I don’t know the formal etiquitte, but I wouldn’t change a thing. You are engaged and set you wedding date. Your distant cousin and you could have worked something out if you were both engaged and trying to pick days about the same time, but since you got engaged first, her wanting June too is sort of moot.

I hope that the relative who mentioned this to you wasnt trying to get you change your day or guilt you in any way. If so, THAT would be poor etiquitte.

I think technical etiquette says you get one day to have your wedding, and they could have theirs the next day if they wanted. When my best friends got engaged, all I asked of her was to give me a week to get back from the honeymoon :). Since your family is close, a couple week gap should be fine, especially if no one has to travel for it.

Well, considering that she’s not even engaged yet, I don’t think she should even be considering dates.  You are engaged, your wedding is planned…there’s nothing for you to worry about but going forward with your plans.  You can’t live your life trying to please everyone.

You get a day and there is no etiquette around someone choosing another date around that time.  Her plans may change if and when she  becomes engaged.
