Annoyed for sure 🙂  I just think it is generally bad form to do something that will purposely take the focus off the B&G.

Hmm I have heard of this happening.  I think its kinda werid since like you said it is their day..But I guess if you asked the couple who are getting married and they say sure then I guess it wouldn’t be a problem.  But I have to say for me..I would not like it very much!

I think it depends on who the people were that got engaged…

I will say that one of my best friends and bridesmaid has been in a serious relationship for almost three years and I have daydreams of him proposing at our wedding and getting to announce it to all our friends there! That, for me, would make the day double special and my friends and I would always share that significant date…

If it was someone I didn’t know, I’d probably not be super-pleased but still prolly wouldn’t care that much, just be happy for them but not care that much…

I totally agree. dont use my day as your time to ask your girlfriend to be your wife. not only is that personal, but i feel like the bride and groom have worked SOOOO hard to pull everything together for that day…don’t steal their sunshine.

we got engaged about a month before this wedding we were invited to….the wedding was a HUGEEEEE heap of FI’s former coworkers whom he hadnt seen for like 2 months prior because he had switched companies…they all had known we were getting engaged soon (just didnt know when) so when we got to the wedding, EVERYONE (like seriously 80 people from his old job) were congratulating us and asking us about the proposal, and when our wedding was goign to be…i felt REALLY bad and awkward because I felt like we had stolen a little of the spotlight from the bride and groom that day.  luckilyfor us, they are a gracious, laidback and awesome couple. Can’t say the same for myself!!! HAHAH I’d have been PISSED! lol.

I would HATE it!! I’m already dealing with a future aunt that keeps bringing up that our wedding is on her daughter’s “special day” aka birthday.

NOT.OK. 

My brother went to a wedding where the bride’s sister had been horrible through the whole planning process because she was so upset about not being the center of attention.  She ended up forcing her boyfriend to propose to her at the reception.  I would have lost it.  My bro said it was super awkward for everyone there.

I would probably be upset. As many have pointed out on this website, the bride gets a day, not a weekend or a week or a month or a year. THIS IS MY DAY! Fiance and I get 24 hours to be the center of attention, don’t be stealing my thunder!

Or, if you really want to propose on that specific day, be respectful of your hosts (aka the bride and groom) and don’t do it at the wedding. Leave early, go for a walk, and propose on your own time. And don’t come back to the reception to announce it. Enjoy it on your own.

If you propose at my wedding, I’ll announce I’m knocked up at yours Tongue out

On a normal day, I’m ecstatic when my friends get engaged. I love my friends, and I want them to be happy.

However, we each deserve OUR one day, and I would be extremely upset if my day were interrupted by a proposal.

I know that sounds awful, but I’m just asking for my one day of wedding bliss.
