    My husband (then fiance) knew that it was important to me to have my father’s blessing but also my brother’s blessing. My brother is a couple of years older than me, and we’re very close. So, my husband took my brother out first to tell him about it (and get some practice before talking to my parents!) and then brought my parents to dinner later that week and asked them there.

    So, no. I don’t think it’s silly when it’s the people who are most important to you.

    I voted for I’m only close to one parent so he only asked mom/dad but wanted to clairfy as the actual scenario was not a choice.  I am extremely close with both of my parents  but my Fiance only asked my Dad as is tradition.  My Dad kept it a secret from my Mom so she would be surprised when I called to give them the good news.  My Fiance wanted me to be able to surprise someone 😛  My Mom screamed on the phone (happy of course) and it was the best reaction ever!  I am so glad my Dad kept the secret from her so I got to hear it 🙂


    As far as your question goes, I think it’s fine to have your SO ask all of your close family members if that is what you want but maybe you would enjoy being able to surprise them with the news if it turns out he didn’t ask your brother.  Silver lining!
