So, Fiance and I are getting married in May and aren’t planning to wait to start trying for a baby. BUT, my sister just announced her engagement (YAY!). It’s a destination wedding and I’m Maid/Matron of Honor. Again, yay and yay. I couldn’t be more excited, but this is going to make our planning for a baby a little trickier. We are going to stop trying about 11 months before her wedding, and not start again until 6 or 7 months before her wedding. (maternity dresses are cute!) I’m so happy for her, but a little bummed that we have such a small window before we’ll stop trying. Thankfully we are both each other Maid/Matron of Honor and really aren’t doing a whole lot of pre-wedding events that we have to plan for one another, so if I do get pregnant, I won’t miss out or let her down by not being able to do as much.

I’m impressed by how considerate you are in ‘not trying’ for that 4 month window! You sound like a really good sister, and I sure hope your sister appreciates you for it. 🙂

Agreed! That’s really nice. My friend’s sister (also her MOH) ended up giving birth 2 days before my friend’s wedding!! It worked out fine, but I think it was pretty stressful for the family to have all of that going on at once!

I wouldn’t miss her wedding for the world. Even if it means we end up putting a little one on hold for a bit. Fiance and I want a baby, but when it happens, it happens. Thankfully my sister is as down to earth as I am, and agrees that maternity dresses are cute, and won’t hold it against me if I am 6 months pregnant and looklike a whale at her wedding! (hopfully I don’t gain too much weight!) Although It would go well with her beach theme… LOL.
Really, weddings and babies are all about celebration and family, not perfection. It really shouldn’t matter what people are wearing or if they match perfectly, as long as they are there with their love and support for the couple.
