No, you are not crazy. This day is about you and your relationship. NOT THEM! Tell him that he can propose afterward. Like at an afterparty or something. BUT NOT AT YOUR WEDDING OR RECEPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is just plain rude.
And I vote that you should Tazr him just for asking!

Not to mention, that I wouldn’t have like my engagement memory be at someone else’s wedding. He should do something to make her feel special!

Good lord. Has he lost his mind?!?!?!   He can ask her AFTER he takes her home FROM your reception and say something like:  "Listening to XX and XX taking their vows made me realize how much I want you to be my wife" that would be appropriate sometime after your wedding reception but not during.  Turning your reception into their engagement party just isn’t right.  🙁

yeah, some distant relative of my husband’s asked us AT THE RECEPTION if he could make a toast b/c it was my husband’s parents’ 30th anniversary the day after.  what were we going to say, no?  it was just very odd when he did it and awkward, especially since my MIL’s siblings also had anniversaries very close to our wedding date.  proposing is SO much worse than that, and really tacky!  tell him to come up with his own special event and stop being a cheapo by doing it at your fancy event!

That wouldn’t bother me at all. Weddings are a celebration of love – if our happiness is so great that someone else wants the same thing, I’d be happy for them.

 

It won’t make the day any less about you, except for your friend & his GF.

I hate to say it, but that would bother me too. At least he ran it past you first, hopefully he will respect you enough not to.

Yeah I don’t blame you. It’s the equivalent of someone wearing white to your wedding. Ugh, tacky.

it was considerate of him to ask, but still a little tacky.  you are not being a crazy bride.

At least he asked first.  I wouldn’t want anyone proposing on my wedding day either.  It’s like he’s trying to steal your thunder!

Youre not crazy.   Im not usually a "bridezilla" like this, there are a lot of things that I’d tolerate/toss to the wind, but if someone proposed to someone else at my wedding, I’d be more than annoyed.  Its your wedding day.  Tell him to save it for another day.  I’d pretty much tazer the crap out of him so much if I saw him get down on one knee to tie his shoe…hahahaha  🙂

And like evelyn said…I’d be annoyed if I were his girlfriend as well…I’d like to be proposed to during my own special moment, not someone else’s special moment!

depends on how he did it – if it was public, on the microphone, so everyone could hear it, then i’d say no. but if he wanted to do it privately/quietly, then i wouldn’t mind. however, he better make sure his girlfriend is ok with it… i’d be a little ticked if i thought my boyfriend was proposing just because he got sentimental at someone else’s wedding!

Tell him that a swarm of bees will come after him if he proposes to his girlfriend at your reception.  NOT. COOL.  Nor would I think that she would think it was cool.  The day should be something special that he plans…. he shouldn’t mooch off of someone else’s special day and turn it into his/theirs!

Tell him you will help him plan an extra special proposal to take place AFTER your wedding.  Bribe him into waiting if you have to
