Why is it that big of deal if you have the same everything? Are you inviting the same people?

Is the ex in tight quarters with you? I can understand the feeling but will most people be attending both weddings?

Yeah not sure why this matters unless you have a lot of overlap in the guest list.

You run that risk with small towns.

The good news is, there is not a huge likelihood that you and your FI’s ex will have much of a guest overlap. 🙂 Not many people will know that you used the same venues. And your weddings are bound to be different, because you’re different people!

I agree with PP you likely don’t have much guest overlap so I don’t really see what the issue is. Also when you go to a small place with limited places you have to expect this. What makes a wedding special is the couple and all the individual details. Even if you do have some double guests I really think it doesn’t matter.

She’s his ex; she’s in his past, and you’re in his future.

I understand that you’re upset, but this is not worth freaking out over. I know that’s easy for a complete stranger to say, but seriously, just focus on your wonderful fiance and what you two have going on. 🙂

Without adout your wedding will be unique to you. Its not a competition. There is enough love in the world to go around, its just happenstance. Its okay to feel that way for this short time, but move on from it quickly. Happy planning.

I wouldn’t worry about it. Just focus on your day with your Fiance and be happy:)
