@MaggieMay04:  yes this is a legitimate concern. I would be pretty upset in your situation. however, you already were given your chance to tell her how you feel (she called and asked) and you said it was fine. There is not much you can do about it now.  Unless you are close enough that you feel you can ask if she could push it back or up a few weeks. Good luck!

I would hope that she asked the other bridesmaids about it, so that they could voice the fact that they will be flying in twice in a week. It seems stressful for everyone including the other bride because she can’t exactly go off and relax after her wedding either. Maybe you could work the timing to your advantage by sharing items? Or having a joint bachelorette. Of course, I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted your wedding to be distinct from hers.

I have the same situation…except I’m not her Bridesmaid or Best Man and she didn’t ask me how I felt about it…not a great situation.

It’s going to be a busy week… but it’s wonderful that you have such a great attitude about it, and aren’t saying “she’s such a bi-atch, how dare she!” Assuming that she won’t be on her honeymoon for your wedding, it’ll work out. The bridesmaid who’s flying will be the most stressed out, I think, but hopefully she checked with the other girls, too.
