noms…cake:  They need to get over it. Cousin usually means that half your family is entirely unrelated plus you have separate sets of friends and  your Fiance is completely unrelated. It is not all about them.

And this is why I avoid Facebook for personal,things. I swear everyone acts like they are in junior high on fb. Your family is being absurd and childish. 

IGNORE THEM. put them in a mental timeout like you would a child. Ugh.

Don’t apologize – don’t do anything. It would absurd if they got upset but he’s getting married in several weeks. Please do not feel like you have to be respectful of their insane feelings to the point of hiding your excitement over your engagement. That’s absurd.

bklynbridetobe:  Yep,  crazy. I bet they think they ‘ own’  certain baby names too . ” But you can’t call your baby  Joseph, I’ve always always planned to call my son  (if I have one)  Joseph ….!”

Lol are you serious.. You can’t even announce your engagement without people being upset because he’s getting married in a few weeks..? Its an announcement! How does that steal thunder! Lol. They are being ridicccculous, do not apologize over this. You should never have to apologize for announcing something important in your life.

noms…cake:  most people dont get to pick when they get engaged (mine was a surprise) I mean I knew it was comin some day not the day it happened…. was your Fiance supposed to check with your entire family to see if it was a good time to propose??? 

Their wedding is in a couple weeks not days or hours…….you did nothing wrong.

What does you getting engaged have to do with your cousin getting married in a few weeks? That makes absolutly no sense at all.

As a PP said, I get bothered by stupid crap like this and even I wouldn’t be upset. It’s nothing to apologize for. Congrats!

P.S. – wow, I would avoid that reception like the plague. Eat, drink a little, then peace out.

noms…cake:  What nonsense it all is . I was sort of joking  about baby names too! I   hope  you don’t entertain for a second the notion that  you are not ‘allowed ‘ certain baby names !

Actually, they’ll  probably choose insane kreatyvlee spelld ones so you ‘ll be safe anyway .

And yes, out of that reception the very instant the danger signs  show , grab your bag and  your man  and  be off. Feign death if necessary.
