You definitely should not feel bad! It sounds like it was just an unfortunate chain of events. I’m sure your friend getting married on 7/8 will understand.

I don’t think this is awful, but I would just explain the situation to them as a courtesy…

I agree, I wouldn’t worry.  Your weddings don’t overlap very much so it’s not like you’re trying to make people choose between you.  It may be considerate to call/Skype your friend and let him know before you officially announce it.

No, I don’t think it’s a big deal. I would explain the basics to your friend, if he’s the same culture I’m sure he’ll understand the complication of it being scheduled but not telling people until it was “formalized”. Not the ideal situation, but I can’t imagine him being offended if you explain what happened.

I wouldn’t worry since the guests wouldn’t overlap! It was just a coincidence. Just explain that to your friends =) What can you do about it now? I think it’d be extreme to change your date and deposit on the venue because of another wedding overseas!

it is unfortunate, but nothing you can really do about it. i’d just explain, and if they don’t understand, you enjoy your wedding with the guests who are there and send him and his bride well-wishes. congrats on the engagement!
