I would, if it is a cousin that you really don’t know and don’t share guests (except grandma) with, then I would just go for it.  If your grandma is important to you in attending, you may want to ask her first about her plans, then make your final decision.

@tksjewelry: I agree. I would keep planning. If you share a lot of guests it could be an issue, but otherwise it shouldn’t be a big deal.

@LovebirdsSC:  I don’t see why not especially if she’s a distant cousin.

I’d keep your date.  I am assuming your grandmother will be attending your wedding 😉

Just keep in mind that some relatives may pick your cousin’s wedding over yours. 

This happened to us – one of DH’s cousins got married on the same day (after we picked the date MONTHS prior) and most of his relatives went to that wedding (it was a lot closer for them, vs traveling hours to ours).  DH was a litle sad that the majority of his family wasn’t there – but, they were distant cousins, relatives he didn’t have a super close relationship with, etc…… I didn’t mind so much (fewer guests, etc!) 🙂

Check with the relatives that have the conflict – if they are ok – then keep the date!
