    I think for me it would be okay if I knew ahead of time.

    Not appropriate, not at all.

    One of my friends joked about one of my bridesmaid’s boyfriends doing that at the reception, and thinking about it almost made my head explode.  NOT okay.

    Grotesquely rude.  If you want a big spectacle for your proposal, plan and pay for your own party instead of hijacking somebody else’s.

    Not at all ok. If someone did that to me, I’d make sure and announce my pregnancy at their wedding. 😀

    COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE!!! The night is supposed to be for the bride and groom, not about a couple getting engaged..I think that is terrible!! Haha

    I’ve actually encouraged a friend of mine to propose to his girlfriend at my wedding – I think it would be kind of cool! I was like, I’ll make sure she catches the bouquet and you catch the garter, then you can propose when she sits down for you to put the garter on her! But just because I’m cool with it doesn’t mean everyone is – you should defs check with the bride and groom ahead of time. It’s definitely not cool if they aren’t on board.

    With the bride and groom’s permission it is AOK.  I was present for a proposal at a wedding reception and it was cool because the groom and couple were lifelong friends.  All of their parents were there too.

    Not only is it rude to the bride and groom, it’s rude to the person he proposed too!

    I wouldn’t care if it was later on at the reception. Ceremony or immediately after I mght be a bit peeved.


    Most people I know would freak though, lol just thinking about it!

    It wouldn’t bother me as the bride.  But I see why it would bother other brides.  And I see why as the new fiance she could have wished for her own moment…!
