I wouldn’t care. There’s thousands of people who will have August 7th as their day. My grandparents, aunt, and cousin are actually all August 8th. My photographer’s is August 7th. My Maid of Honor is getting married one week before our one year anniversary, she almost picked August 6, 2011. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our one year together than at a special person’s wedding!

mmm, I would not be a happy camper . . and would probably say so. . quite loudly. It’s like you said, they have 364 OTHER days to choose from!

I’m still hoping they just change it to a summer wedding. Coming from a December bride that got married in Colorado….not fun…The week before the wedding, the high was 5 degrees, so the 29 degrees on the wedding day felt warm. lol

i’d probably be excited to share the day! as long as they asked first.

I don’t think I would care either way. Honestly I’d just be more likely to say whatever….possibly think it was weird but no biggie!

Our wedding date is the same as FH’s sister and brother-in-law. I had no idea when their anniversary was, and apparently neither did my FH – we found out when we told them we’d picked a date 🙂 They don’t mind (FBIL likes that he can tell people he’s taking Future Sister-In-Law out for dinner and dancing for their anniversary this year, lol), but if I’d known if was their anniversary I might have picked a different day (I say “might” because the date has significance to us).

Eh, I would probably be annoyed for a day then get over it. It’ll be a bummer not to celebrate you anniversary on the exact day for that year, but all the other years will be all yours. As a sibling I wouldn’t want to pick the same day, I’d want everything to be unique to us, even the calendar day!

This is why I refused (refused!) to even consider long weekend dates for our wedding date. Too many people I know get married over the long weekends, and though it *really* doesn’t matter I don’t think it is particularly cute to share your anniversary with 287356874654people you know.
Thank goodness my sister is already married and my brother is anti-establishment, so I can pick a date without feeling bratty or annoyed later. 🙂

I wouldn’t care. I mean, on most anniversaries you’ll just hang out together, right? And if you do choose to have a party, you could invite your sister and her friends and have twice the fun.

i wouldn’t care one bit. I got married on my brother’s birthday..he didn’t care either. Actually liked it cause he had a lot of left over booze to party with after the reception.. 🙂

My brother is also engaged. He and his Fiance have not set a date for several reason and the biggest being a money factor. My Fiance and I got engaged 5 weeks after my bro. I called my brother and asked him how he not only felt about sharing an Anniversary, but sharing a wedding date. I figured it would save on all cost and we could split the cost between our mom, us, and our FI’s family.
Bro was all for it. His Fiance thought it was horrible idea.
Needless to say, I have my own anniversary and Bro still doesn’t have a date set.

My brother had a shotgun wedding last summer and I’m having my wedding this fall. I never wanted a summer wedding so we never had to worry about that .
My mom got married on February 13th (the church was booked for the 14th) and my mom’s sister got married February 14th for her second wedding. Mom was pretty upset at the time, I think I could understand that.

My birthday is Feb. 14th, I can’t imagine being upset at the millions of people who have married on that day.

I would not be too happy. I’m with you JSDragonfly…seriously there’s 364 other days in a year and if my sister had to choose my day I wouldn’t be very impressed.

*shrug* We chose our wedding date in part because we would share an anniversary with two other couples we know.
I think that you’re only 6 months from your wedding so it still feels like it’s yours and big and special and huge. I think 20 years from now you will not care less. I would take it as a compliment.
