depends. If it was a sibling or a close friend I would probably be thrilled (and hopefully in on it) – I would expect the prospective new groom to ask my blessing though!
A casual friend/acquaintance? get your own damn celebration!

I wouldn’t be ok with this but I think the worst part about this is putting people who I assume are your loved ones (the bride and groom) in an awkward position by asking. My rational side sees how someone could think it’s ok to propose at someone’s wedding, it’s a room full of love and friends and family but there’s a lot about wedding planning that is feelings based and not rational. The fact that someone can’t wear certain color or style to an event isn’t rational but I’m still not wearing a white dress to a wedding that isn’t mine.

I love that!! I personally would love to do that for a friend at my wedding, but I think my family and FI’s family (more traditional and rules-concerned) would think it was rude :/ But I still think it’s great, thanks for sharing!

if i were doing the proposing, i’d consider doing it after the wedding on the same trip. i’d never consider doing it AT the wedding – doesn’t seem very appropriate
