I think it would really depend on how you and your fiance would feel having something like that happen on your wedding day.
On one hand you and your fiance want to have it be YOUR day, As would i!
On the other.. You and your fiance are in love and are expressing your love to the world on that day, Having your friend propose on your wedding is like spreading the love - not to sound cheesy
No matter what answer you two give your friend, I think you should thank them for asking first.
I know i wouldn't be too happy if it was suddenly sprung on my day without me knowing.

Best of Luck!

Great advice asimopoulos!

I would allow it, only after the first dance and all the Bride & Groom events are taken care of and the actual party has started.

finally away from the office! i can check this site out completely! without worrying about who is watching over my shoulder. Thanks everyone for the help. i like the concept of "having my cake and eating it too" that asimopolous and totalphoto gave. i can look like a good friend and still get some in my honeymoon

My brother's old boss proposed at his wedding and kinda sucked but he wasn't a family member so he wasn't stealing the show cause no one really knew them! I wouldn't allow it at my wedding!

good luck on the big day

I wouldn't do it for 2 reason's

If it's just a friend more then likely they don't know many of the people at the wedding and it would be a little uncomfortable. I would think they would want to do it a a function thats has family and friends.

and two - what if it doesn't work out then I would have to hear it all the time.

I think having your own party or get together is the way to go this way the well wishers would be people that actually mean it.

I agree with Diana. If it doesn't work out it is something you would always remember on your wedding day. Another perspective is that it takes away from the proposal for the girl being proposed to. I mean this is her special memory and she too has to share it at a wedding venue with a bride, as opposed to it being just about her.

i would tell him not to do it...for one reason i wouldn't have wanted MY fiance to propose at someone elses wedding i would've died with embaressment...and so might she...i wanted it to be special for our reasons not for anyone elses... and two its not fair to you or your bride...you may not think its a big deal but its your day let them have their day on their own time...you don't want everyone to remember your wedding day as THEIR proposal!!

he needs to think of something more original...there's lot of people here i'm sure can help him out with that...lol...tell him to visit and ask for some ideas!!

just my opinion...good luck!!
