I’ll start off with the fact that I love everything that I’m planning for our wedding. It’s a country/rustic/vintage/romance feel. I grew up in a small town and it’s definitely me (my fiance grew up in the city but he is still happy with the way things are being planned out).
However this weekend I went with FSIL to check out her venue. She is getting married on the 33rd floor of a fancy building with beautiful views of the Boston skyline and harbor – 2 weeks before FI and I are getting married. I admit that the views are great but besides that I wasn’t in love with the venue and definitely wouldn’t have chosen it for myself. I can’t help but be worried though that people are going to be comparing our weddings since they are going to be only two weeks apart and FI’s family will be at both. They are going to be drasticly different weddings, so I guess I’m just scared that people are going to think mine isn’t as nice. I’m probably just being silly and I know it shouldn’t matter what other people think as long as FI and I love it.

People will compare the weddings, but remember that everyone has different tastes and styles. As long as you are happy with your venue and wedding choices, theres no reason to stress.

Don’t worry about it – they are going to be completely different feels! I’d be more worried if you guys were having similar type of weddings – there’s much more room for comparing there! As long as you and FI love your wedding that’s all that truly matters. You cannot control what people think or say – People are always going to judge and compare, and no matter what you do some people just aren’t going to like your wedding for whatever reason. But, it doesn’t matter what everyone else likes as long as you love it! Relax, your wedding will be gorgeous and amazing!

People are going to compare; don’t let it get to you. It’s completely out of your control.

You know, I had the fancy hotel wedding and I didn’t think a country wedding was my taste. A friend had a “country” wedding a few months after we were married and I loved it! You know why? Because it suited her! It was exactly the wedding I pictured for her and it was perfect! It so obviously spoke of the couple and the thing that made it the most beautiful was how happy they were together! That is what I noticed the most! People may compare, but just know that you are having the wedding that is perfect for you and it doesn’t make it any less nice than a hotel wedding!

I would be more worried if yours was comparable but cheaper, e.g. also in Boston but in an older building with a boring view. But your rustic wedding will have a totally, totally different feel and people will appreciate and enjoy that.
