Okay, so I have a wedding dilemma. I may have mentioned it before, I can't remember. In October, I have two weddings in the same weekend, once of which I am a bridesmaid in. The weekend in question is Columbus Day weekend, so it is the long holiday weekend. Wedding #1, on Saturday, is in NH. Wedding #2, on Sunday, is in CT. There are roughly 3 1/2 hours between the two locations and this is a drive that I know very well, since I went to school in CT nearby, so I can totally cut it down to less than three hours, I think ;)
Wedding #1 is my sister's best friend. They've been best friends since they were in 6th grade (I was in 10th), so I've known her a long, long time. She's very close to my family and her family is as well. My sister is the MoH in her wedding, my parents and my brother and his girlfriend will be there. I really want to be there as well.
Wedding #2 is one of my best friend's from college, we met freshman year and have been close ever since. She lives in CT, so I don't see her as often as we'd like, but we talk all the time. She'll be one of my bridesmaids as well.
On Saturday, wedding # 1 is at 2pm with the reception at 6pm. The ceremony is at a church in my hometown and reception is two towns over, just about a 20 minute drive. The ceremony on Sunday for wedding #2 is not until 4:30 and there is not a rehearsal of any kind the night before. We are getting our hair done that morning, 11am-noon, and then photos before the ceremony.
If I went to wedding #1 in NH, Steve and I could get up super early Sunday morning and drive to CT. I can't imagine there being too much traffic at 5 or 6am, so we could still be there early. Or, we could always leave after the reception Saturday night when we are both wide awake. Again, there shouldn't be too much traffic that late!
If you were the bride, and I told you that I was driving down that morning, would you be upset and more stressed? Am I crazy to consider doing both? Am I asking for an ulcer?
