I got engaged in 2007. It didn't work out, for reasons I don't care to go into, BUT I had been engaged less than a month when my sister announced that she was also engaged, they picked a date that was earlier than my date, and all my wedding planning had to go on the back-burner so her wedding could be planned. I was not thrilled at the time. But it didn't work out for me, so in a roundabout way she saved me a lot of heartache. She got married in 2008, and divorced in 2011.
In September I got engaged again. In October, so did she. She assured me at the time that she had no intention of getting married for another year at least, that she'd done it once and was in no rush to do it again. We recently set our date for the end of October 2014, she's just told me she's set her date for mid-June 2014.
I know I'm probably being petty, but I really feel like she is doing this on purpose, that she can't just let me have my day. I don't feel I can bring this up with her without it becoming a huge thing.
Last week she told me she had bought a dress to wear to a NYE party, to my wedding, her best friend's wedding, and two other weddings next year. I think that's great - times are hard and I don't want anyone to have to spend unnecessary money on my wedding, especially if they're not part of my BP. Then she tells me that she's having a black-and-white wedding, and her guests have to wear black-and-white, absolutely no colour. Which basically means I have to go out and buy something to wear because my I don't have any plain white clothing and my only black clothing is not suitable for the evening in the middle of winter (southern hemisphere).
I'm just hugely annoyed right now, and I probably shouldn't be.
