Based on this and some of your past threads I really have to wonder how old you are. This shouldn’t even be a question worthy of a thread. You get one day, a wedding 7 months before yours has zero impact on your wedding. Common sense should tell you that. Be happy for your cousin and move on.

I don’t know why anyone on your side of the fence should think it’s wrong.  It’s 7 months, and you’re not getting married for over a year and a half.  Tell those people to chill!

7 months?? As in more than half a year? Uh, I wouldn’t think anything because it would be totally outrageous to be irked by this. By the time your wedding rolls around, no one will even be talking about hers anymore.

7 months? 


When DH and I got married last year, we were the first of three cousins on his mom’s side to get married in 10 weeks

I think you’re fine! Seven months is a really long time; the weddings won’t really overlap at all!

Enjoy this time and try to be happy for your cousin! 🙂

OP..looks like we’ve come to the conclusion that 7 months, is in fact, a long amount of time. Laughing

” but some people have said wow that messed up and i have not felt that way so i figured id ask you bees”

If you’re not feeling upset over something, don’t bother asking for a second opinion. Not only should your actual feelings be more important than anyone else’s in this situation, you’re almost guaranteed to find someome on this site who WOULD be upset by this, and may pass that along to you!

My future Brother-In-Law is getting married a month before us and my fiances cousin is getting married two weeks after us. Both got engaged months after us! Annoyed me a bit but all three weddings will be so different!

Its a non-issue and for those in your family who “upset” about this should be ashamed of themselves especially if they have knowledge of her sick mom and grandmother. Seriously. SHAME ON THEM!

I got engaged first and my cousin and stepbrother are both getting married about seven months before I am. In fact, I have 3 weddings to attend within 2 weeks this September!

I am nothing but happy for all four of my family members getting married before I do. I set my date for my reasons and they set their date for their reasons and none of them have anything to do with the others.

The first time I got married, we were engaged before my brother. Picked our date and everything…Brother proposes to his girlfriend, and picks a date 2 weeks before ours. Out of town. While I was a bit miffed, I have never made the drive from LA to North Lake Tahoe so fast in my life. And they made it to ours too. It’s all good 😉

@HisNightOwl2014:  I wouldn’t think a thing of it…. 7 months is a long time!

I think 7 months is plenty of time… it’s hard to space things out when people are going through similar life events around the same time.

My Future Brother-In-Law is getting married 8 weeks after us. I’m okay with it.. but had it been the other way around (i.e. we got engaged after them and married right after them) Future Sister-In-Law would have lost.her.shit. LOL

Either 7 months is quite a while, and I think you are good to go! Good luck planning! 🙂

@HisNightOwl2014:  My cousin had his wedding 3 weeks before mine and at first I was miffed but in the end, it didn’t matter! Our families were as excited for both as they would have been had they been years apart. In the end, it didn’t effect ours much at all. We did have to reschedule our first wedding date but now, I am so happy we did! This date has so much more meaning for us than the other one would have!

I say, let it go. If I can deal with 3 weeks and still have an amazing time with beyond excited and supportive family, 7 months is no big deal. Besides, they will be over the wedding excitement from your cousin by the time yours rolls around and be ready and geared up the the excitement of YOUR wedding!
