I’m sorry, I’m a little confused. You’re marrying yourself??

Yeah, if I were friends with someone who was “marrying themself” I would mostly think they needed attention and wanted to make a splash, and would react the same. Marriage in every culture I know of involveds TWO parties, reguardless of who those two parties are. And yeah, if one of my friends was “marrying themself” before my wedding, I would raise an eyebrow too.

this was a lifetime movie- i dont think it worked out the way she wanted it to either. i think if you’re trying to make a statement, you can’t expect people to help you make a statement they don’t agree with.

I agree with the PP, I don’t understand it at all. But to each their own. If this is something that is special to you and you have clearly explained it to your loved ones they should support you. I’m sorry that they hurt your feelings.

Is this a joke? Is this some sort of homage to Sex and City when Carrie says she is marrying herself?

@wolfpackforever:  While I don’t understand the whole thing, I don’t think you’re stealing her thunder at all. Her wedding is quite a bit before yours. She’s just being silly.

Wasn’t this an episode of Glee?  Sue Sylvester wanted to marry herself and even invited the Obamas? 

I don’t know that I would take someone doing this too seriously either.  Sorry.  It does come off as very attention seeking especially since someone close to you is also planning a wedding. 

Why not just throw yourself a really awesome birthday party or something?  Why do a wedding?

So how does this work? Are you doing the whole ceremony with a big white dress and then reception afterwards? How much are you budgeting for all this? Do you still do a cake cutting and other traditions?

In any case, your friend getting married in September needs a reality check. Like we say here on this site, you only get one day. You cannot steal her thunder no matter what you do in February.
