    It would depend on how close I was to that person. If they were a distant friend or acquaintance or distant relative I’m not close to I probably wouldn’t attend, but then I don’t attend weddings of people my Fiance or myself aren’t close to anyway. If it was someone I was close to I would be there. Nothing can really compete or ruin with your own special day because of the meaning behind your own wedding (in my opinion).

    I would attend.  I think it would be great to see how things worked there and it would help me envision how my day would look and go.

    I would attend.  If someone told me that’s why that weren’t coming I would be a little . . .baffled.

    I don’t think that reason would cross my mind, I would totally attend!

    I would definitely attend.  Your wedding is about you and your fiance, so having been in the same place to watch someone else get married should not make any sort of difference.

    I might think it was a little awkward, but I don’t think it would even cross my mind to skip it.

    Also wanted to add; a month ago and last weekend two girls I know got married at my venue I did not attend their weddings (although I wasn’t invited either), but I have loved looking at their pictures and seeing how they set it up and decorated. It doesn’t make me feel like my venue is any less special or my day will be any less special because other brides are getting married at the same place I am. It just gives me a good vision of what it will be like and the different ways I can decorate.

    I find it really hard to fathom that someone who is considered close enough to me to invite to my wedding would decline due to being at the same venue as their wedding. I am lost for words.

    My brother and his wife got married in the same venue as Fiance and I.  As well as 4 other couples for both venues and one other couple for the reception.  I also had my HS proms there.  I think the decorations and overall mood make each event different. 

     

    And my Brother and SIL had weddings the 4 weekends before their wedding.  They just enjoyed being the last of the bunch.

    I voted no because my weddding venue is in Hawaii and I live on the east coast so that would be crazy for me to do one month before my own wedding. However, if it were in my home town I would go. The venue might be the same but the celebration and the decor is different.
