Wow, I’m just not seeing it the way most of you are at all. The SIL doesn’t seem bridezilla to me to be annoyed that her brother chose a wedding date eight weeks before hers. It doesn’t matter that his is going to be a small casual brunch wedding – people still have to clear the calendar that day, potentially travel for it, buy an outfit to wear, buy gifts, attend and probably plan a shower and/or bachelor party and bachelorette party. It’s not *just* one day, especially when you are an immediate family member, which are the only people we’re talking about here, and especially when you are an immediate family member who will be in the midst of making and taking care of last-minute details of your own wedding — or, in the case of Veritek’s future in-laws, your only daughter’s destination wedding, when the other wedding is now scheduled to take place. The truth is, there’s going to be a lot on the plates of the SIL and her parents and her groom in the weeks leading up to her wedding. I think it’s understandable that she’s a little put out that now, during that period, her brother’s going to be having a wedding. Its not so much about taking attention away *from her* as it is just adding more stress at the exact time when she knows she and her parents are probably already going to be a little overwhelmed.

Anyway, maybe the SIL *is* a bridezilla and maybe she’s a terrible person, I don’t know. But I don’t think being a little annoyed by her brother announcing he’s getting married a few weeks before her is necessarily an indication of that. Just as I don’t think it’s necessarily an indication that Veritek is a bridezilla for choosing a wedding date so close to her future SIL’s for a casual wedding that could be thrown together much sooner and allow for more convenient spacing between the weddings…
