It’s your little brothers wedding, don’t miss it!  You can celebrate your b-day on a different weekend.

Your b-day happens every year, the wedding doesn’t

I think that it’s important to support your little brother. Maybe wait until closer to the wedding date to make any of the arrangements (just in case). But I think you’ll hear a lot of brides who were upset about friends and family missing their wedding because of “other things” and really – you have a birthday every year. This might (hopefully) be your brother’s only wedding. I don’t think you want to miss it.

Have your birthday celebration the following weekend.

I know how you feel about your birthday.  My birthday is my favorite “holiday” too.  However, you have a birthday that you can celebrate every year.  Your brother only gets married once (hopefully!).  Go to his wedding.  You can have a birthday bash the week before or after. 🙂

IMO, your brother’s wedding that will happen (hopefully) once is more important than your birthday that happens every year.  You can celebrate however you want any other bday.  I wouldn’t miss my sister’s wedding for anything!

God willing, your brother will have one wedding and you’ll have many birthdays. Might as well make a small sacrifice. 🙂

It’s a birthDAY, not a birthWEEKEND. Go to your brother’s wedding!

I also think you should go to your little brother’s wedding. For me, there wouldn’t even be a question, I would go. Family is very important to me, and takes precedence over anything that I would have planned.

Go to the wedding… you can celebrate your birthday every day (so it’s okay to miss 1) but your brother only gets married once. It would be kind of selfish to not go…

Its your little brothers wedding – go to it!  I think you will regret it if you dont.  Your birthday is once a year, he will only get married once in his life.  You can always celebrate your birthday the weekend before or the weekend after.

I think you should go unless of course you absolutely can’t afford the plane ticket. Your brother will only get married once (hopefully) and you have a birthday every year. Maybe you can celebrate the weekend before or after. i know I wouldnt miss my brothers wedding. I think you will regret it. Good luck!

I would go. But only because I think that you can have just as much fun at your brothers wedding and you can always have a big birthday bash the next weekend. I understand that you enjoy your birthday and want to have a big birthday weekend but I also think that it’s unfair to your brother to say that you won’t attend his wedding because it’s your birthday on the Friday.

wouldn’t you be mad if he was thinking this? or one of your other guests? I would be so hurt if a guest didn’t come because it interfered with theit birthday. so hurt!
