Very poor judgment on his part. Oh well, what’s done is done and you should wish them the best.

OMG, that is one of the worst proposals I could imagine.

Never seen it done, what a lame thing to do! The bride & maybe groom planned this day for a while and all he did was show up and propose. If anything would’ve been slightly better if he had at least done it in private…

Umm I might be the odd girl out but I know of a MOH who was proposed to at her best friends wedding. It was great ..but then again the guy ask if it was out and the bride was happy with it. Also since it was the end of the wedding when all the dancing started noone thought it was tacky or spot-light stealing. I honestly wouldn’t mind as long as it not doign the ceremony …now to me thats tacky.

I know I’ve clucked my tongue at brides who object to anyone getting engaged in, on, or around their “wedding week” – but in the middle of the reception? That’s a little gauche, if you ask me. But if the bride was fine with it, then hey. Guess whatever works, works.

Meh, it depends on the people involved. Personally, I’d be thrilled if someone got engaged at my wedding. It’d just add to the joy of the day. But I imagine some people would feel like it was spotlight-stealing. If someone’s going to do that, he/she should make 100% sure that the marrying couple and the person getting proposed to are ok with it.

If someone proposed to their girlfriend at my wedding, I would at least hope it was done privately and not in front of the entire party. My first thought wasn’t even how the bride or groom would react, but rather how the poor girl getting engaged would feel. I know that I would have been beyond mortified if my boyfriend proposed to me like this. I definitely think what he did was in poor taste.

I would be thrilled if someone got engaged at my wedding. It just seems like a beautiful way to share my happiness. (But I seem to be in the minority here…)

SilverWire:  I feel like I would be okay with this if it happened at my wedding but only because I’m very close to all of my 40 guests.

I do think it’s really weird if they were trying to make a big deal about it during the reception. And not being close with the couple, ew, weird.

This is the worst. I would in no way feel right whether I was the bride or I was the girl being proposed to. It just seems wrong to me. In my opinion, no one should be trying to take attention way from the bride and groom for their own gains.
