BM planning on proposing during our wedding trip

I llike Amarillis' idea of proposing beforehand. When you get engaged you want to jump up and down and let everyone know -- I know I did! Phone calls, talks of wedding planning, retelling the proposal story a million times to a million people, etc. If he proposed during your wedding weekend, she might feel like she has to hold back on all of that out of respect.
- He proposes a before the wedding, so she has her own "YAY, I am engaged" day to share w/ friends and family
- He surprises her with a bag full of wedding magazines before they get on the plane to make things fun
- He makes the trip extra special by arranging special activities to do together to celebrate during free time (private dinner on the beach, couples massage, etc)
Every couple has a different style but just a thought!

But back to how you should feel about it... I thin you are feeling exactly the right way. A little annoyed, not too bothered, it's still your wedding and it will be perfect!
Oh, and he should also be sure not to infringe on your festivities at all and make sure that he does the proposal not during any of your wedding-related dinners.

I do think it's tacky, ecsp if he does it before you're big day. Guys just don't look at it in that way though.
Maybe you can have someone casually mention to the dude "...maybe you should hold off until the wedding's over.." and bring it up that way. He might honestly just not realize.

a big thing is to me tho, when doug proposed to me on our family vacation, NONE of our friends were with us, and my mom was at home, she didnt come on the trip because she volunteered to watch all our dogs. so i was REALLY sad not to be able to share it with my mom. but maybe this chick wont think of it like that since her whole family isnt there too. prolly.
so ok what i'm now saying is i guess its cool. they cant really wait until the next day since they are leaving, that would kinda suck for them, but as long as its far enough away from your wedding and events its totally separate

if he takes her off somewhere just the two of them a few days before the wedding & proposes, i don't think it will interfer. especially since no one their knows the couple. if it was a sibling it might get tricky.
i've heard of so many people proposing at a wedding reception. I wasn't a bridezilla, but i would have quickly become one if someone did this.

My sister told everyone at my wedding that she was pregnant and I never told her but I was pretty pissed off. Everyone I talked to was like, "Oh congratulations, that was so lovely, and I hear your sister is having another baby! Isnt that exciting??" I just felt like a bit of my day was stolen in a weird way. Thats JMO though!
