Now, I put “crisis” in quotations for a reason. I realize, whole heartedly, that this is not a real “crisis.” I have promised myself (and my FH for that matter) from the VERY beginning of our engagement that I would not lose sight of what this day is about. No matter what happens, this day is about marrying the love of my life and soaking in the fact that he’s just crazy enough to marry me. I’m prefacing this post with that. Okay?
But still…here it is: my ex-boyfriend and his fiance and having their reception at the same place Mr. St. Louis and I are.
I know, I know, it’s petty. But STILL. C’mon…work with me here.
I come from a small town, so there are going to be people at both weddings. Is it completely wrong of me to be just a tiny bit bridezilla about them having the same special place as us?
How about you? Did you have anything like this happen while planning?

your reception will be better 😉 no worries, that’s what people will talk about, how much better yours was

I understand how you feel, but, your wedding won’t be anywhere near the same. I don’t think anyone will think anything of it that you are getting married at the same place. Just gives you more reason to make it all about you and your FI! I doubt anyone will compare weddings, because you all are very different people

@Ms. St. Louis: Yeah, I think that would irk me a tiny bit. Then again, you did say you come from a small town, so it doesn’t seem like there are that many options in your area, is that right? So the odds of you and your ex choosing the same place were pretty high to begin with, yes?
Let it roll off your back. Though you may be in the same venue, it is only a venue. The event of the wedding itself will be very different and unique to you. Bring some sage to clear out any unwanted energy the day of your wedding. 😉

I wouldn’t worry about it. Like you said it’s a small town. I’d be worried if you were both in NYC and then chose the same venue (that’d be creepy and weird)!!

Thanks, ladies! I feel better after I vented a bit and it is confirmed that maybe I am not completely crazy. There weren’t a huge amount of choices of venues…most definitely nothing like NYC. I should have expected someone I knew along the way to discover my little gem of a venue.
@Cornflakegirl- GREAT idea with the sage! Doing that for sure 🙂
