I agree that it is unfair to expect someone to stop their life for you.
That being said, my FSIL is due 8 days after my wedding. This is my FH's brother's wife (not FH's sister), and she is not in the BP. We picked our date last January and she made it very clear that after her sister's wedding in May they were going to start trying.
I have come to terms with it and am VERY happy for them! I was hurt at first and thought it was a bit selfish (due STRICTLY to the timing) she will be 9 months pregnant at the wedding and if the baby is early she and FBIL (FH's BM) will not be at the wedding. I thought this was unfair to FH and his brother, but hopefully all will workout and they will be there.
So the moral of the story is we need to be happy for those around us, and not forget that they have lives to lead besides our weddings.
And just tell her to plan ahead and not to be 9 months pregnant at the wedding!! That's not too much to ask right??
