The feelings are understandable. But honestly, even after 1 week, everyone except you two and your parents has moved on from your wedding. I’ve known 4 friends to marry on 4 successive weekends. It’s not a big deal.

That said, if the wedding moves so close that it interferes with your honeymoon, stay on homeymoon!

2 hours is not that long, and 3 weeks is long enough.

@feellikeadoofus:  honestly, don’t worry about it. 

my previous marriage was in the middle of wedding season and it seemed that everyone we knew was getting married that summer.  there were weddings every weekend.  not a big deal.  some of my guests couldn’t come due to other commitments.  it didn’t bother me and i certainly didn’t lose any sleep over it.  it happens.  it’s called life.

idk why people bother worrying so much about this stuff. there seems to be nothing at all you can do about it.  idk i guess i just feel like the people i’m really close with will go regardless & whatever else happens happens. if people can’t come, it’ll still be fine…as long as FI’s there Tongue Out

My take….The people that really care about you two will be there for your special day…& since it’s first and you’ve been planning it for awhile & engaged for longer I feel like, not to sound mean, but it will be taken more seriously. I am in no way saying their relationship is not real or to take a crack at short relationships.

Have the boys considered having joint bach parties, and possibly instead of renting 2 tuxes, they could buy one tux and wear it at both weddings (as long as they can agree on colours, which shouldn’t be too hard). That way they don’t really need to pay extra, and then could easily afford both weddings. I would assume though that if they couldn’t afford it they would not have said yes to both, don’t freak out, it will be ok. As a pp said, they are more likely to take your wedding seriously I think.

i’m assuming you asked the groomsmen first? they should have made a commitment to you guys so would they really back out just because this other guy also asked?

and for what it’s worth, DH’s friend went to a wedding in atlanta on saturday and then flew to los angeles for our wedding on sunday. Maid/Matron of Honor went to her friend’s wedding in SF during the afternoon and then to the reception of her husband’s friends’ wedding in los angeles that night. 

if they are important to you, they will make it.
