We grow up dreaming of our wedding day and most of us start planning our dress and imaging our ‘Prince Charming’ before we know the meaning of ‘nuptials’.
When the Big Day eventually arrives, we’re giddy with excitement – nothing can spoil that moment… Until the best man gets down on one knee and proposes to his partner at your reception!
What a disaster.
Instead of the Bride taking centre stage, she’s left by the wayside, congratulating the new couple; it’s definitely not the fairy-tale ending she was expecting.
So here are five reasons why proposals DO NOT belong at a wedding.
1. Attention Grabbing
There are 364 other days left in the year there’s really no reason you NEED to propose on this particular day!
2. Save the Drama for a Soap Opera
I mean how devastating and embarrassing would it be if it all went wrong and she said no.
3. It’s Not Your Fairy-Tale
Wedding planning is expensive and time consuming. I’m sure the couple want this day to go according to plan.
4. Once in a Lifetime
I don’t think the Bride and Groom want to forever remember your proposal every time they think about their special day.
5. It’s All About You
Having to share such a significant milestone with so many other people, can diminish the importance of such an enchanting moment.
If all else fails and you’re adamant on proposing at a Wedding, make sure you get permission from the Bride and Groom first!
