For what it’s worth, I don’t think anyone is truly in the wrong here. A lot of brides would not have minded Veritek’s wedding happening 8 weeks prior to their own, especially with very different weddings and limited guest-overlap. Plus, I do believe Veritek had no ill intentions and was only seeking to honor her grandparents.

That being said, while a lot of brides wouldn’t mind, a lot, including SIL, understandably would. Even if she gave clearance beforehand, she might have realized it bothered her more than she thought it would and simply changed her mind. It doesn’t (necessarily) make her a bridezilla.

If it were me, Veritek, I would change the date (I especially like the fall suggestion), not because you’re wrong, because you’re not, but because neither is she, and is it really worth the potential fallout? Have a beautiful autumn brunch wedding, find another way to honor your grandparents, and just keep the family peace.
