A bride has questioned whether she’s wrong after allowing her best mate to get engaged at her wedding, but not her cousin.
The newlywed posted on Reddit for advice in the “Am I the A**hole forum”.
She explained that she got engaged in February 2020 and in July her best mate’s boyfriend asked her if he could propose at her wedding.
The bride said: “They've been dating for five years, and I've been best friends with my best friend for 15 years, so when he asked if he could propose at my wedding, I was really happy to share the joy with this amazing girl.
“We came up with a plan, he was incredibly respectful and told me that if at anytime I decided I didn't want the proposal to happen at my wedding, he'd accept it. "
What do you think? Was she in the wrong? Tell us in the comments…
The big day came around and was small due to pandemic restrictions.
Her friend’s boyfriend proposed as planned, reports Yahoo.
She said: “So, I'm tossing the bouquet and I spin around and hand it to her instead of throwing it, he kneels down, it was all very cute.
"After this, we're celebrating, we're both excited, everything seems to be going off without a hitch.
“Twenty minutes later, my cousin's boyfriend goes up to the DJ (my little brother) and asks him for the mic.”
She continued: “He takes it, asks my cousin to come up next to him, and I quickly realised what was going on.
“To be fully honest, I didn't want to share the day with my cousin.
"She's always been a bit of an attention hogger, and I knew she would make the day all about her."
So, the bride went up to her cousin’s partner and asked him not to propose at her wedding.
She explained: “He gets incredibly upset, saying my friend got engaged, why shouldn't he be able to, etc, etc.
“My cousin and aunt also got incredibly pissed off at me, saying it's not fair that my friend got engaged and she can't, and are accusing me of being incredibly biased.
"I don't think it was on the spot.
“He started talking and giving a speech before I butted in, and he's either an excellent improviser or it was planned.
“He also had a ring in his pocket, I'm not sure if he was planning to do it after the wedding, or was planning on doing it in the reception the whole time, which pisses me off so much more."
In the comments, people were on the bride’s side.

One person said: “OP's family is ignoring the fact that OP's best friend's BF (fiance) approached her in advance to ask for permission and allowed OP to figure out how to slot it into the reception in a respectful way.”
“Damn, did they think it was open mic night,” joked a second.
While a third added: “I can't believe anyone would propose at someone else's wedding, but at least your best friend's bf asked and you planned it together.
“They can be as mad as they want, it was your wedding and your choice."
