BSC on SYTTD: BM

"I've never even heard of a sister getting married in the same year as her sister, let alone 30 days after her... How disrespectful" - Idiot Sales Consultant

No wonder my sister thinks that she should have an entire YEAR for her wedding, and that I should put off my wedding until 2014. They make it sound like a sibling getting married in the same year is the absolute worst thing ever, and the most disrespectful thing a sister can do to a sister. Now, don't get me wrong, using your sister's WR related events to openly plan yours is kinda messed up, but once your wedding is done your wedding is done. No one else should have to put their life on hold for you.

Now, I understand that this is a TV show and they play up the drama, but making it seem like a sister getting married in the same year is disrespectful makes me think less of this show (if that is even possible) and the store.

    Guuuuuurl we're watching the same show! 

    I definitely don't think that you need a one-a-year wedding rule, but I think 30 days after is a little soon just so the couple that got married first has had tiem to settle down after the honeymoon and maybe for the fmailies that have to travel OOT for the weddings. 

    I definitely think that the SYTTD people stir the BSC pot though.

    Edit: Note that when I say 30 days after is soon I mean for siblings. Cousins and friends are a different story.

    You get ONE day. Heck, I'll give you a week. But a whole freaking year? I do think a month is close for siblings, but she's making it out a whole lot worse than it is. These shows definitely stir the BSC pot, like pp said. I watch these shows to laugh at the train wrecks. Some people watch these shows to get decorating ideas because they are really just dense.

    For the consideration of family and guests traveling from OOT, yeah 30 days can be a bit tight, but trying to say that the sister is being disrespectful - well, if she did it maliciously, then yeah, that's not right. However, if it is the only day that works for the other sister, or if the first sister pushed her wedding back, I don't think anything of it.

    Perhaps it is because I am getting married about 4 months after my sister (well 3 months 3 weeks) and she has been making it seem like I am this horrible witch of a person, but I would never use her WR time as a time to plan mine. My cousin is getting married about 45 days after my sister, so we're jammed packed full of weddings next year!

    I watch these shows because it's fun, and I like giving my opinions to the TV, and to laugh at some of the crazies on the show. It is also a nice reminder of to NOT be BSC!

    <div>Well according to these ladies, it means "There isn't room for you as a bridesmaid, but I still want you to be my servant, so I am going to give you a pointless title, and get you to do stuff for me at my wedding, but you don't get to walk down the aisle."</div><div>
    </div><div>As for what other people consider honorary, I'm not sure.</div>

    The term honorary sucks. Sometimes it means they can't be present the day of the wedding. Sometimes it means they had to back out (or got kicked out) because they got pregnant. Sometimes it means that "My FI only has 4 people he could ask to be on his side and I have 6 people so 2 of them are just honorary."

    I could keep going. The term honorary sucks.

    This was the bride's reason for having honorary BMs. I think her "party" consided of 15 girls, 6 of which were BMs. From the way she was talking it was like she was trying to make her HBMs feel special, but really just wanted to have more girl's surrounding her.

    Those shows piss me off. On SYTTD: BM, the owner of the shop was upset because the dress the bride liked was above her BMs' budget (before alterations even), and the MOH kept speaking up against it. In one of those little "between scenes" things, the owner said, "They just need to put up and shut up."

    Shows like this only further the entitled princess bride complex. It makes me sick.

    Anytime I watch those shows, BF will watch for a minute with the most hillarious expression on his face.  He can't believe how crazy those women are!

    The wait a year rule sounds really stupid.  My brothers are much younger than me, so that wouldn't happen, but I would be really angry if a sibling that was getting married told me that I needed to wait a year before I could get married.

    Honourary bridesmaids are like a B-list of a wedding party.
