I have 2 dates in mind for my venue (and both are on hold). However 1 date works better for my sister, and 1 date works better for my fiance’s sister! The things conflicting with them and the dates are college/law school and work. I am fairly indifferent to the date, and need to solidify the date. I don’t want my sister or future sister in law to think I am picking one girl or the other, as I want them both at my wedding. Please help!
and both girls have to travel for the wedding… from Mexico to the midwest and from North carolina to the midwest!

@tinkstar – Hey there! Congrats on the big day!
Hm. This is a tough one! We were having the same issue, his sister moved to London for a year, and as much as we wanted to have the wedding sooner, we decided to wait for her. Maybe the dates you have in mind aren’t the best, maybe try looking at a different day? In my opinion, the most important guests you have is both of your immediate families, and most of the time they’re bending backwards to help with your big day (hopefully ).
With all that said, do what feels best to YOU. It is you and your mans big day, and it can be really easy to get caught up in what everyone else feels and ignore your feelings! 🙂

@tinkstar: does one sister have to study for a test and one is busy at work? Which conflict is more difficult to get out of? My first thought is that having a law school exam is probably really stressful without having wedding duties and celebrating as well. Perhaps the one with the work conflict could put in a little overtime leading up to the wedding?

At the risk of making generalisations: school is usually harder to rechedule than work. By that I mean: if you’ve got exams at that time, then they usually can’t be moved. But with work you can almost always arrange a swap if need be. Also, with exams, it’s not just the actual day; you need to be full on studying around that time.
