Right now, FI and I are planning to have our wedding on June 20, 2015. I always figured, ever since I was in my high school’s performance of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and played ‘they say when you marry in June” I would be a June bride. FI is perfectly fine with this. However, I’ve been thinking, and the last thing I want is for our anniversary to be overshadowed by other things.
You see, his birthday is June 11th. His parents’ anniversary is June 14th. Then our anniversary would be June 20th, shortly after that is his mom’s birthday on July 1st, and then MY birthday on July 3rd, and then, of course, July 4th. Whew.
What do you guys think? Will it be ok? Too busy? Should I move to a different month, such as April? The only thing with that is, I don’t want to shave months off the time we have to save, even if it’s just a couple.

I think that is a very silly reason to change your date. There were so many reasons why I choose the exact date I did. Four of my relatives have birthdays the same weekend as our wedding and it crossed my mind but no other date worked for us and I don’t think it is a big deal.

Your date sounds fine!
MIL’s birthday is 5/6, mine is 5/7, we got married on 5/11, DH’s birthday is 5/14, and IL’s anniversary is 5/25!
I definitely don’t feel like we get overshadowed or anything!

I think it is fine. Look at my parents anniversary, theirs is 28th of Nov. Which is close to Thanksgiving, Christmas so don’t let that make you change your date. 🙂 At least it is a happy occasion.

@marinesfiance: honestly, my parents wedding anniversary is June 24, and they always say if they could change one thing about their wedding it would be the date. So many people missed or came late due to graduation ceremonies or dance recitals. If you dont have guests that will be affected by those events, youre fine though!
