Man Who Proposed to Girlfriend at Friend's Wedding Gets Lambasted Online

A man who proposed to his girlfriend while at a wedding was lambasted by the Internet for this thoughtlessness, but the bride was apparently in on it the entire time.

Someone posted a picture on Reddit this week of the man down on one knee proposing in front of the head table at a wedding reception, along with the title “Every Girl’s Wedding Nightmare.” Reddit went to town on the man for stealing the bride and groom’s limelight.

“The new husband seems to be amused, but you can see the wife's face already beginning to contort into the wrath-like trance of hellfire and fury befitting a woman upstaged,” one person wrote.

But no, the Redditor was misreading the bride’s facial expression, the newly engaged woman, identified only as Megan, told the New York Daily News.

Megan is the bride’s sister, and the bride and groom were in on the plan. In fact, the wedding proposal was the bride’s idea, Megan told the newspaper.

“My fiancé told her he didn't want to ruin their day and she insisted it would only make it better!” Megan said. “The groom of the wedding actually held my engagement ring the entire trip! Everyone in the Reddit picture knew the proposal was going to happen except for me!”

In regard to numerous comments about the expression on her sister’s face, Megan told the New York newspaper, “She's actually trying not to cry because it was such a happy moment for all of us.”

The woman said she was “sad” to see all the negative posts on the picture on Reddit.

“It was sad to see,” she said. “I guess if I didn't know the whole story, then I would feel the same way as some of them; however, I wouldn't voice my opinion about it because it's none of my business.”

Still, the criticism continued Thursday.
