So, through tripadvisor.com, my husband and I met another couple in our same town that are getting married at our same hotel in Jamaica! CRAZY small world, as the hotel only does 20 weddings a year, and they fill up a year in advance. So! We’ve become friends, and were so excited to talk to friends that really understood where we were coming from w/ planning. (The Rockhouse is quite an experience – I feel like you need to be there and see it for yourself to get the magic!)
We had planned on just gifting them our lanterns, tea lights, whatever we had brought for decor to the wedding, since we know it’s a pain in the toosh to bring down, and coincidentally we really were looking for the same wedding feel. The bride even picked out THE SAME DRESS as me. CRAZY – this was before we met, so no worries about either of us stalking the other, haha. Long story short – we’re better friends with them now, and we found out that they’ll be inviting us to their wedding! We just got back from our trip and already we are contemplating going back? Would it be crazy weird to basically attend your own wedding? I’m not kidding – the decor all the same, buffet too, same transportation company folks, brides’ dress, heck- I think we could even end up in the same hotel room as when we stayed for ours! Do you think that would be insanely fun, or like a weird trip to deja-vu town? We knew we’d go back eventually, but less than 3 months later?
Quoting redherring – WWTHD? hehe.

It’s a beautiful place. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I got to enjoy my wedding as much as say a guest did. I was so busy and it went so fast. If you’re close friends now, why not go and celebrate their marriage?

I think it would be a little weird and you might feel like you were the bizarro version of your wedding, but hey – it’s Jamaica! Go for it if you’ve got the time off and the $$$ to pull it off. It will probably be really amusing after the weirdness factor wears off.

That actually sounds like an awesome opportunity to experience your own wedding as a guest. I would totally be into that.

It might be weird but I totally think it would be worth it!

These were my thoughts too, but I was hoping some practical bees would talk me out of it 😉
How fun to attend our own bizarro wedding! AND to celebrate with new friends?
