Yeah, it’s unfortunate that your happiness is coming at the sake of someone else’s. Glad you got what you wanted, I guess?

How are they not engaged if they have a wedding date set? Sounds like a perfectly valid use of the word “engaged” to me…

@MrsWinTraining2014:  Planning a wedding = Engaged. You don’t have to have a proposal to be engaged.

@KateByDesign:  + 1. Engaged means ”engaged to get married”. They are planning and they have the date set for their wedding day, they cannot be more engaged than that.

Is this thread a joke ? I can hardly believe someone would brag multiple times about having a Maid/Matron of Honor ”all for herself”. I’m confused.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  This is so strange, congrats I guess? I pretty much always check out when the term “stolen thunder” is used. My suggestion is to not make it a race or popularity contest between you, your sister and the SIL. You’ll be much happier in life, and at least much more tolerable to the rest of the family!!

I’m so confused, so many bee’s tell waiting bee’s to not plan anything unless there is at least some form of MUTUAL timing plan. The OP stated that the girlfriend just started planning a wedding without any input from her byofriend (OP’s brother). Now I know that if a bee posted something like that in the waiting forum (which has actually happened) every poster would be wondering why she’s even planning in the first place. So how is OP’s situation any different? 

They are not planning, OP’s brothers girlfriend is. But whatever, congrats OP and I don’t think you’re being selfish at all!

If you don’t even know the brother’s girlfriend then how could they possibly be stealing your spotlight? Also, if they are planning a wedding, they are obviously engaged.

Anyway, congrats on having your Maid/Matron of Honor all to yourself.
