@jennalea15:  If it was my family I’d travel to both no matter how close they were in time. I’m note sure about other people’s opinions or about your parents’ finances though. Have you talked to your parents about how soon after they would be able to financially handle your wedding?

If their wedding is in October 2013, and yours is in May/June 2014, I think that’s plenty of time, and it’s really considerate of you to think of your guests.

Best wishes!

I think 6months is plenty of time apart. They should be able to travel for both

As I understand it, they don’t need to travel for your sister’s wedding. In that case, there is no problem for the guests; they only need to travel once so it can be anytime.

The only issue then is your parents, and that’s hard to judge without knowing your parents, but if they’re like me (with kids’ weddings in the not-too-distant future), there are already some savings and the spacing doesn’t really matter. So I think 6 months is more than enough space, in fact even 2-3 would be fine.

@jennalea15:  Your best bet is to simply ask your parents how much time they expect to need to “recover” from the first wedding. 

And as far as other guests, that’s plenty of time.
