So, I know this pandemic thing is putting a toll on all brides getting married this year. Totally understand and sympathize with you. But I am a little upset with my soon to be sister in law who rescheduled her September wedding date to next September 2021 a week before mine and FH wedding. I think I am more upset at the way she told us of the rescheduling. In a group text....... Not one on one not saying hey we may have to reschedule this is the only date available around that time and wanted to give a heads up. But through a group text with all the other bridesmaids that I don't even know. Am I being a little pissy about it maybe but I feel like a one on one talk or heads up would have been nicer.

    That’s so upsetting! Not only was she inconsiderate to you two but also to all of you mutual family members. Attending a wedding is a big deal, especially if there’s travel involved. Doing that twice within a short time frame is such a big ask.

    I understand. My future sister in law also had to reschedule as well for maybe a month after our wedding. But sometimes that can't be helped. It would have been nice if your sister in law checked in with you first to see if that would be okay for you, but some of these venues just aren't that flexible. And your sister in law may have just jumped on the first available date. I know it sucks to share the same time frame when you thought it would just be your own, but you two can bond over it. And even though your sister in law wasn't very sensitive about the date reveal, I'm sure it's nothing personal. Just try to look at it as a way to bond more if you can and remember people will still be looking forward to your date even after hers is done.

    Is this your FH'S sister or your sibling's significant other? If it's your FH's sister then i would be disappointed for fh because he may have loved ones that will have to choose only one wedding to attend if they can't travel back to back weekends or take vacation time; but I don't see it as big of a deal unless it was your sibling and his/her significant other doing the wedding that close to yours....

    Oh wow. That was super inconsiderate of her. I feel like it is so different when friends or more distant family members get married so close together but since it is your sister in law she shouldve given you more room. My sister in law scheduled her wedding for the month after ours and I felt like that was too close. And by the way you are being so much more rational and calm about it than I think most brides would be! Anything with the in laws is not something you should have to deal with, if you feel guests will not be able to attend both or if for some other reason you feel you need to talk to her about it definitely have your FH do it instead of you
