So annoyed my fellow bees. There is another couple in our group of friends who are getting married after me. They got engaged first but their wedding isn’t till June and ours is in May. When they first got engaged I asked them how wedding plan was and their were very secretive about everything. Not disclosing much details or anything. They asked 2 of my bridesmaids to be in their bridal party. They only contact me when they want to know how much I paid for stuff and that’s about it but they would never disclose anything about theirs. So annoyed like stop asking me. Usually I am very helpful and willing to help anyone else out when they have a question but I’m sick and tired of being nice. Turns out they are using the same color as me also for the wedding. If I had known they were going to use that color I would have chosen something else. I told the other groom I was using this color. I would never use the same color as someone else who is getting married the same year where we will have the same group of friends attending. We sent out our invitations in February to everyone. To top it off on my bachelorette party my fiance sends me a copy of their wedding invitation which we just received last week and they are holding their wedding ceremony at the same location as us. They never said a word to us about it nor did they mention it to anyone. Who the hell does that? At least have the courtesy to mention it to us. We have been friends for years who does that? seriously? so annoyed and one of my bridesmaid who is also their bridesmaid knew about it and didn’t even bother to tell me. She said it wasn’t a big deal. I wanted to ring her neck. I got over it after a few days and then I receive a email from them saying their website is up and running. I looked at it and the first thing I see is that it is the same color as our website which we posted up awhile ago. Then the same bridesmaid who forgot to tell me that they were having it there said she doesn’t see the similarities. Of course you won’t you didnt even sign my guest book but you signed theirs how would you know it’s not similar when you probablby didn’t even look at mines.
I have waited my whole life for this one big day and first I was annoyed about all this copying and then I felt depressed waking up thinking about this. I didn’t spend endless amounts of time and effort to create this vision to have someone else copy the same ideas as me.

at least everyone will see your wedding stuff first so they’ll know who the copycats are… 🙂

At least your wedding is first, so everyone will know where she got her ideas.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Your is first, so it’s going to be pretty apparent she copied you if thats what she’s doing. Either way, I wouldnt care of someone used my location, had my colors, hell even bought my same freaking dress for their wedding, mine will be special to me no matter what anyone else does.

I agree with the PPs. Your wedding is first, so it’s not you who is going to look foolish.

they are just making themselves look bad. I wouldnt do anything, stay the more mature one.

No one notices colors and all that nonsense anyway. Your invitation will probably get thrown in the trash after the wedding is over with anyway. Don’t worry about that. People will remember the environment and how much fun they had. They will probably remember the good dinner they got to eat, and how the ceremony made them cry. But your color? No way.

Like everyone else said here, your wedding is first. I don’t think it is that big of a deal anyway.

While it’s a little rude for the other couple to use the same color or venue as you, it’s not like you’ve got a monopoly on it, so I think you just need to let it go. You don’t own a color, nor did they try to steal your date at your venue. People pick colors and venues based on what they like, and often they like it because they’re inspired by something else.

While the colors may be the same, and even the venue, their decor and everything else may be different. You could be ‘rustic’ while they are ‘vintage’ or ‘modern’… not a single guest will notice, even if they attend both anyway. Everyone is going to be focusing on the bride and groom of the event at hand, and they’ll be busy eating, mingling, dancing, drinking, etc. If you ask the guests a week after the second wedding if they remember the decor of either event, I doubt most could recall much.

Like PP’s have said, at least your wedding is first 🙂 And I’m sure that with two separate couples, the two weddings will have completely different aspects.. aside from colors.. unless you all have the exact same taste lol. Just try & stay focused on what its all about: marrying the love of your life, & don’t let all the other stuff get you down 🙂 Congratulations BTW!

Don’t sweat it, everyone is going to know they copied you if they notice at a all. Truthfully people don’t notice wedding colors. Seriously can you name anyone else’s colors. Only the bride sees these things. It’s not worth upsetting yourself over. Just be sure not to share anymore details!
