My wedding is in August and we are doing a ceremony outside with a tent pavillion for the reception. My best friend is also getting married 2 months before me in June and she is looking at venues now. She also wants an outdoor ceremony, which is fine, but she also saw a venue with a tent pavillion as well that she is interested in.
Would you be mad if your weddings are going to be very similar and only 2 months apart? I already booked everything first so I’m obviously staying with what we chose.

diamond101987: August wedding? Is it any surprise that another bride also wants a tent pavilion ?
Your weddings will be individual and special.

So far the only similarities (from what you’ve mentioned ) are the outdoor venues, & tents so no.

No. Most of the weddings I’ve been to are outdoors in the summer under big tents. That’s like being mad that she’s also going to wear a white dress.

Nope. It’s not like she’s booking the same exact venue.

Nope, chances are it’s not the look of your venue that is going to make your wedding unique (think of how many brides have tented pavillions); your relationship and personalities is what will set your wedding apart from others.

diamond101987: Well, if you’re “obviously staying with what you chose” then what’s the point in being mad? Are you going to tell your best friend she shouldn’t have the wedding she wants because she’s stepping on your (very original) plan of having an outdoor wedding with a tent? Are you going to stop speaking with your best friend? Are you planning to ruin your friendship or not attend her wedding if she continues with her plan? I’m guessing (and hoping) no, so no, you shouldn’t be mad because it’s pointless.

No, you shouldn’t be mad. It’s two months apart and it’s your friend, not a sister or close relative so how much guest overlap will there be? you both will have totally different weddings even if the venues are similar in set up.

Pretty common with outdoor weddings, it’s not a huge deal.

diamond101987: Your idea is not singularly unique unto itself. It’s a wedding in a lovely tent. No, I would not be mad. Try not to get caught up in these little things… your guests will find your wedding memorable because of YOU and probably not the tent.

diamond101987: Outdoor weddings are pretty common, and both venues having tents isn’t a surprise. Unless she’s doing at your exact venue, with your exact colour scheme, and your exact bridesmaid dresses, I wouldn’t be mad.

diamond101987: Why would you be mad? Tent weddings a crazy popular so it makes sense that someone else would have one.

Not even a little bit. Do you know how many brides get married in the summer under a tent??? It’s not as though she is borrowing your theme, decore, invitations, bridesmaids dresses, venue, etc. Honestly, don’t stress yourself about stuff like this.

diamond101987: Outdoor tent weddings in summer are very common. As long as the location was different, I wouldn’t be upset at all. Plus the theme, colours, music and everything else will be so different nobody but you’d bat an eyelid 🙂

I’d probably be annoying inside but there’s nothing you can do about it, so you just have to live with it. At least yours is after hers so you can change little details if you think hers is too similar!
