When it comes to weddings, sibling rivalry can often ruin the happy occasion, which is why one pair of sisters decided to share their Big Day to avoid upstaging each other.
Charly Mckevitt, 28, got engaged to her partner Marcin Jerwan, 36, five years ago, and when her younger sister, Ella, announced she was engaged too, they did not want each other’s weddings to overshadow their own.
So when Ella’s fiancé Chase Pretorious, 28, proposed, 23-year-old Ella told the Daily Record: “We started joking about getting married at the same time.”
What started as a joke soon became reality, and the sisters, from Sauchie, Clackmannanshire in Scotland, began to organise their wedding day together.
They even bought their wedding dresses on the same day, shared their first dance, and cut their wedding cake at the same time.
“We got prepared together upstairs and then our dad and step-dad walked us down the aisle,” Ella said.
While many sisters would struggle to share the same vision for their special day, Ella and Charly were able to enjoy their weddings despite their different styles.
Ella even opted for Converse trainers under her lace wedding dress, while Charly went for a more traditional look with a strapless gown and high heels.
After sharing the planning, they tied the knot at Gartmore Village Hall on June 22nd in front of 130 family and friends.
Of course, sharing a wedding would certainly help couples with expenses, as they can split the cost between them. With the average cost of getting married being £32,273, according to Hitched, this could be very tempting for lots of brides and grooms out there.
