Hi bees 🙂
Now me and my SOare going to be getting engaged soon, he already has the ring and I think it will happen on our anniversary in August. The issue is my sister is getting married at the end of September (she is having a DW just her and her SO) and I am worried that it is the wrong thing to do to get engaged before she gets married? Am I over-thinking it or is it right to be worried about upsetting her? It is the first wedding for us both, and I don’t want to let my excitement about getting engaged impact on my judgement regarding my sister. Argh! Decisions! The flip side is a little part of me thinks that if we wait until after her wedding it may look like we have just got engaged because of that? I just can’t think straight! Help please ladies 🙂 xx

I really don’t think it matters… If you are ready to get engaged then do it!

if it’s planned for your anniversary, do it. Don’t wait. Your special moment too.

My sister and I got engaged on the SAME day, and she set her wedding for one month before mine, so I see absolutely no problem with you getting engaged the month before you sister’s wedding. If you’re worried about letting your excitement ruin her time, just make extra certain that you still give her “bride” time, and make sure not to babble on and on about your engagement/wedding when you’re doing things for her wedding.
Your sister doesn’t need the month leading up to her wedding to “shine”, and by the time her wedding rolls around your engagement will be “old news” compared to the wedding that is happening right then. Don’t worry about it!
