My brother ended up proposing to his GF on Christmas night. It wasn't planned and he decided to do it then at the last minute. Running from her mom's house, to her dad's to ask his permission, to my parents house (where he lives) to get the ring and then back to her mom's house. She said he was acting weird and then mumbled over some words and said, "Will You Marry Me" on one knee and when he opened the ring box he broke it because he was so nervous! It was a cute story
Because she wouldn't be done with her Masters (if she goes to grad school) until May of 2015 I thought they wouldn't be getting married before that but they said they are thinking of June 2014, which is pretty soon.. and she has already asked her BMs she has 7 of them... my brother asked his BF to be the BM and DH to be a GM. She says he needs to have 7 too...
I really hope *** doesn't hit the fan with the WP because she asked so soon... and I hate myself for saying this a little, but I am slightly sad that she didn't ask me to be a BM... I know, I know we should never assume we are in someone's wedding party, the girl choses her girls and the guy choses his guys. I asked my FSIL and DH asked my brother. It was important to us that our families be beside us on our wedding day. I know not everyone thinks this way.
Plus I am not thrilled about not sitting with DH during my brother's wedding, I know if I was a BM we wouldn't be sitting together either but with him standing up there I feel kind of left out of my own brother's wedding.
I know, I know I am sounding like those crazy people we hated when we planned our weddings. Everything is still in the early stages, but I already feel so left out of the one of the most important days of my brother's life.
I am sorry I sound so crazy.
