I think that’s unavoidable and no biggy.there are only so many peak wedding weekend dates. There will be millions of others who marry on that same weekend and lots of people before and after you who will have to as well. you might even find friends marrying the on the same weekend next year! 

If your not duplicating her wedding, I wouldnt worry.

As long as its not the actual same day I say your fine and its a non-issue.  Out of respect for your brother’s bro (since he’s family) if it is the same day, then I would pic another!

CatchTheSun:  Absolutely non-issue. Your friend does not own the ‘second sunday of August’ or whatever weekend you’re thinking of. If it works for you guys then I say go for it!

I also agree with PP, our of respect for your Brother-In-Law I wouldn’t pick the same date as them, but if it’s just around the date you’re good to go!

Have your wedding on whatever day you want. As mentioned she does not own that day. Her wedding is done and over with. It time to celebrate some new beginnings.

Your wedding is about you and your FI! Unless it is the exact same date as your Father-In-Law, I wouldn’t even question it. If you are already questoning the date just based on the fact that his brother and your friends are getting married that same weekend a year earlier, are you going to question vendors that your family/friends have used in the past?  Best recommendations for those kind of things come from word of mouth.  Just remember, it is about you and your Fiance and worry less about what everybody else thinks. Good luck, hope you get the date you want.

the weekend of october 18-20 was a very popular weekend in my office.  5 of us have that anniversary weekend raning from 1-20 years.  one of my coworkers got married that weekend the year before me.  it is not a big deal at all.

It would be a hassle if the weddings were on the exact same day on the same year, but your situation should be fine. There are only so many weekends to choose from, especially if you are set on a particular season or month.
