- Wedding: August 2014
My boyfriend and I became engaged in August of this year, and we have booked our weddding for August 2014. Recently, his cousin became engaged. The fiance of his cousin contacted us asking if we would mind them getting married a month before us.
I understand it will be a completely different wedding, and a month apart. What bothers me is having my fiance’s family attend two weddings so close together. In addition, I asked my fiance’s sister if she would be a bridesmaid of mine. Her cousin will also be asking her to be a bridesmaid and it will be an expense for the sister to spend money being in both weddings.
My fiance and I understand we cannot tell them yes or no as to whether they should have their wedding a month before ours, but we both just feel it is too close to ours. My fiance wanted to mention that he feels its just too close, but we don’t want to come off as being rude. Should we just suck it up and say nothing or express our concerns?
