I honestly think you have to choose.

Yea, go to the one you would feel more comfortable at. Going to both seems like a lot of work and you really wouldn’t have time to enjoy either of them.

@littleprettyliz:  I was going to say the same thing! If you do both, study up with some 27 Dresses!

Just choose one. It sounds like you aren’t particularly close to either of them, so it’s not worth the trouble of going to both and I think going to all of one and skipping the other (but sending a gift) is much more polite than going to part of both

I suggest picking one.  It seems like you won’t be able to enjoy either of them.   If choosing is not an option, then I suggest just telling the one you are arriving to late.

Pick one and decline the other. My wedding date is seemingly the same as two other couples that we share mutual friends with. I understand if some opt to go to the other weddings over mine. Dipping in and out of weddings to attend both is not something I would recommend. Unless they are right next door to one another, the time, effort, and gas is just not worth it.

Unfortunately, I think you need to make a choice.  This has happened to me TWICE now.  You can’t be in two places at once, and honestly, I think it’s a little rude to leave one wedding early to attend another wedding.

Which one is your sister going to?  Maybe you could go to the other one.

I think you’d have more fun by just picking one.  it’s a toughy though…

Attend one ceremony and the other reception?

@Stace126:  I would just hit up the dance of one, and go to the dinner of the other.

one of my friends just told me she was waiting on another persons invite/rsvp to figure out what she was gonna do. my wedding and someone she knows is having a wedding on the same day… i would not let the brides know u are thinking bout going to both or picking one… it hurt when she said she didnt know which wedding she was gonna attend. and the fact she isnt going with “well i got ur invite first so i will go to ur wedding” is rude…

 

 

not to thread jack but isnt there like some sort of first come first serve rule about whose wedding u go to if mutliple weddings hapen on same day
