Just because someone has a bigger wedding, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be more amazing than yours.

I had a big wedding and I wish I didn’t.  I didn’t even get to talk to most of my guests for more than 10 seconds.  My guests did have a blast, but I didn’t.  I wish I had something more intimate.  And at our reception venue, we were the “biggest” wedding, but I really envied those that had the smaller more intimate receptions.

Bigger isn’t always better.

It’s so easy to drive yourself crazy (I’m guilty of it too!) by comparing your wedding to other weddings – thanks internet.  

On the day of, you probably won’t even notice the other wedding; you will be so wrapped up in your day and your celebration.  If the venue is used to multiple weddings in one day, I bet they have a way of keeping the parties separate as well; you can always ask them!  Just ask for reassurance that you won’t be fighting for photo space, that the guests will easily find their ways from point A to B without being confused by the other wedding, etc. I’m sure they will be able to calm some of your fears.

And I agree with the PP – bigger isn’t always better. I was railroaded during the guest list process and I’m dreading having to talk to people I don’t even know on my wedding day.

What’s the big deal? My venue has two rooms too, one holds 300 the other holds 120, and I have the smaller. They have another wedding that night but they make sure the brides never see each other. You probably won’t even notice.

There is another wedding happening on my day too, their reception is in the next room – as in we share a bathroom. I probably won’t see the other bride but who knows.

I did worry a bit that people from that wedding will be peeking in at mine (also a smaller room than the one next door) but I can’t worry about stuff I can’t control. Maybe I will see her and get a photo with her for fun 🙂

You can’t worry about guests seeing the other party and thinking it looks better. Yours is better because all your guests have a connection to you.
