…now I clearly need to get her addicted to WB, like me! I am super excited for her – she and her now-fiance have been together for over three years, and they’re an awesome couple. Now we’ll have two family weddings being planned at once – I am just over halfway through my year-long engagement (wedding in May). Have any of you ladies been in a similar situation? Did you find that the engagement overlap added to the fun or increased the chaos?

I am the Maid/Matron of Honor for my best friends wedding a month before mine and she is the Maid/Matron of Honor in mine!
It has definitely been double the fun and has made the planning so much fun!
It is great to have someone you are close with going through the same issues!

Congrats to your sister (and to you)!!
I have my fingers crossed that the same thing will happen for me. I can’t imagine how wonderful it would be to plan two weddings with my best friend. Her Boyfriend or Best Friend just asked for her parents’ blessing and my Boyfriend or Best Friend is working on something (I hope I don’t learn anything else), so here’s hoping!

Awesome! I am not in this same situation; but I admire your attitude about it. I’ve seen plenty of other posters who aren’t too excited when things like this happen!! Congrats & Good Luck 🙂

Congrats to your sister! I’m sure you’ll have fun planning together! 🙂
My brother and I got engaged one week apart, it’s been fun to share the experience. They’re both in our bridal party too!

aww! Congrats!! I wish I had someone that was getting married at the same time I was! FI’s cousin might be getting engaged soon, & probably married not long before us, so we’ll see. We’re not super close, but we talk & she’s a year older than us. Our Bridesmaid or Best Man & his wife got married over the summer-only a 2 month engagement, and we’re pretty close, so it was hard not being able to talk to her about stuff bc she didn’t really have to worry about or do the same things as me.

Yay! You will have so much fun planning together! And you can talk weddings to her all you want, and she won’t care!
Lucky for me, I found WB to for all my wedding talk. If I talked about weddings this much to my friends they would be ready to kill me LOL.

Best wishes to your sister! I think that it would be so fun to plan my wedding with my sister planning hers at the same time! 🙂 Enjoy it!!

Thanks, everyone! She’s been a super supportive Maid/Matron of Honor so far – I guess one clear benefit will be that all the wedding blather I already bother her with will suddenly be a lot more relevant and interesting to her!

Congratulations to your sister! A girl in my grad school class went through that with her sister too. I think it totally depends on the family. They are a pretty close family it seemed and it didn’t appear to be a problem.

My sister/MOH got engaged two weeks ago! So far it has just increased the fun for everyone except maybe my poor father and his bank account. It’s been a lot of fun to hear about her ideas and give her advice, she’s going to look at some venues today. She will probably end up getting married about six months after I do.

I got engaged half a year before my sister did, i didnt really plan when I first got engaged because I was pregnant so I was planning on starting as soon as baby popped out. As soon as my sister got engaged I was so excited for her, we had an awesome bridal shower for her and bachelorette party and her wedding was awesome! Right after her wedding me and Fiance finally set a date and I asked her to be my matron of honor and she was excited and said yes! But, yesterday she emailed me to tell me she is declining from the wedding and doesnt want to be in it at all, i tried to talk to her but we ended up arguing and now im extremely hurt by her. How could she do this to me you know? I was there for her through her plans and big day and she doesnt want to be here for me, so I hope you and your sis doesnt bump heads in any way like this

Congratulations to you and your sister!
My sister just got engaged 2 weeks ago and I can’t wait to see her over the holiday s and talk wedding planning. Mine’s been over for 6 months so I can’t wait to dive back in with her!
