When it comes to weddings, there are a lot of unwritten rules. Etiquette things. Things we avoid doing because we don’t want to be rude jerks. For example, don’t wear a fancy white dress to a wedding. I’ve seen this rule broken time and time again. But trust me, unless the couple chose some “theme” requiring you to do so, maybe just wear one of the other billion colors available to you. Also, don’t bring a guest unless your invitation said “plus one.” Bring a gift. Etc, etc. etc.
You get my point. There’s a lot of do’s and don’ts.
I think one of the major no-no’s would be DO NOT GET ENGAGED AT ANOTHER PERSON’S WEDDING. Maybe I’m selfish, but I would want MY day to be about ME. Ideally, we only get one wedding in our lifetime, we spend a dang fortune on it, and it’s one of the biggest events in a person’s life. So it’s not too much to ask for people to focus on you and your new milestone for one measly day…is it? I know I’m not alone in this……but I’m sure there are some people who feel differently.
And to you, I say, RIGHT ON. You are a far more selfless person than I.
Recently Wedding Magazine shared this Instagram post showing the sweet story of a couple who broke ALL THE RULES! So I guess maybe the new wedding club rule is that there are no rules?
The post shares the story of a bride who was obviously in cahoots with the man! She faked throwing her bouquet twice, then just turned around and handed it to one of her bridesmaids! Then, on queue, the man emerges from the crowd, drops to his knee and presents a RING!
The comments include:
onyeakirkland- “Nope its my day!!”
Clopezrolon- “Why not choose any of the other 364 days of the year?”
and more along those lines…but not everyone disapproved!
lemery_ – “How special!”
So what do you think? Would you be okay with this at your wedding? or heck no?
