    He is being a spoiled jerk. He gets a day, not a year or season. I think 2 months later is very reasonable.

    Yep. your brother is being ridiculous. He gets one day you get one day. Fair enough. Tell him you don’t have time for non sense, that your date has been set and change the subject.

    @yukitenshi:  Your brother is being completely unreasonable. As another PP said, he gets one day, nothing more.

    I am getting married 3 1/2 weeks after my cousin gets married and many of the same family members will attend both. We even have the added complication that family will have to travel across country to different locations for both. And guess what? No one has complained about it!

    You cannot plan your life around your brothers. If the timing works for you and your Fiance, then go ahead with it.

    I think in that situation, it’s fine!  He’s just being unreasonable!

    @yukitenshi:  Your brother is being unreasonable. You get one day. 2 months is plenty of time in between. You both have two very different relationships to celebrate. He will get over it.

    my fiances younger brother is getting married two months after us! Even using the same wedding venue. It first I was like “really?!!” And kept thinking they were trying to out due us, but it turns out that its kind of cool because we get to share ideas, frustrations, Etc.   I think it really is a personal preference.   Just remember that your wedding will be special on its own, try not to worry about everyone else’s thoughts and opinions.  (I know is easier said than done. It’s taken a few months to come to this level of thought, but I feel way better now after realizing that its about Fiance and me, not everyone else) best of luck!


    ETA: I guess I misread your post? Lol. Regardless, my advice still stands….he needs to get over it though! 🙂

    Yep…I would ignore your brother.  He is being unreasonable.  I know of a brother-sister who got married 2 weeks apart!  And as far as I can tell there were no hurt feelings!

    I could understand not having it a few weeks later just because your parents/you would be sooo busy.  But a month or two apart is not a big deal!

    If you planned it a week before his, I’d understand his feelings, but 2 months later is more than enough time.  He doesn’t get to own a whole year, and just because deaths  in the family don’t matter to him, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t matter to everyone. He needs to suck it up.

    Is their another family member, such as your mother, father, or other close relative that can talk some sense into your brother?  I think in your case, 2 months is a totally acceptable gap between weddings.  He is just being annoying!

    I’m sorry, I got held up on “my brother i smkaing hisguests pay for their meals.” WHAT?!?! How about you tell your brother that he should spend more time focusing on throwing their own wedding and back off of yours.

    My brother and I are getting married within just a few months of each other, and we are both completely thrilled.  I love the woman he’s marrying, and he adores my fiance.  Both my brother and I can be difficult people to get along with, and we have both found the perfect partners that balance us out.  He wouldn’t want me to wait another year because of his wedding, and if I had gotten engaged and picked my date first I wouldn’t want him to wait.
