I don’t have a typical ceremony space. Its at my Great Uncle’s house in the back/side yard. We picked the space for the amazing view(tree covered mountains that should be close to peak season, a river and a couple of horses) and then we’re doing the reception elsewhere. My dad told me the other day that a lady from my Great Uncle’s church also wants to get married that day at his house.
I’m not sure if it will be worth the stress to agree to let them also use the property. What would you girls do in this situation? We’re doing a 3 pm wedding and the guys are vetting ready there.

Well ultimately it is your uncle’s decision, as it is his property, but if he is leaving the decision up to you, I would say no. It is your family’s space, and the guys are getting ready there.

It depends. What time is the other wedding at? If it is early enough like 10 or 11 or after yours like 6, I don’t see the issue.
Hey maybe you could even split the costs of the decorations if you have similar tastes!

Nope. This is way too much in my opinion. She can pick another day.

@wisher558: I personally wouldn’t like the idea….but I know how I am and that would stress me out like crazy!! If her wedding is first then it would have to be cleaned up and is here a professional crew coming in to do that? My thoughts are this is a personal residence….who is cleaning up the bathrooms and clearing out allthe trash, etc betw the weddings? What if it isn’t done on time is what I’d be stressing over…..The only way I’d be ok with it f my wedding were first! But thats just my opinion!

Ceremonies are short so there’s plenty of time in a day to do two ceremonies. I would do it if she’s willing to split the cost of flowers, chairs, and other decorations.

That was one of the number one things I looked for in a venue – that there would be absolutely zero other brides there on that day. Even in another room. I think that if you are able to say no (not sure of the situation) I would say no.

I’m a laid-back, whatever goes kind of person, but I wouldn’t allow this. If there wedding was before yours, what if they decorated it and decided not to clean it up? You would be stuck cleaning it up and decorating it. If it was after yours then I would be more okay with it.

I would only do this if their wedding is after yours. I wouldn’t want to take the chance of the grass getting ripped up or something happening to my setup by having the other wedding earlier.
Budget the time you need for ceremony and pictures, add a half an hour, and say she can have the venue starting then.

@Atalanta: I haven’t talked to her yet so I’m not sure what time she wants her ceremony. She did tell my great uncle we could split the cost of chair/tent rentals.
The other thing I forgot to mentionis that I don’t have a wedding planner or doc. So if her wedding is before mine I have no idea how I’d set up my stuff.I

Just talked to the other bride and she’s moving her wedding to Sunday. I am so relieved and happy!
It’s a 2nd wedding for her and her fiance decided not to take away from our special day and be intrusive. So glad that everything is working out!!!
