Today, I found out that my fiancé's sister, who only got engaged a couple of months ago, is getting married before us. I wouldn't have a problem with this if she wasn't planning her wedding to be exactly like ours will be. FML

@23 A wedding is about putting your heart into an important day. Someone who copies it is stealing from the OP and ruining the day she and her fiancé planned

The wedding is just the icing on the cake. It's there for looks. Not the most important thing. What's really important is the love op and her fiancé have. Sure planning was probably hell but that's just it. "Planning" that's all it is. No wedding ever goes perfectly.

I wouldn't mind someone copying my wedding as much if it was AFTER mine. The sister here is stealing the idea while most likely trying to make it look like it was op who stole the idea. I'd be incredibly upset too.

Not necessarily, my husband's sister pulled the exact same crap and he couldn't do anything about it. We took it a step higher, my MIL and kept the rest of our planning a secret. She had to pull together something else at the last minute and had a Valentine's Day type wedding in the spring. She's complained about her wedding not being what she wanted since. The poor man she married.....

If you told her about what your wedding will be like then she probably did steal your ideas. Tell her a new idea and say that you and your fiancé are doing this new idea and see if she changes it.

You should probably start making sure that she never hears another wedding planning detail!

Tell her false info about how your wedding is going to be and make sure to have someone close to her explain why that isn't the right thing to do. Also if you can exclude her from any of the planning is she was involved before

Since weddings are usually special and intimate to the couple getting married in particular, it seems rather less special and intimate if you're sharing it with another couple. Usually you want it to be YOUR day.

@12 I would never share such a special day with someone like that or in general. It will be a day that unites my bf and I. And if anyone uses it for their own proposal, I would cry

marriage is a one time thing dude, I see where you're coming from but it's a bond in front of family, friends, and God (unless you're atheist) to be with each other forever no matter what it's not a day to share..

Along with what everyone else said I honestly could not share my wedding with some one who decided to steal my wedding plans. Plus the sister in law seems like a huge brat and would probably try and make it all about her anyway.
