Just reserved our venue and date. Absolutely love it but it’s the same place my brother got married to his Mrs. It’s the best priced venue we’ve found in the whole county and has everything we want. Everyone we know knows someone who’s married there - so it’s not easy to avoid! We’re going to set things up differently from my brothers wedding of course, but I still feel like him and his wife are unhappy about it and angry with me. Should I do something or shrug it off?
I can't see any reason why they should be angry with you, your wedding will be different to theirs so what's the problem? I personally would talk to them and find out what the issue is but also reassure them that you are not trying to copy them. Good luck!
Just explain to them your in love with the venue & you haven’t done it to copy them it’s the perfect place
Just tell them that you thought they made such a good choice for their wedding which was so perfect there that you wanted to go there too, although do it differently so as not to copy them.
They should be happy for you..... and agree with Susan above, spin it around on them if they are pissy - say they had a perfect choice and it was their wedding that made u decide on there (just lie if it wasnt haha) but just make sure its not the same, lots of different decorations, make it unique to you
If they aren't happy for you that is there problem not yours.
You will have different decorations and it may also be set up differently from how they set it up.
If they aren't happy they are just being selfish. It doesn't damage the day they had. The should be really happy you have chosen the same place, it incorporates their day and makes it more special. As long as your are not copying their wedding 100% they really shouldn't be issued.
