Copycat friend...real life bride wars?
So my fiancee's best friend/groomsmen just got engaged (about 3 months after we got engaged) to his girlfriend of less than a year. The couple are really good friends of ours, so we were extremely excited. A couple of weeks ago we went camping and started talking about wedding planning. They were thinking a fall barn or country estate wedding in 2016 upstate, which we said sounded amazing. We let them know about where we had decided on for our reception venue, a penthouse suite with huge terrace and views of the Vegas city skyline. They commented on how different it was and how excited they were. Well fast forward to yesterday when my fiancee tells me they have set a date to October 2015. Naturally I worried a bit since our wedding is July 2015 ( 3 months before their date) , we will have a lot of the same guests, my fiancee is a groomsmen in their wedding as well, but I figured we would make it work. I texted the bride congratulations on setting the date and asked where it would be, she let me know she had moved it to the city of the state they live in and are having it at a penthouse suite with a terrace that has a view of the city skyline. I was floored. Trying not to overreact I told her it sounded awesome and how we were wedding twinsies almost but I couldn't help feeling a little hurt. My fiancee has assured me our wedding will be completely different. We have fewer guests and it's in Vegas and ours is first. I can't help but think that there budget is 5x ours, will have more people, and same guests. And since its so close to ours, people will be comparing the two weddings, and thinking they did it better. Am I being a crazy bridezilla or did they copy us?
