I know so many people who have gotten married at the same church as family members or friends did. I’ve never known anyone to complain about it being “copying”.

Get married where you want to. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do. It’s your day, your wedding, your choices.

You could get married in the same church a month apart and it wouldn’t matter. Unless she was the first person to think about marrying there, it’s not “copying.” Just pick the venue you want.

I think it’s so common for family to get married in the same church, that even if it isn’t the ‘family church’ no one would think it was copying or odd.

My sister and I got married in the same church.  Her in-laws were married in it too.  My sister nor her husband have ever attended it.

coachhw:  Many families marry in the same church- some because it is the only church where they live.

I wouldn’t give this another moment’s thought.

coachhw:  There is nothing wrong with using the same venue as your cousin. I know siblings who have married in the same church.

I think it’s fairly common for family members to get married in the same church. I wouldn’t even think twice about it if I was your cousin or a guest.
