Red face Irrational vent for the day...

I know I'm being a baby, but I'm a little ticked. DH has a very close knit extended family, and his cousin sent out her wedding invitations. The date? 2 days after my DS's birthday. Obviously, we were planning on having his birthday that weekend since the weekend before would be a lot farther out from the actual day. The part that irks me isn't necessarily the fact that we now have to move the date of his party to the weekend before, it's that no one will probably travel to us to make it because they won't want to travel 2 weekends in a row..and let's face it - a one years olds birthday, or a wedding? People will make the wedding. Just kind of bummed I KNOW that this cousin knows the date of his birthday, too. And she is unemployed and her fiance only works part time so it's not like they were unable to pick another date. Oh well, vent over

Re: Irrational vent for the day...

Aw, I'm sorry. I was annoyed when my SIL planned her baby shower for the same weekend as DS#3's birthday. She could have done it anytime, too. But I don't think it was even on her radar. A lot of times, people just aren't thinking about little things like someone else's kid's birthday when they are focused on their own major life events.

Re: Irrational vent for the day...

Maybe you could schedule your ds's birthday as a morning after the wedding breakfast event? They'd already BE there, and let's face it they need breakfast before they get on the road.

While that stinks. There could be lots of reasons why they picked that date. Why can't you have your DS's birthday party that weekend since everyone will be in town.

When we planned our wedding-- we picked a date we both liked. We didn't give any thought to other's birthdays or anniversaries. That was the date we wanted. Call it selfish or whatever but it was my wedding.

I was going to suggest something like this! We have a pretty big extended family and there have been a number of times that we've had family events doubled up on the same weekend, since everyone's already in town.

This. Our wedding fell on our best mans birthday and one other guest.

Sorry, but I wouldn't move my wedding for anyones birthday.

Re: Irrational vent for the day...

My cousin just got married 2 days before my son's birthday, we told him it was a big party for him and he had a blast.

Of course, he was turning 3; first birthdays are really sentimental for me so I would be bummed, too.

I love this idea! Any way you could do something like this?
