was engaged for a couple years and when she did finally did tie the knot she looked at the other one’s ideas and basically booked the same venue and borrowed the same decorations from our Aunt. The other cousin was pissed and had to change some details last minute to keep it unique and personal, but I still think her wedding turned out better because she cared enough to plan it herself.

amanda.417:  Just wait and see what happens: Mid july is still 4 months away and a 18-year old switches boyfriends like panties, so it is unlikely that her wedding is realy going to happen.
