As long as it’s after I hers I can’t imagine she’ll be upset.

troddenprawn:  I was about to say, “Give at least 2-3 months for the sake of travelling relatives”. But since there are “hardly any” travelling, you’re probably ok. FI should probably check with the ones who need to travel to both. But if there are no travelling issues, I’d say 6 weeks is fine. I also don’t see a problem with pushing it into early or mid December.

Depending on your relationship with her, it might be better if your FI asks her – she’s his sister.

So long as there aren’t lots of guests who would be traveling long distances to both, I think you’re fine! My sister got married 6 weeks before me and it wasn’t a problem, at all! Our only overlapping guests were local, so it didn’t put anybody out and I’ve never really bought into this whole concept of not wanting to “share the spotlight”.
