I am at the age now where everyone in my circle of friends is getting engaged/married. If everyone waited x amount of time before/after someone else’s event, there would be a lot of 3 year engagements!

 

you have to do what is right for you and if your friend is a true friend she should understand.

 

You also said that only 10 or so people will overlap so it’s not a huge deal I say go for it.

@FutureMrsT1221:  Congrats on the engagement!

I definitely agree with Pink Asawa that there will be no problem with that. Maybe if it was the same weekend or the same day it would be one thing but two weeks?!

Honestly, if they are annoyed by having your engagement party two weeks before their own festivities they aren’t very great friends to begin with. Sounds like they waited a while to have their party (for whatever reason) and you guys are jumping on yours because the date is closer.

If they mention it just explain about wanting the weather to be nice etc. I cannot fathom a logical person being annoyed 🙂

You are over thinking it.  This is completely fine.

@FutureMrsT1221: The engagement party isn’t the main event, the wedding is. In my opinion it’s fine even if they’re a day apart. 2 weeks is plenty.

p.s. Even for the wedding, for friends (as opposed to relatives)  a week apart is fine. In fact I’ve seen it done a few times.
