Family situations suck. Your mom’s probably right that many sisters do choose the same hall, but the same hall, cake and a similar dress definitely sounds like she’s well…unoriginal at best. If I were you, I would do a ton of DIY projects that will make your wedding stand out from hers and show that you put a ton of love into your wedding.

Wow sounds like your sister is jealoussssss! I hate to say it but the similarities in your cake and dress, sound like she’s trying to make it look like your trying to be like “big sis”.  I agree with jo.lee and you should do tons of DIY projects, to make it stand apart from your sisters. (make sure you don’t tell her about them!).

It seems like you’re getting married for the right reasons while your sis is getting married just to beat you, because the older sister is supposed to be married and have kids first. (recipe for disaster, if you ask me!)

Don’t let it ruin your day, It’ll be great and it’ll be YOURS. (as for her announcing her pregnancy if it does happen, you could always be the one to announce it and kind of take the initial spotlight away from her, haha). 😉

I think what’s done is done as far as the dates go but there are plenty of ways to still make the your wedding day stand apart from your sisters.

First off, try to let this go (I know it’s annoying but it’s the only way you are going to be able to enjoy your planning process). Next, just don’t share the rest of your ideas with her. If she’s taken your hall, your cake and your dress- don’t share with her about your hair, your first song, or any other little things that you were excited about. If she asks you why not, you can politely say that you just want your days to be as unique as possible.

I agree with the PP – start some DIY projects focused around you and your FI- start thinking about something that you like as a couple and start a theme based off that idea- do you guys have a favorite song, movie, season? 

Also just try and remember that even if she copies EVERYTHING you do, down to the color you paint your toenails, at the end of the day you will be married to your love.
