Just engaged at a wedding?

I am newly engaged (two days ago!) and have been spreading the word among my family and friends. We'd like to tell my fiance's family, but have yet to do so. The reason is that his stepsister is getting married this Saturday, and I don't want my engagement to take any shine away from her day. My fiance is not close to her, nor do I know any of her extended family, but her/my fiance's immediate family will be there.

I am NOT planning to announce the news at the actual wedding. But it would be the first time I'd see them after they heard the news.

I'm bummed that I won't be able to wear my engagement ring and tell everyone, but this is the right thing do, right? Or am I being bigheaded to even think that my engagement would steal her thunder? What would you do?
