Former sorority sister STOLE MY DATE!!
Posted 13 September 2009 - 05:42 PM
I don't even know what to do. We have MANY mutual friends, and I feel this is putting them in a horrible position having to choose which venue to go to. Her reception is taking place downtown, and mine is in west Omaha, which is a 45 minute drive apart. I don't expect people to jump from venue to venue, and I don't want my big party ruined because some took it upon herself to show what a mean spirited, vindictive person she is.
FI and I have a meeting with our reception site tomorrow to see if we can bump up the reception by a week or two in an effort to minimalize any conflicts. Just wanted to try and get all of this off my chest to people who are unbiased. My BM's don't seem to understand why I look at this as such a catostrophic occurence. They seem to think that everyone will be okay with going back and forth between weddings. Am I overreacting? I don't think I am, but I could just be letting my emotions get the best of me. Idk. Just feels like my wedding is slowly falling apart. If it isn't an issue with a vendor or a crappy ex friend trying to sabatoge my big day it's something else..

Wow, how's that for a stab in the back, huh? Well, I would stick to your plan of checking to see if you can bump it up by a week or so if you think that will be possible, to avoid all of the stress and worries you'll have between now and the time of your reception. IT STINKS that you have to change your date, but I think you will be glad that you did in the end.
And I don't think you are overreacting at all!! It's a big deal, and your BMs should understand that no bride likes the idea of someone else trying to steal her thunder....and possibly her wedding guests! (I know exactly where you are coming from -- my sister wanted to get married 3 days after me, until I completely went psycho on her and made her change her date so that it's months away from mine now!)
HANG IN THERE

I hate girls like that. I really do! Recently, my cousin told me that she picked my wedding date but had to change her date. I was like, WTF? Why even tell me that?
Anyway, i think you shouldnt try and change your reception date. That is going to make her feel better that she MADE you to change your date. Screw that. Don't let her do that to you. You said that most of girls don't talk to her that much so I am assuming most of your mutual friends would choose your wedding to go to??

Good luck, I think bumping it up is the graceful thing to do instead of going Bride Wars about it!
I hope it works out the best for you!
