There are so many glorious deaths in such a short time...I wonder if they'll stretch the subsequent happenings directly after the Royal Wedding into a few episodes.
My impression was that only a week or two separated the events. There was enough time for the initial report to reach King's Landing, as well as the subsequent gory details (some of which happened the day after). Then there was enough time for Salladhor Saan to witness the Lannister troops celebrating in King's Landing and then for him to sail to Dragonstone to give a report to Stannis.
But the TV series could easily change that, just as it's altered many other timelines.
