Three Simultaneous Engagements

Honestly, none. There's no need to let your friends dictate the details of your wedding. Still, if it turns out you all want to marry around the same time, it would be wise to discuss the impact on those involved. Will your guest lists overlap? Will some invitees feel overwhelmed by three showers and weddings almost at once? Will anybody be forced to choose which wedding to attend? If there are significant problems, you may decide it makes sense to space the celebrations. But once you've made a sincere effort to accommodate your friends' wishes, you needn't feel guilty about going ahead with your plans.
