    One of my bridesmaids has chosen my wedding date the year later and I find it so strange! Am I overreacting or would you be upset too??
    Our one year anniversary will now go down the drain as we will be at their wedding and won’t be able to celebrate

    On one hand I know that dates in venues are a bit dodgy at the moment, where everyone has had to move their dates around in the pandemic venues are much more booked up accommodating people that had to cancel and move their dates over 2020/21. It may be that the venue she wanted was booked up and this was one of the only options if she didn't want to wait?

    But in saying that, I wouldn't want to take away from my friends' special day regardless, especially if it was her FIRST anniversary. Given the choice of waiting a little longer or taking the shine off my friend, I'd want to wait a little longer. I'd be totally upset if it was done to me and I couldn't enjoy my first celebration of a year of being married - you should be able to celebrate your first year together, it's the first year of your new life together with your OH. I don't blame you for being upset, your feelings could have been considered a bit more by her.

    Why not embrace it ..... maybe she has done it in a bit of a tribute to you.... you will be able to celebrate your anniversary’s together
