Sounds like she won’t mind & I actually think it might work out in your favor. Talk to her about it. You might end up benefitting from using the same colors together.  I have a friend who is getting married in July, 2 months before my wedding. We’re splitting the cost of votive holders, candles, etc & I’ll reuse them after her wedding. We don’t have the same colors though, but just think — table runners, ribbon… all the stuff you guys could buy in bulk or something and split the cost.

It sounds  like she doesn’t care, but who knows? You’re getting married first though, so you wouldn’t be copying! lol you could share things like dancy suggested!

I don’t think you should worry too much. Its not like you could have known and how original can we all be in choosing colors?! If the actual decor is different than no worries at all!

so many people like so many of the same color combos. it just isn’t worth getting upset over. Your weddings will look totally different. dont worry!

My SISTER and I (getting married 5 months apart) have mocked up the exact same centerpieces.  Le sigh.

I think it’ll be fine. It actually might be really fun! If you find something that looks cool but it doesn’t fit with your wedding, you can send it to her and vice versa!

I think you will be fine going with the colors you want and it sounds like she doesnt mind.  Even if she did mind, your weddings will be so different even with similar colors.  My SIL was mad at me for awhile because I chose brown and a turqouise/teal color and she has always wanted light blue and brown for her wedding.  I didnt ever know this and when I found out, I told her the colors would be completely different already and our weddings wouldnt look the same.  She was still upset but eventually got over it (she ended up choosing a hunter green and brown.)  I think she still wanted to do her original colors and I wouldnt have cared if she did because the blues were so different.  I felt bad but I didnt want to change my colors either.

Especially since your venues and wedding will be so stylistic different, I don’t think you’ve got anything to worry from some similar colors!
