My fiance and I have both been married before and have had some trouble picking a wedding. I have a couple pregnant bridesmaids, my dad has terminal cancer so we dont want to wait to long and have some budget constraints. We both could not be happier but are having a little trouble finding a date, mainly because he previously was married in August and August seems to be the month that works for us. I was feeling weird about getting married in the same month but at the same time, this should be about us. Our love, happiness and the beggining of our family, and since they are no longer married the month should be ours to take. Or is that wierd?

When you have pressures like that around you, then I’d say just do it! Our date isn’t ideal because it turns out my OH will still be undergoing chemo. But his illness is one of the reasons we’re not going to move it.

I completely agree with you, it’s over between them, who cares? It’s not like you go around thinking oh this was my one year anniversary with so and so (Well idk for marriage, but dating no). I guess if it was a recent divorce, maybe, but if it has been a while you move on. So no reason for it to be weird to have it in the same month! Same day, maybe a bit out of superstition lol same month, no!

Go for August and bear in mind that in a few years he won’t remember his other anniversary date. I am sure worse things happened in history on your wedding date but you don’t let those things bother you.

@minipenguin: +1 this.
Especially when the health of a close family member is a factor, don’t worry! The month won’t be ‘unlucky’ if it was the same day, you might be pushing it, but definitely don’t shy away from August for that reason :] good luck!
