This is not really that uncommon, as long as you arent sharing a bar or common spaces it’ll be fine

Is it a HUGE building? While you hear the music and readings of the other wedding? If not, no worries. 🙂

My venue routinely hosts three weddings every Saturday night – there will be TWO other weddings going on at the same time as mine!

I’m totally cool with it and actually appreciate the fact that these people know how to do weddings because they do them all the time!

A lot of venues we’ve looked into book more than one wedding at once.  Most are built to accommodate that (e.g. good sound barriers, multiple bars).

It’s not a big deal.  We went to a wedding at a place that had another wedding in the next ballroom other and we noticed but didn’t care.  That’s probably part of why the place is cheaper – they’re getting double the income from having two weddings so they can charge less to each.  Some people don’t want this for their wedding but in my experience as a guest it really didn’t matter, so if it doesn’t bother you personally no one else will care.

We use to own a wedding facility and would have 3 going on at the same time.  We always had the start and end times at least 30-60 mins apart so that we weren’t serving food in all 3 buildings at the same time and so that when they left the buildings it would be somewhat staggered and not a traffic jam in the parking lot.

Don’t worry about you’ll be fine and will be so busy that you won’t have time to think about what is going on elsewhere.

I think it’s totally common, especially for bigger venues.  As long as you don’t have to share things with them, I say no big deal!

My venue can host up to three weddings at once.  Don’t worry about it – people do it all the time with no problem or concern what-so-ever!

My venue routinely hosts 2 weddings on Saturdays (especially in the summer months).  We somehow lucked out and no one else booked on our wedding day so we had the entire place to ourselves.  But I wouldn’t worry much about it… I think lots of venues do this if they have multiple banquet rooms.  🙂

The place I used to work could do up to 2 events at the same time and they never interfered with each other.  Where I got married they couldve done more than 2 at a time (and did, I saw another bride but didnt care).  Our guests didnt run into each other, we were on separate sides of the building etc.  There was a room next to ours that they couldnt sold for another wedding but we decided to pay extra to block the room from being sold.  It was just too close, I didnt want our music competing and the guests wouldve share a bathroom.  So that was a no-go but they were fine with blocking the room when I guaranteed a higher F&B minimum  🙂

I’ve been to a zillion weddings like this.  No biggie.  My friends had a tradition when people used to put the disposable cameras on every table.  They would sneak into the other reception, grab one of the cameras and one of them would dirty dance (nothing too suggestive) with the bride while the other one took pictures.
