@UpstateCait:THis is very true. Having two weddings in the family within a month will really affect the attendance of out of twon guests. Push yours back if you can.

Talk to your sister before making any deposits on anything.

I don’t think it matters at all.  Yes some guests may not be able to make it to both, but I don’t think that is a bad thing at all.  People may not be able to make it to one, or either for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with the closeness of the affairs.

Two of my best friends and are are getting married very close together, with many people being invited to all 3 weddings.  It has actually been very nice having each other to plan with.  We even tried to swing some deals with vendors by getting them to book all 3 dates.

@lavender rose:

I’m not sure why PP says I don’t care?? 

I’m sorry, I see I could have been more clear! I meant from your sister’s perspective, it probably feels like she told you her concerns and you didn’t care. (I think I had that in there and revised it out on an edit. Stupid text based communication! 🙂

In the grand scheme of things, is it really worth losing your sister over? Why the rush?

wait it out a bit longer. if you are apart of her bridal party then you made a committment. I find it quite impossible to be in a bridal party and planning your own wedding at the same time. Someone will suffer, either your attention to her needs will be limited or you won’t have the time to plan your own properly.
