If a lot of guests will have to extensively travel for both weddings (airplane style), you might have people decline one of the weddings.

Otherwise you might be ok. My FI’s brother got married in June, we’re getting married in August and my brother is getting married two months after that! I don’t forsee any problems there, but everyone’s situation mostly required travel for only one of the weddings, so attendance so far hasn’t been an issue.

I see your cause for concern but I also feel like weddings are so special that people would only feel sad if they could only make one and not the other and had to choose. I wouldn’t be annoyed and am actually very excited about the 3 weddings coming up in our family! One in November, December and January! It’s a very happy time 🙂

TheLadyA :  I 100% get this!!! We are getting married on August 2, my fiances brother is getting married July 19. Two weeks apart… we did it with the intent that the grooms grandparents who were supposed to be coming out for the summer didn’t have to make the expensive flight across thr country. Due to circumstances out of our control they are now not able to make it and we are booked 2 weeks apart and carrying on. Unforuntately there are some relatives who can not make both BUT I don’t let that get me down because it all fairness you could wait until next June and for some guest the timing could be wrong, they could not have the vacation time or the finances to travel then either. Have your wedding when you and the groom would like, that way you have no regrets! Good luck!
