Well, if it makes you feel any better, I think it’s crazy, too!  I also can’t believe the gall of someone to call “dibs.”  If I were in that situation, I would just go about my planning and hope for the best.  And if I were feeling really controlling about it, I would make sure to book everything I wanted before the other couple!  But since your FI’s friend has changed plans a couple times, it doesn’t seem like he is actually all that controlling, so why is he sweating it… and you?  Totally annoying.  My sympathy!

Wait…what? They are thinking of having a wedding in May, but you can’t have yours in April?? Ridiculous. Ignore them. No one gets “dibs” on a whole season.

There’s no such thing as dibs…especially since they changed their minds. What if they change them again? I’d say just set a date and if they don’t want to be in the same season that’s their prerogative.

One of our friends is getting married 3 weeks before us, and we set our date first.  We didn’t care, though we did feel bad for people that were going to attend both, since theirs was a destination wedding.

At the end of the day, while it’s expensive for guests for that month or two, spreading it out further doesn’t make it any less expensive!

Part of being “a certain age” or of a certain time in life, is that inevitably you’ll have a couple years where every summer is 7 weddings and you have no weekends without one going on! To say “You can’t get married this particular season” is ridiculous. I’m sure your friends will deal with having two weddings a month apart, it’s not unusual. Maybe the overlapping groomsmen could look into buying a decent suit rather than doing two rentals, it could be more cost effective for them. You can just swap out the ties to match each wedding.
