Friends of mine used our wedding as their honeymoon because they couldn't afford to both since our weddings were within 6 months. So they were celebrating their wedding as well. I think it would have been pretty bridezilla of me to say "you can't show any signs that you're celebrating your marriage while vacationing with us". I think the whole thing just needs to be put into perspective.

I really doubt it will take away ANYTHING from your wedding. Especially b/c you mentioned that barely any of your guests really know them. So for one minute on the day before your wedding some ppl will congratulate them but this will hardly steal your thunder. I dont mean for this to sound so harsh but in the end - on your wedding day i guarantee it will be all about you and their engagement will have ZERO impact.

Just because you might get a little less attention during the week shouldn't take away from what really matters. I guess I am in the minority here because I think he should be able to propose whenever he wants. Yes they are there for your wedding but that's only one day. And unless she is a total biznatch I can't imagine someone walking around with their ring in the air making it all about them. It will still be your day! In fact, it will be whatever you make it!

I don't think that the entire week is all about the bride and groom but I think that they should be respectful the day before and of course the day of the wedding should be about the bride and groom.
Will it kill him if he waits until after the wedding (I mean the actual wedding, not after the wedding week)? He can still do it at the destination, just wait till after. I don't see the big deal with that.
And I do think it it interesting that all the women that had their wedding already are ok with it.
I love being a Mrs.!

But the first thought that went through my head was how will his gf feel? When my FI proposed to me it was on a weekend trip a couple hours away from our house, just the two of us in the mountains, and it meant a lot to me that he did it like that. I think this guy is taking the easy route out by using his buddy's DW to propose. He should really get creative and do something special for her, not just use all of your efforts and planning for his own means. It is kind of selfish and she may even be emabarrassed to tell her friends/family where and when he did it. Maybe if you tell him this angle he will change his mind? Good Luck!!
Does anyone know of a couple that got engaged at another wedding? How did that go over??
