My fiance and I set a date for our wedding. We started letting some of our wedding party and relatives know. Well, my brother and his fiance (who is my maid of honor) starts telling me that day doesn’t work for them. They might not be able to stay for the ceremony or be there for any other events. (They live in a different state.) I don’t want other people dictating when my wedding is, and that date is perfect for my fiance and I for numerous reasons, but I want them there. What should I do?

As long as you havent signed contracts yet, change the date. In the very beginning stages, you have to be flexible for the important people in your life/ wedding party. It’s part of the reason you tell everyone BEFORE you start signing things and making commitments.
Now, if your great Aunt Mabel who lives 3 states away who you’ve only met once says she can’t come, oh well.
But you don’t want to start unnescesary drama THIS early in the planning, right?

You pick the day you want and tell them that’s the day. No one should dictate when you have your wedding. That is up to you and your fiance.

I agree with al shook up. Why start family wedding drama right off the bat. The more flexible you are the easier the whole wedding planning thing will go. If you start up already you’ll get people’s back up.
