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 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.

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.....
