@worldtraveler:  +1. Good point

 

OP, he is your brother, him and his Girlfriend have the right to be happy on their big day, too.  They are going to be celebrating their new life together.

Good point? Really? If both parents are on the birth certificate, custody issues if one parent dies, will not be an issue.  If this couple is so concerned about “practical” issues, then i highly doubt waiting until 2014 to avoid back luck would be a concern. they would just get married in 2013. they are being inconsiderate but i still believe that they have no clue as to what goes in to planning a wedding.  if they do get married in sept, they are in for a big surprise.

@kokoni7:  For some couples it’s not all about the actual wedding, it’s more about the marriage.  Fiance and I just started planning our september wedding a couple weeks ago.  Not saying this is the exact case of the OP’s brother, but I can definitely understand having kids bringing a different element to wanting to get married.  I do also agree with the majority of the posters however that the 2013 thing is a bit off, but oh well.

Rubybride718  it appears that you that started planning a few months ago. for all we know the brother and gf could have already been planning their wedding.  nobody is saying that the wedding is more important then the marriage.  this particular blog does fall under “wedding related” though. the thread starter Bigdays concern is the short amount of time between their weddings and how it will pan out in terms of family and long distance travelers.

anyway, if they are planning a low key and very intimate wedding than it shouldnt be much of an issue.  im just thinking that if i were invited to two weddings two months apart that were pretty far away, i would prob only be able to attend one because i don’t have the finances for two long trips that close in time.
