yogabride2018 :  My fiance and I attended a wedding right after getting engaged and they did a special shout out to us while everyone was out on the dance floor, it was incredibly sweet.

goodasitgets :  I may be particularly obtuse, but I’ve had friends wave their hands around more than usual to try to get me to notice their ring and I don’t until they quite literally shove it in my face. So I’m not entirely convinced that it will be super obvious to people who aren’t expecting there to be a proposal.

Beautiful and magnanimous and saying much about the woman you are. Such gestures restore my faith in the World of Brides and Bees!

BLESSINGS!

I think it’s a really sweet idea! As a guest, I would adore this and like the bride even more for celebrating her friend’s love at her wedding. I would check with the groom-to-be first, then check with her once shes officially engaged to make sure she’d be comfortable with the attention. I would do what you’d planned, give a little toast and hand her your extra bouquet… I think it would be a really sweet moment!!

yogabride2018 :. WRT your parents, I’ve seen that kinda thing a few times. The dj would say “And the brides parents have been married for #x years! Get out there and show everyone what lasting love looks like” when it wasn’t even an anniversary. 

It’s not weird; it’s a tribute and exemplar. I think it’s always really encouraging to see these kinds of moments. I say do it

As for your friend, I’d do a shout out during a dance and then maybe take her aside after and tell her how happy and excited you are for her. You can give her the flowers or not, but seeing as she doesn’t really know anyone else, an intimate moment with you might mean more than a public announcement. Plus you can sprinkle all your bridal cooties on her, that way.

yogabride2018 :  this all seems super nice of you!  The only thought I have is to make sure everyone is planning to change their last name, unless you’re from a community where not doing so would be unheard of.

I know the idea of “proposing at someone’s wedding” or even just announcing it at the wedding never sits well with brides, and I totally understand that. But I think what you want to do is extremely sweet and if you’re okay with it, I say go for it! (Maybe just check with them first, just in case.) It sounds like it’s going to be really special. Have a beautiful wedding!

yogabride2018 :  it’s up to you since it’s your wedding and you seem to want to do it. Only person I see getting annoyed about  a situation like this, it would be the couple getting married, however since it’s you who wants to do it I don’t see a problem . Now if it were her asking this question I’d say NO WAY!!
