Unmarried Sibling’s Sister Wedding

Here is another e-mail from and I hate weddings.com reader:

I am currently trying to plan my wedding. I am in a tough spot.

On the weekend in April 2012 when I want to get married, my brother's birthday is on Saturday. I know having a wedding on an unmarried sibling's birthday is the ultimate thunderstealing.

So which is worse, getting married on a sibling's birthday or getting married on a Sunday? I'm guessing I'll have to choose the Sunday to get married.

How about this? If you're planning that far away why not pick May 2012? That'll make your single sibling less suicidal. Don't be a thunder stealing douche bag.

Bought Close To Registry, Told To Return It

Single Aunt Going To Niece's Wedding

We have "fan mail" from someone who is 40, single (not by choice) and has to go to her niece's wedding.

Is it horrible to not want to go to my nieces wedding? I'm 40 and still single. It isn't by choice. I really want to be in a relationship. Over the past few years my biggest nightmare is that my niece or nephew would get married before me and I wouldn't even have a boyfriend. How do I get out of this without hurting them?

Let's see if we can help our friend out! Read my response and leave comments!
