I think that should be fine.  Just be sure you explain that to the October couple so they dont think youre trying to beat them to the punch or anything – family and work circumstances are limiting, you know?  Fiance and I set our date and told everyone, and friends of ours (who were engaged a month before us, but delayed on setting a date) set the date for 1 week before ours.  Both of had certain circumstances – ours was the only day availabla in 2009 for our venue, and theirs was the only day available for the church.  We weren’t upset, we were thrilled!

I agree with KellyV.  August should be fine.  Although it’s a little close to the other dates, I’m sure your family and friends will understand and will be more than happy to celebrate on all three occassions, it sounds as if they are all close.  Congratulations!

I would ask the bride if it’s OK with her (and explain your reasoning). Mr. MJ has two cousins who are engaged – one whose wedding is at the end of (this) august, and another who was engaged before us and was toying with october back when we got engaged. I asked both women if I’d be stepping on any toes with our wedding. If we were having a big wedding (inviting the families/etc), we would definitely have not done it in early september because I’d hate to exhaust the families and steal the thunder of these other couples. They were both fine with our plans and flattered that I asked!

Like the others said, I’d just ask the other two brides and explain the boyfriend’s daughters involvement as your reasoning.  I think anyone close to you and the other family would understand.
