Why Is Proposing At Someone’s Wedding Even A Thing?

"If you propose at my wedding, I'm sending half of the bill to you."

Posted on

Weddings are a joyous event and a special occasion to celebrate the union of a couple.

ABC

ONE COUPLE, that is.

Music Choice

You probably wouldn't wear white to someone's wedding, so it's probably not a great idea to propose.

NBC

UNLESS you've asked the couple for permission and they're 100% on board with it, then that's totally fine.

It's even better when the people getting married are in on the plan!

BUUUT sometimes there are couples who get an unwelcome surprise and end up upstaged at their own wedding.

Remember the bride who wrote into Slate's advice column about the groom's best man who not only proposed to his girlfriend, but ALSO announced their pregnancy? #SadTimes

Look at this nightmare y'all. I absolutely wouldn't speak to John or Jane ever again.

I mean does the one proposing not see anything wrong with taking away the spotlight from the newlyweds??? How about the one being proposed to?
