Q: One of my best friends set her wedding date for September 8. How much time should there be between our weddings? We have the same maid of honor and will be in the other’s wedding.
A: There’s really no guideline for determining how far apart friends’ weddings should be, but we’d say if you became engaged after her, it would be best for you to schedule your wedding after hers (and vice versa if she became engaged first) — more out of courtesy than obligation. The two of you can discuss what’s reasonable in terms of time between the events, so the two weddings don’t become a burden to attendants or guests who may be invited to both (especially if travel expenses, hotel accommodations, etc. are involved).
