There’s no rule; if they’re good people they won’t care. A month is plenty of time for them all to be in the spotlight.

Agreed! Three of my sisters (one natural, two step who are on the same side) got engaged within 6 weeks of each other. It was like engagement dominos! Haha
I feel like you guys can be engaged at the same time, just time yours at least one month later and then I suppose let her head down the aisle first. 
I am having trouble with this myself because (as you know haha) I am hoping to get engaged early next year and my boyfriend and I are hoping to have a wedding in Fall 2017, but I have two step sisters who have been engaged for almost 2 years with no wedding plans in sight, PLUS my step brother is overdue to pop the question to his girlfriend so I am sure he will beat us to it. My sister got married last month, but I feel like I am being forced to the back of a very slow moving queue! My boyfriend says we shouldn’t worry what they do but I don’t want my family to have to deal with a bunch of weddings all at once! Frustration central.

I would say not the same day or weekend. Give it a week or two, and maybe send her flowers or something to recognize her engagement. Congrats!
