When two brothers, two sisters, two friends decide to get married on the same day, we call that a Double Wedding. It’s not as rare as people think it is for two couples to decide to get married on the same day, at the same time and in the same ceremony
There are so many reasons why couples decide to share their wedding day with someone else. Here are a few reasons.
- 2 for 1: With two weddings for the price of one, you can save a lot of money by joining forces on some of the most expensive/big budget items on a standard wedding budget like the venue, catering, etc.
- Double Double: Double Weddings can sometimes mean a bigger wedding, more people to enjoy the day with, a bigger party which can equate to more fun. As the saying goes, the more, the merrier.
- One trip for your wedding guests: With two weddings in one, your guests can focus all their resources on travelling to one event, taking time off work once, etc rather than having to do this twice.
These are just some of the reasons why couples go for a double wedding. We’ll be sharing some pros and cons of double weddings so look out for the post in the next few weeks.
