    Rather than thinking of it in dollars and cents, perhaps that particular bride and groom are glad to share their happy day and remember it not only as ‘theirs’ but as great day for good friends as well.

    If if doesn’t bother the bride and groom(and they are clearly in on making it happen), why should it bother the guests?

    I’d be thrilled!! As the bride I would have adored that. But I’m not an attention on me kinda woman. I love to share the love. We had a double wedding so me and my brother married our partners standing up there together!

    No. Not under any circumstances is this appropriate.

    I would be fine with it. The more joy the merrier.

    As long as the bride and groom are fine with it I see no problem. But I also wouldn’t consider someone’s wedding like an engagement party if I were to get engaged there. Typically if it’s a friend’s wedding I only know some other friends and maybe a few family members on either the bride or groom’s side. Or if it is a family wedding your friends wouldn’t be there. So the engaged couple wouldn’t even probably be close enough with so many people at the wedding in most cases that it would even feel like they could take it over as an engagement party.

    I actually think this was really nice. They’re all obviously really good friends and wanted to share their day and their joy. I would be bothered if it was somethin not planned at all and without the couples permission, but this was planned by all of them. It was really sweet.

    Honestly, I dont’ think it’s appropriate, but that was a very cute story/video… However I would NEVER want to be proposed to at someone else’s wedding.

    I actually want my MOH/best friend of 16 years to get engaged at my wedding. I would be thrilled. I just can’t think of any appropriate way to bring it up to her SO (who does intend to propose to her, just not sure when)

    I thought it was totally lovely and you could tell (as far as the bride and groom are concerned) absolutely genuinely well intended! 

    I really think that is ALL that matters. This bride and this groom wanted to share thier day. 

    (it would be a shame if this became a trend and couples felt pressured by thier friends to go along with something like this. That would be so not good…)
