@Bridesecret:   As others have advised – don’t share any further details, and if pressed, make something up.  lol

@Bridesecret:  It’s not the same venue and it’s not the same date. Unfortunately, your friend is able to pick whatever she wants, even if it was the same venue. I mean, you could let this ruin your friendship, or you could step back and realize that you both get one day each, and make it as spectacular as you can!

… also you can always try to wedding one-up her, since her wedding’s first…

This is England. It is positively scattered with Elizabethan Manors! As it is with castles and other ancient buildings. Many of which are kept from crumbling into history because they do weddings or corporate hospitality.

Now I know this must be frustrating for you but I think you need to take a step back a moment and get this into perspective. Her wedding and yours will be totally different. They are at quite different venues, for starters, even if the genre of architecture is similar.

@Bridesecret:  I honestly don’t understand why you’re upset. Is your venue so unique to your area that no one else besides you has ever used the same type of venue? Are you having most of the same guests?

Two of my potential venue choices are the same exact venues used by good friends of mine. I do not intend to ask them for permission should I choose one of those, nor would I care if someone I know got married at my venue before or eafter me. I mean… Look at it this way. They’re not wearing your dress, using your decor, or marrying your fiance. It’s going to be a very different wedding!
