Imagine you’re getting married and everyone you know is there. Your best guy friend is officiating the ceremony, but, midway through, he stops and PROPOSES TO HIS GIRLFRIEND. Whaaaaaaaat? The internet is now freaking out over a man who interrupted a wedding to propose, according to Slate’s “Dear Prudence” column. Of course, that is so not cool. Who does that?
The bride wrote about it to Slate’s “Dear Prudence” column, aka Mallory Ortberg. Here’s what happened after the best friend, “John,” proposed:
WTF? And it gets worse (!) — you can read more of the bride’s letter here.
As you can probably guess, many people tweeted about how insanely MESSED UP it is to propose at your best friend’s wedding.

What did Prudence have to say?
We know — it’s probably hard to imagine reconciling the friendship after such a HUGE blow on your wedding day. But, at the same time, that is was your best friend. For future guidance, it’s probably best to keep your wedding proposal personal to you and your significant other. Make it into your own special day — don’t ruin someone else’s.
