If it doesn't worry the cousin planning the 2nd wedding, then I don't see why it should worry the first.
I would have said, it would be been courtesy to ask if it's ok, but TBH if bride#1 is already being a bridezilla, then I probably wouldn't ask either.
This is i think the real 'issue' is the fact the cousin did ask my friend if it was alright to plan the wedding for that date, 3 weeks later to her's (so IMO the cousin most likly thinks it is a wrong thing to do and wanted my friends blessing for it so if people do go 'oh 2 wedding withn a month' she can say well my cousin doesn't care why should you!) my friend is a really nice girl and i have never seen her so upset about it. She wanted to get married sooner but thought of a another cousin (they have) so planned her wedding 4 months after hers.
now my friend has her cousins MOTHER CRYING and calling her up about it as SHE isn't too happy with her responce of her daughter wanting her wedding then (as the cousin did ask her her views of it, why ask if your going to do it anyways?) i guess they didn't expect her to say that as she is a happy easy going girl. and now the aunty is telling my friend to move her date later as her daughter cannot wait that long to get married, (why is she in a hurry to get married i personally wonder.... she just turned 19, my friend is 26 and been going out with her BF for 5 yrs not 6months! (my friend's cousins family IS abit crazy IMO at there other sibing's engagement the guests were expected to bring a plate, only give money as a gift and if you give a present you must have a receipt with it so they can change it if they dont like it!!- she showed me the invitation!!) now that is definally crazy! and super rude!!! in the end of augement my friend told her whats her hurry and do it b4 hers!!

I don't think she is being a drama queen. I personally couldn't do it to our families or them, as I think it would be rude, expensive for te guests, and stealing of the thunder (as we would have been beforehand) our next month was also our (march 2012) due to a sibling of one of us being due in the middle of the month. We ended up with a wedding in dec 2011.
THANKYOU!!!!!! for agreeing!!
Italian weddings are expensive and I would never think of putting the wedding 3 weeks aftert cousins or 3 weeks before. (I did however jump the gun in my friends by 10 days earlier friends personally tend to be different because being a big Italian wedding probably half the guests will be invited to both.)
Definally a friend's wedding is a different story as they dont have the same relatives,but when it basically the same people coming for the wedding i still think its a no no.
