Why weddings are so important

Weddings are always exciting, especially for the couple. It is when everyone's attention is on them, and it feels like the whole world has stopped to pay homage to them.

Weddings are important because they mark the beginning of a new life for two people who are crazy about each other.

It binds both individuals to a lifetime of commitment to each other.

The awkward moment

Well, one couple was having the time of their life and assumed that the day was about them, but all the attention was soon taken from them.

A Reddit user who goes by the username, u/samshoe242 shared something she had witnessed at a wedding.

A perfect time to propose. ( bridesmaids friends wedding) from r/trashy

It was a picture of a groomsman proposing to a bridesmaid during someone else's wedding!

The accompanying caption was thick with sarcasm,

"A perfect time propose. (bridesmaid's friend's wedding."

To make matters worse, the Redditor said that the pair had not even asked the couple for permission first.

Others were just as incensed.

A user wrote:

"This is probably the most low and deceitful thing you can do at one of your friend's weddings."

Another bashed:

"If someone did this at my wedding I would never talk to them again." \

This user admitted:

"Not cool. The Wedding day is the special day for the couple getting married, you don't do anything to take the spotlight off them."

There is no question that this is extremely rude.
