Your Maid/Matron of Honor suddenly decided to have her 2 month baby’s baptism 2 weeks before your wedding?
I’m pretty peeved but I don’t know how or what to say to her.
Do I have a right to be upset about this?

I wouldn’t be upset. Baptism and weddings have little to do with each other. Are you afraid your friends will show up for that and not your wedding? Are you afraid it’ll outshine your wedding b/c honestly it wouldn’t even cross my mind? To me, it’s a bit petty.
EDIT: Petty is a harsh word, sorry about that. I just don’t understand what you would be concerned about?

May I ask what would be going on two weeks before your wedding that you’re upset she’s having the baptism? I really don’t think it’s anything to be this upset over that would consider having words with her. Just my opinion.

I wouldn’t be upset. If it was on the actual day, or during that weekend, yes, I’d be peeved, but not 2 weeks before.

Honestly, the only reason i would be upset is if I thought people would travel to that, and as a result, be unable to travel again in two weeks for my wedding. Otherwise, they’re such different events, and you’ll be busy, sure, but you can take time off for a baptism!

Why exactly are you upset? It’s two whole weeks before your wedding; I think there will be plenty of time for her to focus on you! Just my opinion though.

No, I really wouldn’t be upset. Unless it was the day of, before, or after, I really wouldn’t care.

As long as it doesn’t keep her from any wedding related events then it shouldn’t bother you too much.
I know how you feel though. One our groomsmen (FI was in his wedding in May). Decided to take their honey moon (read above, they were married in May) two weeks before our wedding and couldn’t take anymore time off from work, so he was going to miss Fiance bachelor party. He ended up making it, but it was disapointing feeling like we were put on the back burner.

No. I think they have nothing to do with each other.

I don’t think I would be upset, they are two completely seperate things. Plus i’m sure Maid/Matron of Honor is very excited for the baptism so just enjoy and help celebrate with her as I’m sure she will be celebrating with you on your big day!

I’m not sure I understand why a baptism held two weeks before your wedding is such a big deal? Maybe if it was 2 days before, but two weeks seems plenty of time for her to get it over with and still be able to help you out as Maid/Matron of Honor.

Why are you upset about it? Is it conflicting with another wedding related event that weekend?

another vote for not understanding why this would make you upset.

I don’t understand why you are upset???
You should be happy for her.
I am sure she didn’t pick the date to make you mad at her.

I agree with PP – I’m not sure why this would upset you.
