    I’m bummed about that. I think that’s shady that someone would actually have the nerve to do that at their sister’s wedding! So sad for the bride and groom! Maybe when the sister gets married, the former bride and groom should make a big announcement that they’re pregnant or something! :]

    My sister called my Mother-In-Law a fairly terrible name and threw a drink on our mother (as my mother was trying to diffuse the situation). I don’t think I would have minded a proposal. In fact, I would have preferred it.

      In all seriousness though- I don’t understand why people do this. You’re at a party for someone else be a good guest and enjoy yourself. Perhaps your friend’s fiance should stop their reception to announce they are pregnant or something 🙂

    One word comes to mind…RUDE. I can’t understand what made him think that it was ok to propose at someone else’s wedding.

    I wouldn’t begrudge the new bride-to-be a proposal at the wedding. That is fine but to do it before the first dance and to announce it like the wat it was done? That is pretty rude and the sister LEFT two hours later to get her wedding things set up is not only rude but  very much bridezilla-ish

    I was cringing the whole time I read your post. What they did was truly inconsiderate. I wouldnt mind an engagement at my wedding so much if it was done in better taste, but either way I think it is rude. And then to leave early. WTF???? I would be so mad.

    I can’t believe how awful your friends sister is. Not only to steal her wedding day from her but then to steal her 1st anniversary as well. Its like she is totally disregarding your friends marriage. If I were your friend I wouldn’t go to the wedding and I would plan a really nice getaway for my anniversary. Easier said than done though… If she does go to the wedding her husband should take the mic, give a really sweet toast to your friend about their first year of marriage, have the DJ play a song for them to dance to and then leave early because they are just so excited to get home and celebrate.

    Ugh – talk about fuel to the fire! More and more I’m thinking this girl must be jealous of her sister. Or she’s just supremely selfish. Probably both.

    Maybe this is mean, but I hope she joins weddingbee and comes across this thread. Maybe it will straighten her out to see honest objective opinions about what she did and is planning to do.

    I think I will write my sister a note thanking her for being so awesome and not doing these sorts of things to me…

    I think this is horrible.  TRULY.  Maybe I am selfish but get your own day, seriously.  I guess this is one of my hard limits.

    WOAH! It wouldn’t bother me that a couple got engaged – I would even make some kind of little announcement – that’s fine. BUT to have a dance, have everyone instantly change the focus from the bride to the sister and then to LEAVE the wedding 2 HOURS early??? That’s insane.

    I wonder what their parents think.

    Seriously, I’ve already posted, but announcing a pregnancy on May 29th 2011 sounds like the appropriate thing to do! Even if she’s not preggo 😉
