I was the one who said that some brides want the whole year – but I did not say this particular bride asked or pouted or got all crazed up over it. So I’m the one who made the general comment – I’m not saying it’s right or wrong.

8 weeks is … close. If the family is spread out like mine is, it would be a bit challenging to go to two weddings in two months, especially since one is a destination to Disney World.

Look – if you want to make this possible and hold out your hand to your SIL and your family – why not plan the bridal shower for the same weekend as your wedding? You picked a specific date because it was meaningful, not to hog some proverbial spotlight.

Use it as an olive branch. You could do a nice tea the day before (or the day after the wedding) and all of the out of town relatives who came to your wedding would get a one – two punch. It would be especially nice if they don’t want to go to Disney World but still want to take part in something wedding related for that couple.
