Hi bees 🙂
Now me and my SOare going to be getting engaged soon, he already has the ring and I think it will happen on our anniversary in August. The issue is my sister is getting married at the end of September (she is having a DW just her and her SO) and I am worried that it is the wrong thing to do to get engaged before she gets married? Am I over-thinking it or is it right to be worried about upsetting her? It is the first wedding for us both, and I don’t want to let my excitement about getting engaged impact on my judgement regarding my sister. Argh! Decisions! The flip side is a little part of me thinks that if we wait until after her wedding it may look like we have just got engaged because of that? I just can’t think straight! Help please ladies 🙂 xx

Just because your sister is getting married doesnt mean you cant get engaged….
If my sister got engaged a month before my wedding I would be happy for her! You do not need to put off your engagement because of her wedding!

This same situation happened to me, but I was in the sister’s recieving end. FI and I got engaged November 19 and my sister got engaged December 31 AND planned her wedding three months before mine. I have to admit, I was a bit upset. But a lot of that stemmed from a shaky relationship to begin with. I just wanted everything to be like how I envisioned it…which we all know nothing ever goes 100% according to plan. I personally feel that if you and your sister have a good relationship, maybe you should bring it up to her and ask. If she seems/acts a bit uneasy, maybe you should wait a bit?

As long as you don’t get married ON your wedding day (which I’m sure you wouldn’t), it’s fine 🙂

Enjoy! Do what is right for you, not for your sister.
