Need some unbiased opinions...  
I'm not trying to be petty and I don't want to be labeled a Bridezilla or anything, but this is bothering me and I need some people outside of the situation to give me their opinion. My brother sprung this on us Sunday evening at our birthdzy gathering. I'm a little pissed about...

My 37-year-old brother and his 25-year old girlfriend (of about six months) are planning to sashay up to my honeymoon destination exactly one month before my wedding to get married.

It's spring break for his kids. He said specifically he tried to schedule it away from my wedding.

Here are the reasons I'm not happy about it:
1. Why can't they wait until summer? It'll only be 2-3 months later and be much more convenient for everyone.
2. Why does it have to be where I am going on my honeymoon?
3. Nobody is going to be able to go or do anything for them really because of my wedding and six months from now he's going to start making comments like "Well, nobody did anything for me when I got married blah blah blah."

Ok, so...???

Have you voiced your concerns to him?

Not yet. I'm trying to sort out my feelings and decide what I should be feeling before I discuss it with him.

Yeah. I'd be of two minds about this. Partially because imitation and flattery... I'd feel like he liked our idea. But I'd probably feel a bit like you, that he could have waited, or even gone somewhere similar.

Wow. Tough situation.
