ChristusG Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 I'll try to make this short. Both of my sisters are engaged. To help save my parents some money, they were going to have a double wedding. However, both sisters have opposite ideas as to what they want/need. My 18 year old sister has LOTS of anxiety issues and doesn't want to walk down the aisle with a bunch of people watching. So she's pretty much decided to scrap the double wedding idea and go for something VERY small. My other sister (27 years old) wants their original double wedding idea. My two sisters, along with my mom, have already reserved a place for the wedding. This was before my youngest sister decided she would have too much anxiety to walk down the aisle in front of a large audience. So my 27 year old sister still wants the wedding at the prior determined venue, time, etc. Problem is.....the cost and timing. My parents cannot pay for two weddings and two receptions. Plus, not sure how people would attend two weddings that weekend. Well, only very immediate family will be at my youngest sister's wedding, so that issue wouldn't apply to most people. So they are thinking of having a shared reception after my 27 year old sister's wedding. And maybe my 18 year old sister having her tiny wedding the night before? I'm not sure how it would all work. I'm wondering if the Hive has any other/better/more creative ideas. My 18 year old sister dreams of having all the "bells and whistles" of a wedding, but she knows that if she goes that route, she will be so filled with anxiety that she very well may pass out or something. Not sure how we could work out a great, tiny wedding and have my other sisters wedding, and the reception too. And if the wedding has a wedding party (as my 27 year old sister wants) then when in the world would the rehearsal dinner be? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
