So I'll trying to make a long story short with a timeline...
February 2010 - J&M get engaged - FI's friends, one of whom will be GM in our wedding
August 2010 - J&K get engaged - my FI and me
August 2010 - J&K set date for May 18, 2012, making sure NUMEROUS times that J&M have no set anything, etc.
November 2010 - J&M set date for May 26, 2012
I'm not sure what to make of this! On one hand J&J have been good friends for a long time and J is even going to be a GM in our wedding - not sure in my FI will be in the other wedding as J&M have large families. However, we planned our wedding WAY before they did and they were well aware of our date (they even called the day before they booked it to double check the date of our wedding with us). I don't think that I should have to plan my honeymoon around another person! They had 7 months to tell us that they wanted May 26th, I would NOT by any means have picked May 18th knowing that we'd be on our honeymoon for their wedding. I'm very upset that someone would do this, as I would never ever ever put someone else in this situation. The best, or worst depending on how you look at it, part of this whole thing is that they are our only other set of friends who are currently engaged. They had 50 other weekends to pick from and have been wishy-washy about their date from the start so we really had nothing to go by and weren't about to wait for them to book their wedding since it'd been so long we didn't know if it would even ever happen. What are your thoughts??
