Congrats!!! Other than telling her the date, I wouldnt share planning details.  So many people here have been upset by “copy cat” weddings.

I would keep in mind how many overlappers would have to travel for both, and have them at least a few weeks apart. I wouldn’t mind another wedding near mine at all, but as a guest I might mind traveling back to back

@MexiPino:  Will your guests in common be traveling to either weddings or other events like showers? It can be really overwhelming to buy a gift for and attend two bridal showers, bachelorettes, and weddings.

@MexiPino:  congrats! 9/13/14 bride here. Make sure you plan your honeymoons accordingly, if it is important that you are at each others big days

@MexiPino:  oh, that should be fine as long as it’s not the same weekend, lol. On another note, congrats! I was a SIUP member, but I left the boards for a bit so I never saw your announcement.

Congrats! Busy season for the family!

And another congrats for accepting that your wedding is one delightful day, not several magical months!

How scattered is your family? If they’re flying several thousand miles I could see a potential issue, but if they’re just driving a couple of hours, they should be fine!

My family will have three weddings between July 12 and September 20, 2014, so I totally feel you. I would just make sure you try to keep to one gifting event per month if possible, especially if the cost of gift giving will be an issue for your family.  We are probably going to have to do my shower the week before my brother’s wedding, since my fiance and I live on the opposite coast and I just can’t afford to fly back a fourth time for just a shower, but given that special circumstance everyone’s been really understanding.
