@forrestbride:  I once had friends have 4 weddings on 4 successive weekends during Aussie “wedding season”. 3 weddings in 2 months is nothing. I wouldn’t worry about it.

Generally the relatives are the most important guests, and they won’t be going to your friends’ weddings. As for the interstate friends: there can’t be that many of them. If a couple of people have to miss your wedding, then so be it. You can’t postpone your wedding by a year just because of that.

Keep your date, especially since you have an important international guest who’s relying on it.

We were invited to 4 weddings in 5 weeks this year, and we made it to all but one, which was the same weekend as another wedding FI was a groomsman in! Don’t worry–people know weddings are special and will try to make it if they possibly can!

As a fellow Aussie I would hate to get married during Dec-Feb. That sounds horrid! Although, perhaps your in Melbourne or somewhere they isn’t quite as hot as good old Queensland.

I’d just be happy for my friends.  I was the first to get engaged and everyone was so excited to have their first friend married.  However, since then a bunch of friends have gotten engaged and will beat me to the alter!  I’m really happy for them and am looking forward to their weddings- and they are looking forward to mine.  We are all having very different weddings, so they shouldn’t take away from each others.  The people who are closest to you will try to make it and there will always be people who can’t make it no matter when you schedule your wedding to be!

My brother, my sister, and I all got married within 6 weeks of eachother and we didn’t have any problems at all. Keep your date and try to avoid any drama:)
