Pantang Larangs of the Chinese Weddings

Now, what do you all think of all the Chinese Pantang Larangs for Weddings

1) You do not attend other people's Weddings 1 month pre and post your own Wedding/Registration of Marraige.
2) You do not attend other people's Weddings 2 weeks pre and post your own Wedding/Registration of Marraige.
3) When you are having a 'griefing period' (Someone passed away in your family) you do not attend other's Wedding or Good events for a 1 year period.

Those are all i heard regarding weddings do's and don'ts, which one to follow?

Do i still invite those people whom i know had someone passed away in their families in the recent months?

Do i still invite those people who i know are having wedding/registration of marraiges within 1 month of my own to my wedding day?

This year is a year for weddings, really tons of my friends are getting married, can i attend their weddings if they are within 2 weeks? 1 month of my own wedding?

ARGHHHH!!!! someone enlighten me please, i'm confused.

My advice is go with the practical. Anyways, in this day and age, people don't really follow. I agree with hor ny ang moh. It is common courtesy to invite your friends. Let them decide whether they want to come or not.
