How old is she? Sounds like an entitlement issue. She is overreacting. When she gets pregnant, she probably will be one of those people who will act like she’s the only one to have done so. Talk to her, but try to be respectful. She might get mad that you said something. I would maybe go the practical route and tell her that a lot of people choose to get married in November because prices can be lower and the weather is still decent.

With her wedding a whole year away, her FFIL’s wedding won’t be the talk of the town anymore.

Man, I hope she only has 11 family and friends! Otherwise this is all going to get awkward…

But she is being ridiculous. If you could point that out gently to her, that would be best. I don’t know if she can do anything to fix the damage she’s done to her future in-laws, but trying will be better than being an oblivious idiot she’s acting like.

Kinda makes me want to get married in November.

I have a hard time believing that these people are real… Who gets upset about a wedding a year before theirs… Who gets pregnant on purpose so they can announce it at a wedding a year from now.

sunelake27 :  wth. No just no. One of my bridesmaids got married TWO WEEKS before us. And you know what? IT WAS AWESOME! We had so much fun planning together and celebrating together.

Lol, this seems actually ridiculous. You should let her vent to an extent, but cut it off right there. She has potential to become a crazy bride in the future. If she’s like this now who knows what will happen in the future?? yell

sunelake27 :  Um WHAT?  That is so crazy.  I mean, thank goodness she’s not getting married in June.  I’m getting married in june next year, and on FB all this month I keep on getting notifications from past family members weddings.  Hell, I almost got married the same DAY but a year later than one of my bridemaids.  When that was the plan we were talking about going on doubles aniversary trips.  She thought it would be romantic to spend their 1 year aniversary at another wedding.  

I would tell her straight up she’s being ridiculous, and that she should get over it.

You get one day – not a date, certainly not a month. Even if he was getting married the same day (10th November 2017 v her 10th November 2018) it’s a non-issue.

I’m getting married in September 2018, and I love hearing about other people getting married in September – in my mind, it’s the best month for a wedding and I enjoy sharing it with others (no offense to non-September brides, haha)

If she’s going to act like a spoilt child, treat her like one. Tell her this is all on her because it’s the newly engaged bride-to-be’s job to call perpetual dibs on the wedding month for all years and she didn’t do it, leaving other Novembers up for grabs.

I’m wondering how good this woman is in bed for her fiance to be witnessing this behaviour and still going ahead with the wedding.

If I had the misfortune of knowing someone like your friend, my reaction would be: “Fine. November’s yours. I claim February and March, February being a shorter month.” And then I would burst out laughing. At her.

Amy is an asshole. If I were you I’d be thinking of ways to excuse myself from standing up in this wedding. I can only imagine what she’ll be like a year from now.

Her FSIL’s plan to get pregnant just to hijack the wedding attention does at least suggest that your self-centered, petty, drama queen friend is marrying into the right family!

Wow, I had no idea this was a thing. My parents and my husband’s parents must be FURIOUS with us for getting married in August since they were married in August WAY before us. 

You get ONE day. 

Not one week, or one month. And especially not two months, 1 year apart. She’s off her rocker.
