On Saturday, Kathleen and Dan Fogarty’s daughter Rachel will get married. It is their daughter Kelly’s turn three weeks later. And three weeks after that, their daughter Juliette will get married.

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of bridal showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, altering dresses, making veils, cooking, cleaning, and shopping. It is doable but can be hectic, say the Fogartys, who live in Fort Wayne, Ind.

Long group texts help as does a calendar. So, too, does a big family. With eight children—five girls and three boys in 15 years—there is little time for pettiness and rivalry. They help each other without being asked. “We have this big support system,” says Juliette. “I know I can call any sibling and say ‘Oh my gosh, I need help,’ and they would be at my side.”

Kids Absolutely Belong At Weddings, Don't Fight Me On This

  Kids Absolutely Belong At Weddings, Don't Fight Me On This Whenever wedding season rolls around, the issue of inviting children becomes a hot topic, with tons of opinions rolling around the internet. I've read a good number of both pro and con pieces, including an essay written last year on Refinery29 that convincingly argues against spending the entire ceremony holed up in the church lobby for fear your 1-year-old will become disruptive. And I've still concluded that children are more than welcome at our August wedding, including the tiny, rambunctious flower girl and ring bearer, both barely 3, who will most certainly need parental help getting down the aisle.

One brother is handling reception music. Their youngest sister, Rose, is baking more than 100 cupcakes for Rachel’s wedding and 250 for Kelly’s. Extended family is pitching in as well. A cousin, who is a graphic artist, made the wedding invitations for Juliette, as her wedding present. An aunt threw a shower for all three.

“The weddings will be beautiful and the receptions will be fun. Nothing over the top,” says Mr. Fogarty. His daughters and their fiancés are handling most of the planning and costs and keeping them in line. “It’s been pretty easy for me, at least.”

The Fogartys are a close-knit family, who lived until a few years ago in a small town of Bryan, Ohio, home of Spangler Candy, which makes Dum Dums lollipops. They took vacations, pulling a camper behind them, once retracing Dan and Kathleen’s honeymoon trip 35 years ago from Savannah, Ga., to Williamsburg, Va. Every Sunday, they hosted brunch for family and friends, workers on one side of the kitchen island and talkers on the other.

When their children started graduating from college and going to work in bigger Fort Wayne, across the state line, the Fogarty’s bought a three-bedroom house there for them. The four oldest sisters lived together at times. Rachel and Kelly still do. Over the years, they talked about the guys they were dating. “We talked about getting married and weddings. I don’t think we thought we would get married three weeks apart. It just happened to work out that way,” says Rachel.

It began last fall when all three became engaged within five weeks of each other.

On Oct. 2, Rachel, 29, was on a Sunday morning hike with her boyfriend Brent Bennett in Wisconsin, where his sisters live, when he asked her to marry him. Six days later, Kelly, 33, and her boyfriend Chris Whelan, who lives in Kentucky, met in Columbus and were walking along the river. The only thing that would make the day better, Mr. Whelan said, dropping to his knee, was if Kelly would marry him. Four weeks later, on Nov. 11, in honor of Veterans Day, Juliette, 25, a nurse who lives in the Washington, D.C. area, and her boyfriend Michael Jackson went for a walk along the war memorials. Mr. Jackson said he would honor her and their family-to-be and asked her to marry him. A friend on a hill above captured the moment on camera.

We had beer, wine, and specialty drinks, so everyone had plenty of options. But this pompous asshole - who was on my husband's side of the guest list - brought two bottles to drink himself. I'm sure he thought he was so high class that he had to bring his own fancier wine, but I just wanted to deck him in the face when I realized what was going on." -Abby B.

Rachel picked her wedding date first because she was the first one engaged—the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne, where she belonged, was available May 20.

Kelly and Chris were next. Both are teachers, so they had to wait until June when school was over—June 10 at the same Cathedral.

Juliette, who loves the beach, wanted a summer wedding with a tropical theme. July is her favorite month. They will marry on July 1 at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Ind.

“We were like, Wow this is going to be pretty crazy,” says Rachel of weddings three weeks apart. “But none of us wanted to push it out any longer.”

When the dates were picked, there was an “Oh dear moment,” says Mrs. Fogarty. “I knew we would all pitch in and it wouldn’t be up to me to do all the planning.” When her girls were little and wanted friends over for a party, she would have them make a list, send out invitations, clean and plan what to eat and do. The oldest girls, once they were big enough, took over the chores of laying out clothes and curling the hair of the younger sisters.

Check-in Day: Saturday Location: Between ByPass & Beach Road Town: Kitty Hawk Three Sisters , Three Weddings : May , June , July - WSJ May 16, 2017 On Saturday, Kathleen and Dan Fogartys daughter Rachel will get married.

She was more taken by the thought of three daughters leaving home, virtually at once.

She is cooking some of the food for Juliette’s rehearsal dinner and bringing it to South Bend, menu and location still undecided. Juliette was the only of her sisters to send out save the date notices so no one forgot. “I wanted to make sure everyone knew there was one last one at the end,” she says.

On a recent weekend, Mrs. Fogarty and her five daughters attended a shower for Rachel on Saturday and hosted one for Juliette on Sunday. For Juliette’s shower, one daughter hallowed out a pineapple and filled it with flowers—in line with Juliette’s tropical theme—while another cut strawberries. The others arranged chairs and hung decorations. “My girls are I are machines,” says Kathleen, who was also one of five daughters.

They helped her decide when she bought and tried on three mother-of-the-bride dresses which to wear at each wedding. The long gown, they agreed, went with Kelly’s 6:30 p.m. wedding. The three quarter length sleeve went with Rachel’s May wedding. The lightweight one was best for Juliette’s July wedding. Mrs. Fogarty says she labeled each to make sure she remembered which to wear to what wedding.

The sisters confer with each other, letting each other know what songs they want to play for the dance with their fathers and their entrances, making sure not to pick the same one. All are going to be in each other’s wedding and so too are their sisters Brigette and Rose. Everyone will get a chance at being either a maid or matron of honor.

Rachel and Kelly decided to use the same bridesmaid’s dresses and the same silk bouquets to help keep costs down. Both are using their mother’s vases, too, for centerpieces although with different flowers, and one with pillar LED candles and the other tea lights.

They wondered whether it would be too similar and then decided it didn’t matter because both would be beautiful. “People know we are sisters and have the same taste,” says Rachel. Both she and Kelly picked the same china pattern, Lenox Opal Innocence.

Juliette consults her mother about logistics, seating arrangements, whether to have a DJ or a playlist with a really good sound system. “I call her daily,” she says. “My mom loves us being nearby. We are her friends. We hang out. It will be hard for her when we all get married.”

It is going to be hard for their younger siblings, too. The other day, Kelly was at her parents’ house and decided to leave notes on the bathroom mirrors of her younger brother, Nick, 19, and sister, Rose, 21, who still live at home, asking them to go on a big sister date. “As I was writing those, I got all teared up,” she says. “It’s a big change for all of us.”

The Fogartys say they are happy their daughters have met and are marrying men that they both respect and love. Mr. Fogarty thinks about what it will be like walking each daughter down the aisle. He suspects he will feel a mix of joy and other emotions. “They are such a big part of my life,” he says. He doesn’t plan on writing father of the bride speeches for the reception, but will speak from the heart.
