    I think you should go. It gives you time to take a breather from your own planning and actually enjoy yourself. Believe me you need these breaks from time to time to keep you less stressed!

    It depends. Will there be travel involved?

    If it’s just local and you won’t be leaving for a destination wedding the day after I would go. But I would probably bow out early rather than stay till the very end.

    I would say if it was a very good friend though either which way I would go!

    This happened to us except we were the first wedding.  I declined their wedding invitation because we’d be on our honeymoon so then they declined ours. I really wasn’t expecting them to come to ours anyway. So my feelings were not hurt at all.

    Go! By then everything should be done and is a very hours really worth ruining a friendship over. And be honest would you actually be running around doing last minute wedding stuff on a Saturday night the week before, maybe during the day but I doubt at night. Go have fun, enjoy yourself and blow off some steam during this stressful time.

    I would totally go! Why not? Plus, since you know about it so far ahead of time, you should be able to schedule your planning so that you can fit in a night off.  And it might make you realize any necessary little things you forgot about…

    Is it near where you live?  If so, I would go.  But if it requires traveling across the country, then I wouldn’t.

    If it’s local, you should definitely go.   It can help you relax and let loose a bit.  Also, it may be helpful to observe what that couple does for their event to make sure you haven’t missed or forgotten anything for your own event.

    I would go if it was local. If there was more than two hours of travel involved, I wouldn’t. Even though we were crazy organized, we still had a ton to do the weekend before our wedding!

    Go! Have some fun!  Seriously, if your ducks aren’t all in a row the week before your own wedding, it’s not likely another evening of worry/planning is going to get them that way 🙂  Enjoy the break!

    We are in Cleveland.  We have friends in Vegas who are getting married two weeks after us – in Cleveland (that’s where they are from)..  We will be going to their wedding, as it’s about 4 days after we get back from our Honeymoon, but I’m not sure they are going to come to ours… Maybe if they are intown early for theirs?

    I’m with everyone else.  If it’s local then go.  If not, skip it.

    Of course I would go!  Wedding are so much fun, and the pressure won’t be on you.

    My sister had this happen that went to a Vegas wedding the week before there own Pennsylvania wedding. She didn’t have to work that week. She got married on the 30th of the month and worked all her days in early in the month. She’s a flight attendant. She did the same thing in reverse the following month.
