Congratulations to your son on his impending marriage.

The second son may certainly get engaged before his brother's wedding date; however, since his brother was engaged first, his brother should be able to marry first if he so chooses. (Son #2 should not announce his engagement and try to squeeze in a marriage before 28 Aug.) Also, any festivities connected with Son #1's wedding should remain about Son #1's wedding and not feature pageants, announcements, or extended conversations about Son #2's impending nuptials.

Of course he can! Just make sure he doesn't announce it at his brother's wedding. That would be rude. But there's no reason why he should put his personal life on hold because his brother's getting married.
