I don’t think you need to worry too much – maybe the other woman doesn’t want her wedding overshadowed – I know a girl who refuses to get married in the same YEAR as her future-brother-in-law let alone the same week/month.

I think you should do what’s bet for you and the majority of the people attending (you can’t suit everyone all the time)

@Fallicious1012: Oh I see! Sorry, my bad (I’m tired too lol). Well, it could still be just one opinion – like you said you managed it before with ony one income.Maybe you should put the feelers out and ask a few people you trust what they think and if it’d be an issue for them?

Personally, I’ve done it before too and it was really hard but it just seemed like that was what had to be done – I never thought of not attending either wedding (I just pined for some sleep lol)

Honestly, I wouldn’t worry or stress about it too much. If the weddings are both local (within an hour or so drive) for your mutual guests they should be able to attend both weddings without being financially burdened. Plus who doesn’t like to attend a wedding to celebrate their friends love and happiness. I actually attended a friends wedding last weekend in AZ and another friend’s today in Vegas. It involved a lot of travel seeing as how I live in OR and was just in AZ over Christmas, but with enough notice I was able to plan for both out of state weddings. Just remember that this is your wedding and plan it when you are able to have time off of work to celebrate, relax and enjoy your new hubby. 

Congratulations on your engagement and happy planningSmile

I don’t think that this should even be on your radar!  There will be plenty of things for you to worry aboud down the track, I think if that date is the one that suits you and your fiance, then run with it Smile

if people are important to you, you attend the wedding.

You hit the nail on the head.  It’s not your job to worry about peoples schedules, they can do that themselves 🙂
