How can we prevent this ending up like "Bride Wars" when best friends got engaged a month apart and plan to marry the same summer?

We're best friends. We were absolutely inseparable in high school and even a couple of years after college are still very close. She will be my maid of honor and I will be a bridesmaid (since her sister will be MOH) in her wedding.
We got engaged a month apart, and due to the fact that we are both teachers, both plan to marry in summer 2011.
I am nervous this will turn into a crazy race to find the best date, the best venue, etc.
I am also worried neither of us will be able to feel like it's our own "special day", since dress shopping and everything else will inevitably turn into somewhat looking for ourselves instead of for each other.
How do we make sure this is a fun, exciting, cooperative time and not a jealous, competitive time? I don't want to lose my best friend!
