    OMG, this was a somewhat fear of mine, and i am an anti drama queen too, but SRSLY??!?  no.  haha.

    reminds me of the scene from ‘license to wed’ when the proposal takes place at her parents’ anniversary celebration.

    That’s really annoying. You’d think he’d want to pick an appropriate time for that.

    I hope that she explained to him why this would have been a really bad idea.

    I would have tried to smile and make the most of it….but I would have had some private words with him later. Although being a guy he probably figured that all of the family would be together then so why not? LOL

    The rehearsal dinner is a party thrown in the couple’s honor; he shouldn’t make it about him! I’d be like crebre80 if they got engaged a little before and wanted to make a bigger announcement there, but what a scene-stealer, otherwise!

    @jmc: really? lol perhaps so.. but i’d love for that to happen at my wedding, i’d already be sad that mine was done and the planning was over and then if someone else got engaged i’d be like EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I GET TO DO THIS AGAIN!! lol perhaps that’s why i do what i do?? i am a diva, but not about things like that… now i get pissy with size-st people… i promise size 16s do look awesome in a mermaid/trumpet style dress and i think it’s very size-st for people to say oh no they shouldn’t wear this blah blah blah (but that’s another subject for another post)…..

    Yeah….no. I guess it really would depend on my relationship with the couple getting engaged. But honestly, I’d be pissed either way. Maybe I’m just old school, but I’m not one for scene stealing. Do it a week before or a week after. Or even a DAY before/after. Just give me and my Fiance this ONE event to have for *us*. I would give my family/friends the same courtesy,

    I wish there was an option to say “I wouldn’t have really cared… at  least not in a negative way.”

    I would just be happy for them

    When will men ever learn?  It isn’t exactly a fun story for the girl either.  “Where did he propose?” … “Oh yeah at his cousin’s rehearsal dinner.”  Just doesn’t sound right.
