Friends engagement- am I overreacting?

Recommended Posts

Not overreacting, you're just oversensitive because you're a btb. Totally understandable hug2.gif

 

A proposal ideally shoudn't be something anyone can overthink. She's kind of ruining it for herself by 'demanding' that it happen a certain time and place. But that's not your problem.

 

Hopefully it'll be great for them. They'll have a great vacation, get engaged and attend your wedding. Worst case for them is that no one will really pay that much attention to their engagement because the wedding is the focal point :)

No matter what happens- everyone there will be there for your wedding. Think of it this way- You are having your wedding in such a great location she wants to share it with you. If you were having it in your hometown, she probably would not be so excited- take it as a compliment.

Who says she's going to get engaged then anyway? Most guys dont like to be told when they're going to propose, so I'd be surprised if it even happened.

omg if i had told h2b i wanted to get engaged and when and where....he would have told me where to go! i don't imagine he would have stuck around for very long at all!

 

no matter who gets engaged on your holiday....everyone is there for YOU!

 

i'm the kind of person who hates attention....so i wouldn't personally mind if someone got engaged during our wedding week - but i do see where your coming from.

I'm torn on this one! We have close friends coming to our wedding who have been dating for 5 years - we're pushing him to propose on our trip because everyone will be there and it would be amazing to celebrate with them.

 

BUT a few months ago, on the morning of my future sister in law's wedding, my FI's cousin proposed to his girlfriend. It was terrible - he told everyone the night before that he was getting engaged and the whole morning of the wedding he kept making references to it. He made it about him and it was so grating because of the way he handled it - he even proposed after many family members begged him not to, and the bride even asked that he not do it.

 

The newly engaged girl felt so awkward and terrible because she was at someone else's wedding .

 

Anyway, the moral to my story is this - even if you tell them not to there is no guarantee that they will not get engaged (you just have to hope that it won't interfere with your celebration).

 

And if they do get engaged, it's all about how they handle it. If they are low key about it it will be a quick thing, but if they are annoying about it you can bet everyone will be annoyed as well.....

I'm worried about the same thing -- that my FBIL will propose to his gf at our wedding. It's so irritating because it's family and not friends and ofcourse, it'll be made a big deal. My attitude will be to just go along with it b/c we'll still have our special day :)

I bet he won't do it lol There is no point worrying about something until it happens. Then when it does as long as its not on your wedding day then it doesn't really matter does it?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
