I think this is a lovely idea. I know all the weddings I attending with my now fiancee when we were still dating I spent the whole time fantasizing about our future. It would be so exciting to go to a wedding together and then get engaged soon after! I agree with previous posters though, maybe make sure there is a day or two in between so that it is special for the two of you not a part of the wedding events.

I think it’s totally fine. Two of my cousins got engaged within a week of my wedding. I felt nothing but happiness for them!

There are people in this world who would be upset because their friend got engaged days after their wedding?  For real?

Once you’ve left the parking lot of the reception all proposals are fair game.  Personally I think it would’ve been awesome if someone had proposed at my wedding, spread the love and all that.  But I don’t understand jealously guarding the spotlight at your wedding.  It’s your wedding, the spotlight is a pretty tough thing to shake, even if a dozen other couples get mass-engaged during dinner.

Shoot if anything that would just extend your spotlight, people would be talking about that wedding forever.

Its totally fine as long as you wait until the previous wedding weekend is completely over and you have moved on to your next destination. I might wait an extra little bit of time before posting on social media too, just out of extra sensitivity. A lot of brides/grooms wouldn’t care but you never know who will.

Destination brides are saying on here all the time that their guests are making a vacation of their wedding so why wouldn’t you propose during your vacation? As long as it’s not at the actual wedding then the rest of the time is yours to do whatever you want.

You get a day for weddings so as long as you don’t do it whole attending the wedding then it’ll be OK.

Came here because I think my bf is planning something similar. We are going to Hawaii for a week for his (more distant) cousin’s wedding. We had originally planned on going earlier this year before she even announced her engagement, and postponed our trip to coincide with her wedding. Would it be tacky if he popped the question after the wedding while were still there?

As a PP mentioned, as long as you don’t propose during the ceremony or the reception, it’s fine. If you are on holiday after the wedding, there’s nothing wrong with doing anything you like during that time. I cannot believe there would be people offended that someone didn’t plan a completely separate trip in order to propose. Yikes, high maintenance much?

If you ask after all wedding events, then go for it! Just don’t do it before the wedding or during any of the events they planned/paid for.

I had an aquaintance do this at my wedding. Their “Omg he proposed!!!” picture was taken with props from our photo booth lmao. It was whatev’s though, hooray for love! At least you are considerate enough to think about it. I don’t see any probably proposing a few days after.
