Keep your competitive nature out of the process
If you and your friend have planned to get married in the same month, you’re likely going to be searching for a venue, dress, baker, florist and more all at the same time. Don’t let it turn into a crazy competition of who can get the best. Instead, do your own thing and if your friend asks for an opinion or for help choosing which dress looks best, be her friend, be happy for her and stay supportive. And just think – you’ll have someone to vent to about crazy in-laws, wedding invitations, dresses and expensive food with.
If you know your best friend is getting married just a few weeks before you, make plans ahead of time. Book the flight and figure out travel dates early so you can save money. The earlier you book it, the better. This way, you won’t be racing to find last minute flights that will drain your wallet. If the wedding is nearby, make sure you still make travel arrangements so you know exactly how you’re going to get there and when. This way, you’ll know that your friend’s wedding won’t interfere with your appointment with your florist.
No girl ever wants to get caught dead wearing the same dress twice. But guess what? Dresses can be a little pricey. Thankfully, there are more ways than one to wear a dress. You can pair it with different jewelry, shoes, hairstyle and makeup to create a completely varied ensemble. Dress an outfit up for a formal affair or dress it down for an upcoming casual wedding celebration. Buy a simple dress, like a little black number, that can easily be changed with accessories or jackets.
