So there was a huge miscommunication issue within my family, and long story short we found out my cousin is getting married the same day as me, and her reception is 5 minutes away from mine. Who should I expect to stay at mine the whole time and who should I expect to see going back and forth?
My wedding is at 2 and my reception at 5, her wedding isn’t until 6.
I want to go to hers to say hi after mine, but what do I wear? Obviously not my dress. Ideas. Help.

wow…thats totally weird! Get a reception dress and head over. Afterwards. You guys should have just shared the cost and done it together!

Oh man that blows. Well, I think you can wear whatever you want as long as its not white to HER wedding.
Im surprised youre even going! Id be exhausted!

Any chances one of you can change dates?…I know my extended family would be pissed if something like this happened.

@rachaelrobin: I agree.
Maybe you can come together and do an afterparty together so that people can celebrate with the both of you.

if it is your family I am pretty SURE they will all know you both got married on the same day–I really don’t think she could/should be mad or offended if you were taking time off from YOUR wedding to go to hers wedding dress or no wedding dress.
I know my family would be PISSED if there was this sort of miscommunication, a day after due to a miscommunication, sure whatever, people would just make it a long weekend, but the same DAY with overlapping time frames? yeah not cool. It would have been way easier if one of you was having a morning wedding and the other not starting until the evening.
Is there any chance someone can re-book or something?

I agree. How far into planning are you? I honesly would rebook mine for the week before. 😉 Especially since I would want to get to enjoy her wedding too.

I’m sorry this is happening, how close are you? I’m close to one set of cousins, but not the other.

We can’t rebook since the weekend before is 9/10/11 and everyone wanted that date before I even though of it, and one of my friends is getting married the next weekend. Who know September was such a crazy wedding month?
@blondilocks I like your thinking, I’ve come to accept it as a funny coincidence and a good excuse to buy a cute dress!

I would ask my cousin how she feels about me showing up for a picture outside with her with both of us in our dresses! I would do a reception dress for her party since everyone knows your wedding is the same day.
