    If they are going to be flying not just driving I would think to have them at least 6 months apart.  4 months is pushing it.  Plane tickets are expensive these days!

    Speaking as someone who has had to attend multiple Out of Town weddings within a summer, it was financially draining. I think it is not only a money strain, but most jobs aren’t going to let you ask off twice in three months for a wedding. I think six months is enough time, but y’all will have to sort it out so you’re both happy. You may just have to choose date vs. guests. 


    ETA: I was flying/driving/bussing from Chicago to MS/TN

    Can’t you have your wedding in 2013 then? Maybe fall 2013? You’d still have plenty of time.

    My two cousins who were siblings were married in the same year and unfortunately I had to pick one wedding to attend. It’s not just financial- getting time off of work is hard too!

    In the case of relatives who have a lot of Out of Town guest overlap, I think 4-6 weeks in between is the minimum reasonable length of time.

    I would put a year between them, but that’s just me. We chose to make our wedding date a year after FIs brothers wedding because we have a lot of Out of Town family that don’t have a lot of money and definitely need that year to save up. I think it depends on your guests work (time off) an financial situations.

    Personally, I think may 25th to June 7th is too close, personally I wouldn’t like to get married that close to my sister…and if I had to fly to get to the weddings they def need to be further apart or risk some relatives not being there

    May 25th to June 7th isn’t even 2 weeks! That is WAY to close, and would be unfair to make your family choose like that. Honestly I think 6 months to a year between them would be best if you have a lot of Out of Town family.

    If you weren’t having a lot of Out of Town guests, I’d say it’s fine and do them whenever the heck you want. But the Out of Town guest problem complicates things for sure. Can you do May 25 next year instead?

    If I were in your shoes I’d actually suggest to my sister that we have our weddings on the same weekend, personally we are not close enough to share a day but it would be pretty cool to have a whole weekend of weddingness
