Big, big like. I bonded with my sister over my wedding too <3 I’m sure I could have been over the moon with happiness for my other two sisters if they had gotten engaged during my engagement. I agree with the overall sentiment you expressed in your post.

Congrats to both of you!  Also, good luck! I am sincere about that!

And I hate to be a debbie-downer but, also make sure you both sit down with your parents to talk about finances.  If they plan on helping you both out, both of you will need to be okay if the dates are far away or someone has to wait longer, etc.  Don’t need to stress out your parents!


Okay – back to being excited! You guys can do each other’s bachelorette parties! Or, if you really want, a double wedding! You may not be twins but I always liked the idea of double weddings – it’s cute and well, cuts costs for the siblings/parents/guests! lol!

Keep us updated on it! 😀

I wish I had the opportunity to bond with my sister like this. Our weddings were not close together, but our weddings seemed to make the rift that much bigger. Her husband is a complete JERK to both myself and my new husband, so needless to say…we still don’t get along. I am really happy that you can see both angles. She is young, and it is a bit quick, but I am also pleased that she is going to wait until after your wedding to get married. And hey, she can use your wedding as a learning experience and figure out her likes/dislikes faster. I hope both weddings are perfect though 🙂

@CaptainKH:  I LOVE this post!

I’m 22, engaged after a little over 4 months of dating, and have been dealing with a lot of questions, concerns, and criticisms from a variety of people. But thank God that Fiance and I both have supportive families who just want us to be happy. And when they see it in our faces, and hear how happy we are when we talk about each other, they don’t question it.

We did just drop a bomb on them, though: we might be having a courthouse wedding soon because he’s in the military and getting ready to leave for Germany, and I plan on joining him after the wedding celebration I’ve been planning for next year. This caused some concern, but ultimately our parents are going to support us and be happy for us, cuz it’s our decision.

My older sister isn’t even dating anyone at the moment, but she’s being so supportive. Thanks for allowing me a possible peek into her brain with this post lol

I also don’t understand when people are upset someone else (sister, friend, whatever) got engaged soon after them or set a date near their own (unless it’s like the next or same weekend or something). Let’s all just be happy for each other and have fun!
