Could you forgive and forget if you were upstaged on your wedding day?
A bride has taken to twitter to ask her followers if staying angry is unreasonable, after the best man proposed to his girlfriend on her wedding day.
Your wedding day is not only one of the biggest days of your life, that has been meticulously planned and thought about since childhood, it’s also the only day the attention is all yours. The one day that purely celebrates the future of you and your partner, surrounded by the closest of friends and family.
But this wasn’t the case for this angry bride after she was upstaged by her friend’s proposal – mid ceremony!
The whole series of events was told by the angry bride in a letter she decided to write to an advice column called ‘dear prudence’. This is what she said:
“We’ve done really well for ourselves and finally reached a point where we could afford a huge blowout wedding to celebrate our lives with everyone we know and love. My husband’s best friend, “John”, was the best man.’
She then reveals the poorly timed proposal…
‘The entire atmosphere felt moving, so moving in fact, that John stopped mid-ceremony to propose to his long-time girlfriend, “Jane”, and reveal her pregnancy.’
Unfortunately, the attention for the newly engaged couple didn’t stop there, as the bride explains what happened next…
‘I couldn’t even hear the vows my husband wrote or the rest of the ceremony over the noise of Jane’s happy sobs, her very surprised family who were also guests and people seated nearby congratulating her. ‘
‘John even went out of his way to ask the band for a special dance for just him and Jane on the dance floor.’
The unnamed bride decided to take the whole letter of anger to twitter and ask her followers if she was being unreasonable; the letter became popular quick and divided opinion.
So what do you think? Is her anger unnecessary? Or is she right to be angry at her friends thunder stealing proposal?
