My Best Friend is getting married:) she dosnt know yet but her soon to be husband has enlisted my help !!!! I’m so excited for her I could squeal…. Anyways he is asking her on christmas so i wanted my christmas gift to her be things that will help her on her wedding journey!!!! I want to give it to her right after her purposal …. any Ideas????
2nd thing my boyfriend has been dropping hints and it may be me being semi-Jealous of my best friend but I think he will be asking soon … I told him to wait till after they get married … or put a ring on finger before christmas… because I dont want to steal her spot light …. would it be wrong to get engaged during their wedding planning????

You could get her a wedding binder that she can use. Or a really nice note book that she can write things in. Or a nice address book prefilled out with as many addresses as you can muster.
Don’t wait for her to get married to get engaged. Weddings can take a year or two to plan. You two should get engaged when you are ready and that is the only concern you should have. There is no real thunder to steal unless you do it on the same day.

I agree with not worrying about her getting married before getting engaged. It’s no big deal. Regarding gifts, a planner is a good idea. Promises to help out with things/diy is an amazing gift, but not something that can be easily giftwrapped.

I totally know how you feel about stealing the spot light. My big sister is getting married in May (I’m her MOH) and my boyfriend has dropped hints that he will propose on or before Christmas. At first I was thinking “Oh no what if this bad since my sister isn’t even married yet”, but I’ve decided to just let him do it when he’s ready. But also that I won’t start planning till after my sisters wedding, since I’m helping her with hers. 🙂
As for the present I agree with a planner, maybe with a note in there telling her you will help her with the planning. 🙂

They should be given maybe a month for engagement bliss, and then their wedding events, other then that you do not need to put your life on hold simply because they are getting married.

You could maybe give her a “coupon book” of things you’ll be willing to help her out with for the wedding. Like throw a shower, bachelorette party, help with DIY, etc. I did this for my cousin and she absolutely loved it! Also, as far as you and your SO getting engaged I would tell him either a month before or a month after and then you can figure out who’s wedding will be when. Good luck!!!

I’d get a box and fill it with wedding magazines, a planner, and cute little wedding knick-knacks. In regards to the engagement, I think I’d prefer to be engaged after their engagement since he had already been planning on it and your bf is barely dropping hints. But there is NOTHING wrong with being engaged at the same time, I think that’ll be fun since it is your bff!
