There is no etiquette saying that she gets an entire month to herself.  3 weeks is enough time between weddings, especially if they are both local.

I have never heard of this at all. I read your other post. It’s obvious she has other reasons for not wanting you to have that date and she is just trying to shame you into changing it. DON’T! It is your fall wedding. Boo on her!

I have never heard anything like this. You get a wedding Day. Not a wedding Month.

Wow. I can’t believe she thought your party was the right time to approach this! Looks like she needs a lesson in manners. I have never heard of this “rule”. 3 weeks is plenty of time after.

I have NEVER heard of this. I’ve had friends get married 5 days after another one! I think she wants the wedding spotlight to be on her for as long as possible but you are in no way being rude for having your wedding 3 weeks later.

NEVER…. I think she is making up rules and including the 6 weeks from the time limit for invitations. 🙂

She gets the day of only.  Not the entire week, month etc.

 

She is making up rules.

She totally pulled that one out of you-know-where. I have a friend getting married a little less than a month after me, and the date has never bothered me. I would just ignore her as best you can–she seems like a real drama queen.

haha…reminds me of my cousin’s girlfriend who decided our engagement party would be a good time to have an emotional breakdown and tell the family – she just wants everyone to stop talking about weddings and marriage and wedding planning…(she was recently divorced—i do think that sucks, but at our e-party, really!?). 

same thing for your situation. just because your date is not long after hers doesn’t give her the right to cause drama at the e-party! regardless, as far as i know, there is no etiquette that states 6 weeks is the rule of thumb. (does she not realize that her wedding only lasts a day anyway??).
