So, last night there was some exciting flutter going on at my parents house. The BF of my little sister asked my dad if they could get married. They’re not officially engaged yet, but they want to have a December wedding. Well, I was married in December too, which is totally cool. I just told my little sister to not get married on the 29th (was my day) and she said, “Oh mom thought it would be cool if I got married on the 29th too, but I thought you would kill me.” To which I said, “Uh, yeah I would kill you. That day is MINE. I didn’t wait 28 years to finally get married just to share my anniversary with a sibling.” Just a note, I said this in a joking/serious tone (sister recognizes the tone LOL) so it’s not like I sound like a complete jerk.
Anyhoo…I know we only get a day and now that I’m married, the whole wedding time frame doesn’t really apply to me. Now, if a close friend were to get married on my wedding day, to me that’s just different…not family. But a sibling? Seriously…there are 364 other days in the year, you don’t have to pick MY anniversary.
So, I’m just curious as to how you guys would react/feel if a sibling chose your anniversary as a wedding day. In the end, if the sister does, I won’t make a big deal out of it…just be a little annoyed. So, it’s not like this is going to be a huge drama fest or anything, I just want to see how you guys would feel!

I’d actually love it! But I can see both sides.

I wouldn’t care at all!
I don’t celebrate my anniversary with anyone except my husband and so I really don’t care what anyone else does on that day!

Um, I wouldn’t love it but I’d deal. Although I think its really nice to do an older generation’s anniversary (so long as you ask). My cousin asked my grandma if she would mind if she got married on her anniversary and i think that is cute. Like good luck or something because my grandparents had such a happy marriage. I would totally consider getting married on my parents’ anniversary if it wasn’t smack dab in the middle of the summer (I hate heat!) 🙂

I wouldn’t like it. We’ve picked our date and are so excited for it, it would be really annoying to have that replayed for a sibling. Slightly bratty, maybe but that’s my honest feeling.

Out of all the days in the year, my FSIL who got enaged after we did is getting married on my 1 year anniversary. We don’t get along and don’t speak and she has tortured me during this whole wedding process so it’s certainly not something that can be discussed. Part of me is pretty pissed and then another part could care less. FI wants to plan a trip for our 1 years anniversary and then say oops we are going to be away that day.

Yeah…that’s what she said (totally didn’t mean to quote the office LOL). If anything, if she does pick the 29th it will be out of necessity and not because she’s being a punk. She knows how I feel so I know she wouldn’t purposely pick that day unless if it’s the only day that worked for her….which I really don’t think will be an issue beings the 29th will be on a Wednesday. LOL
So, looks like I’ll be planning another wedding beings she’s already dubbed me her wedding planner. LOL Looks like I won’t be kicking my weddingbee habit anytime soon. Yippeee!!!! lol
*Edit* I hadn’t seen some of the responses when I wrote mine…I think the only reason it does bother me is my sister can be kind of high maintence, rephrase VERY high maintenence (we are super close though) and I don’t want her taking away from my 1st anniversary. I know it’s a little catty of me, but considering what my husband and I have been through (military deployment, being in a LDR for our whole relationship, seeing eachother 3 times during the first 10 months of our marriage) that 1st anniversary is going to be HUGE for us. It’s finally going to be when we can officially live together, not have to worry about being apart anymore..It’s going to be a very sweet day for us…key word “us” as in, I really want to celebrate that day with him considering in the 2 years together, we haven’t been able to be together on any anniversaries, birthdays, 1 christmas etc…So, I guess my irritations only end up on the 1st anniversary…any year after that I’m totally cool w/ sharing beings I do get along with my sister.

It would bug me, sure. But I know that my sister won’t do it out of love and respect for me and FH. Besides, she’d want her own special day without any previous immediate family attachment to it! But if she did? Meh, I’d cope. Hundreds of other people in the world will get married on the same day as me and in the end another one doesn’t matter. It’d only feel different because we’re related.

I wouldn’t be really happy about it but would ultimately realize its not a big deal. But like you said – I wouldn’t really want to share my anniversary with a sibling.

I think it would be neat. After the actual wedding day no one other than the couple really pays attention to anniversaries.
I think it’s a neat kind of new family tradition. My mother and father were married on Christmas day and my grandparents on New Years day. I considered getting married on a holiday to keep the tradition alive but I think it would be too stressful!

Now this really got me thinking LOL. I don’t care about the date, but I’m a little annoyed that this is how I will have to spend my first anniversary. I wonder if she did it on purpose.

I would not like that at all! It’s one thing to maybe get married on your parents or grandparents anniversary but to have your sibling get married on your one year anniversary is just weird. I hope my little sister picks her own special day to celebrate such a major event in her life!
