But when it comes to planning a wedding brides want their weddings to be unique and stand out from the crowd.
When you're planning your wedding you may want to keep a few details secret if you're concerned that your friend getting married the month before may "steal" the idea. I know it sounds crazy but it happens and some brides have meltdowns when they see "their" wedding detail at someone else's wedding.
If this does happen it's not the end of the world. Simply decide if you want to keep the detail in your wedding or if there's a way to tweak it so it's still the same idea but not exactly the same thing (or it's better) or cancel the idea and come up with something else.
No one is really going to remember if you and your friend have similar details at your wedding except you and the recent bride, and possibly her groom.
