I think if you don’t pick you will end up not enjoying either.  Pick whomever you feel closer too. 

Perhaps if you and your sister split it up, you will have family representation at both.

You need to pick one.  You don’t know either of the that well, so I’d pick the one you got the wedding invite to first.

It’s incredibly rude to dip out early to go to another wedding/show up late to someone else’s wedding.  If someone told me they were going to miss my ceremony and just come for dinner and dancing, or just my ceremony and missing all the cerebrating after, I’d just say to them, very politely, “We understand that you cannot make it.”

pick one… and send a gift to the other. Remember, if you RSVP to both, the bride will need to pay for you (and your guest’s) seat/meat/favor/etc…  Simply pick and send your regrets to the other bride.

Personally, i would prefer that someone not show up than leave right after the meal- I would feel that they just came for free food.
