I’m in a wedding of a good friend “Amy”. Amy is getting married November 2018 and was super happy. Last month she found out her fiance’s Dad is getting married THIS November. All she can talk about how she can’t believe that he would do such a thing by getting married in the same month as them but DIFFERENT YEARS. Is this beyond weird to think you’re the only bride who gets married in the month of November? Instead of being happy for her future father in law she has turned into a monster over this making nasty comments to the entire family and wedding party….ALL she talks about. Amy’s future sister in law (fiance’s sister who is in the wedding too) said she is purposely going to get pregnant on purpose for the wedding and announce it at the reception just to make Amy angry since she can’t be happy for their father.
Ug do I just listen to her vent or tell her that people are free to get married in the month of their choice??

This is not a thing. She is being completely unreasonable and sounds unhinged. I would say call her on it, but unfortunately if she is this self absorbed she wil probably turn on you.

She’s being completely ridiculous.

I feel like people with this thought process would get defensive if you point it out, but someone should try to curb that entitlement. If you want to be the one to do it, do it! No she does not own an entire month and she’s being silly.

No. You can’t claim an entire month to be off limits. This is just ridiculous.

Brides who act like this usually only get worse. I would take this as a warning and make the decision of if you really want to be involved in the wedding of a bride like this because it won’t be long before this entitlement and bad attitude is focused on you and the rest of the bridal party. This is the kind of bride that thinks their bridal party’s time, money and attention is hers and hers alone.

I would say something. She’s acting inappropriately and embarrassing herself. I wouldn’t say it in a harsh way.

My brother got married in November. Is she going to get mad at him too? She’s being completely ridiculous.

That is just crazy. Anyone who thinks this way has a very warped way of looking at the world.

This is weird. If you’re a good friend and she’s generally a reasonable person, I would point it out to her so she doesn’t ruin her relationships with her family. But yea she likely going to get mad when you point it our.
But I remember one time I was being a jerk to my parents and my friend was over and called me out. I felt so bad and apologized. This was high school but I’m glad she called me out, I was being an ass. It made me more mindful of my behavior. So I’m glad she did it. Perhaps this can be the same way?

I still cant wrap my head around this. I mean who is this person trying to claim the entire month for her lol. However i agree with PP. If she can get that idea in her head, most likely she will be defensive. Tell her that people will only remember the happy moments so she should stay happy and focus on her own day. If it were me though, i would tell her that she’s ridiculous. But that would trigger a conflict which I personally woudnt mind if that could wake her up. If you do mind having a conflict, try to be careful with wordings, tone, and mood. Bottom line is, you should talk to her.

Listen to her vent, but remind her that by the time her Wedding comes around everyone will have forgotten about the Dad’s Wedding. If it was the same day in November I could maybe see her point, but there’s only 12 months in the year lol you can’t expect to be the only person getting married in one.

The only, and ONLY, reason I could think this would upset someone is if they where using the same wedding plans. Like the same venue, style ideas, ect. That might erk me since a lot of time and efforts went into planning and some else steels it and a lot of the guest might be the same.
But if this is not the case you need to call her out on how unreasonable she is being. Even if her father in law was getting married in the same month in the same year it should not matter.
