Pulling Off the Double Wedding

Challenges arise as two sisters plan their double wedding

(page 1 of 2)

I ’ve always felt that a double wedding required the highest degree of compromise. When people are willing to give up some of their own ideas and wishes for the “greater good,” such a wedding can be fabulously joyful. Make no mistake; a double wedding is not easy to pull off.

A Hudson Valley Bride asks: “My sister and I have always dreamed of having a double wedding. Now that we’ve each found our soul mates, our dream can become a reality. If I do say so myself, we’ve always been great about compromising, but we hope you can help with a few sticking points. My sister thinks we should mail separate invitations, each doing our own. I think we should save the money and combine them into one, but I don’t know how to do that. We also both want our dad to walk us down the aisle; does he leave one of us and then run back to get the other? Help!”
