Is it Ever OK to Propose at Someone Else’s Wedding?

Picture this: Your wedding day has finally arrived, and you're at the reception, thanking everyone for sharing this special moment with you. A guest proposes a toast, except instead of concluding with raising his glass, he somehow ends up down on one knee, producing a box from his pocket. Shrieks ensue when he pops it open, and guests realize what's going on. Be honest — how would you react?

Etiquette Q&A: “Who Should Lift the Wedding Veil?”

Q. "I plan on wearing a blusher veil and would like to know who should lift it — my dad or my fiancé?"

A. Good question. But first, a fun fact: The blusher veil dates back to ancient times when a bride would cover her face to ward off evil spirits, hide from kidnappers or prevent the groom from seeing her if it was an arranged marriage. Luckily, times have changed and wearing a blusher today is simply a style choice.
