so ive been wedding planning for 1year my sister got engaged yesterday and whens the big day! two weeks before mine…..
anything wrong with this? to me yes… i have shower date, stag and doe dates, shes my Maid/Matron of Honor and hasnt done one thing she even gave my mom back the shower invites bc she didnt want to finish them…
im hurt….. having a long day let me tell you! of all days…. two weeks before mine…. am i th eonly person who always thinks of other people and maybe work around their date…. weddings are like birthdays yes we get one day but deep inside i call it a birthday month…
it would just be nice take at least 6months…. its just upsetting
anyone in the same boat? how to deal?
how have your Maid/Matron of Honor been by your side? bc honestly id like to have my mom beside me at this point bc shes been going with me

Given the circumstanes, I do think your sister was a little insensitive to book her wedding two weeks before yours. But expecting 6 months is maybe a little excessive. She could have booked it the following month or something.
I got engaged a few days before a friend of mine and we coordinated so our weddings would be at least a month apart. It was important to us that people be able to attend both weddings and that we not be stressed attending the other person’s wedding or wedding related events. And we aren’t even related or best friends or anything. It’s just considerate.
I also think it’s sucky that she’s not doing anything to help with your wedding related events, Maid/Matron of Honor or not, she’s your sister and if my sister didn’t want to participate/help, I’d be hurt. My sister/MOH is more into planning the shower and bachelorette party than I am, I just told her to do whatever she wants cause she’s so excited about it.
Sorry you are dealing with this.
