Do what you want and don’t worry about what she’s doing. Wedding planning is stressful enough without feeling like you have to compete.

I think you’re feeling like….you put all that hard work into planning something special, and now she’s going to do it first, so it won’t seem THAT special at your wedding.  However, most of what people remember at a wedding are the food, the cake, the dress, and the party. Decor? Not so much. Yours can still be unique, with something fun like a mashed potato bar, or a really awesome cake.  Colors of the bridal party attire are pretty common across the board.  I’ve seen some really unique ones lately, but we did tiffany blue and brown which is very common, but it still felt special to us because we chose it.  Take a deep breath and remember: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  🙂

Oh honey, I can assure you that no matter what your brother in law and his bride come up with, what you and your fiancé do, it’s all been thought up, written down and done a hundred times before.  As a seasoned wedding guest, I never would have noticed or commented on something that was similar between two weddings, because they ARE similar, they’re weddings and no matter how you slice it, cook it or serve it, it’s the same dish on a different plate AND they are all lovely!  I attend weddings because I’m happy for the couple getting married, I love having an excuse to take a pair of expensive heels for a spin and I am always inspired by the sheer magnitude of the commitment we make to each other when we’re in love….not to do research and development on the latest trend in wedding favors or chair covers.  What will set the day apart is you and your Fiance because everyone loves differently, so try not to worry about it, you’ve got bigger fish to fry!
