While I was in South Africa last month my FI bought me a diamond. I was soooo excited!! We put it in a plain silver setting so I could wear it, and when we got back to the states we went shopping for my setting. I found the PERFECT one, and he bought it for me! The only “problem” is, that I have to wait a month for my ring to be made! Itll be well worth the wait though…
Heres the annoying part..
My cousin just got engaged 2 weeks or so after me, and it bugs me every time shes around because her mom always points out her daughters ring to <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>everyone! (Even to people that have already seen the ring) Sometimes I feel like she does it because she knows I dont have mine yet and she wants to make my cousins FI look better than mine!? Ive talked to my mom about this and she says to just ignore them, but honestly.. im annoyed. Not to mention, im getting married at the end of December.. and ALL OF A SUDDEN my cousin is getting married at the beginning of December!? They dont even know WHERE they are getting married.. im talking about the COUNTRY! Before they got engaged my cousin told me she would want to wait atleast a year to get married, but now shes waiting 5 months?? THATS ANNOYING!
Oh, one more thing.. me and my FI hosted a dinner for our families a week after we returned from South Africa. It was an “engagement dinner”.. to celebrate! At the end of dinner, my cousin and her FI say “WE ARE GETTING MARRIED TOO!” ..ummm ok? this was OUR dinner to celebrate OUR engagement.. way to steal the thunder!
Ok, now im ranting on and on.. im glad I have somewhere to vent 🙂

LOL, I have to admit that while reading your post, I was thinking what Socal Bride said . If it’s any consolation think about it this way, since their wedding is first you have the chance to change things at your wedding for the better if you notice stuff you did not like about theirs.

I don’t think you have anything to worried about. I think people will assume SHE’S pregnant and it’s a shotgun wedding.

Yeah the dinner thing was like way out of line in my opinion. Wow.
But man what’s up with the copy cat cousins on this board?? lol thank god my cousins are either little, or already married haha
They’re showing off in my opinion. And apparently the apple didn’t fall far from the tree if her moms apart of it. And I’m going to assume your mom knows this since she didn’t disagree with you but just said to ignore it.
Shows off need an audience. So ignore them.

Five months and they don’t even know what country they want to have it in? I doubt you have much to worry about…do they expect their guests to be able to fly out of country for a wedding on relatively short notice right before the holidays?
I find it really rude that they felt the need to announce their engagement at YOUR party!
I wouldn’t worry about the ring show! It makes them sound a bit materialistic and self absorbed.

yeah I would just announce it and then like the next day be like O sorry it was a false test, but since ur wedding is after hers she could do something too… I say make your wedding better than hers… like BY FAR!

Plan your wedding to be the happiest day of your life. Dont’ let her steal your thunder! She’ll look like an idiot when people realize that she’s following your every move!

Oh I thought of this last night…
Don’t give her any information about your wedding that you don’t absolutely have too.
Because given the recent events I wouldn’t want to give her the chance to copy those too and then rush to do it before you.
Lie if you have too….if she asks what colors you’re doing maybe keep it on the same side of the spectrum but not the flat out truth.
Like if you’re doing blue say purple, if you’re doing red say orange. etc.
Or just don’t tell her at all and say it’s going to be a surprise. Oh that’ll piss her off even more hahaha!! Then she can’t copy you if she doesn’t know. 🙂 🙂

If they still have not picked a location with about 4 months to go, and they plan on getting married at somewhere nice- good luck! They sound like people that will want to put on a big production, and that cannot be done on short notice. The beginning of December is also a time when many places get booked for holiday events. You have nothing to worry about.

agree with people who said don’t share ANY plans with her…so she can’t steal them!!
