caroline.fitzgerald.334:  CONGRATS TO YOUR SISTER!!!!!!!

you sound like a brat “i can’t find it in me in me to be happy for her” <—wow really??? 

if my sister had gotten engaged i would actually be thrilled and it would be more of a reason to celebrate at my wedding, bc its another wedding to look forward to

I got engaged about two weeks before my sisters wedding too. I was a little worried about stealing any of her thunder, but she assured me that she was absolutely thrilled for us and the more celebration the better. Our friends and family oohed and ahhed and congratulated us for about 10 seconds each and then the focus was all on my sisters wedding, of course. You need to just chill out and be happy for her. Unless she has a long history of trying to steal the spotlight from you, you are totally over reacting.

You are getting married, and your sister is recently engaged. Can’t you be happy for her like she hopefully was for you? It’s an exciting time! Thnk of all the wisdom you can pass down. I don’t think your wedding will be her engagement party unless you and your Fiance have the exact same guest list that she and her Fiance would have. They will be there at the wedding to celebrate you, not her.

Go congratulate your sister! Immediately!!! Her enagagement has nothing to do with your wedding. There’s enough joy and excitement to go around. Don’t worry about it.

My guess is its more of a sibling rivalry thing. Some sisters get older and become best friends. others compete with each other all throughout life. Probably if it has been anyone else who just got engaged, OP wouldnt be so upset. Your sister got engaged be happy for her (and by the way, you were still the first).

life doesn’t stop for others when you’re engaged and about to be married. contrary to popular belief, apparently.

It’s not her engagement party, it’s your wedding.  You’ll be the one in the white dress.  Don’t worry, you’ll still be the center of attention.  So suck it up and be happy for your sister, like I’m sure she was for you when you got engaged.

People get engaged all the time – that is life.  If your sister has supported you throughout your engagement, you should support her. Be happy for her – after all, you’re about to have the most amazing day of your life in 22 days. The only person that can take that away from you is you.  So enjoy your time leading up to your wedding and don’t obsess about your sister getting engaged. Yes, that is a big deal for her, but I’m sure she realizes your wedding is a really big deal too.

Nope, no real reasons why you should feel upset, but I guess controlling internal emotions can be hard. Focus on being happy for her, there’s 22 more days until your wedding.. That’s plenty of separation of the two events.
