Every few years, a story triggering the same debate arises. Should people get engaged at other people’s weddings? Is it the sin of all weddings or a rom-com-approved opportunity?
Last year, Mirror shared the story of a man who proposed at his sister’s wedding. Even though there was “no big show” in his words, his sister hadn’t taken well to hearing that he “stole her thunder.”
A week ago, a TikTok went viral following a similar thread; sibling gets engaged at their sister’s wedding. However, this time the bride was in on the moment and even purposefully passed the baton (bouquet) onto her sister, who couldn’t have been more surprised.

Despite the bride’s seemingly obvious joy in sharing her day and the age-old debate was quicky ignited. Still, there seemed to be far more support from the ‘share the love camp’ than the ‘pick another day’ troop.
The video has since amassed millions of views and 2.5 million likes. Here’s what people had to say:
“This is called unconditional love and support. The bride wanted her sister to feel as special she feels”
“[I know] the bride was okay with it but me personally I would be mad as the one getting [proposed] to because make it it’s own moment not someone else’s”
“This is how you do a proposal at your [friend’s] weddings. With planning and agreement from all parties, SO CUTE”
“Super cute and completely unselfish. Beautiful Moment”
“When you have your own light it is easy to share the spot. This is so sweet, all the way around”
“If you personally don’t want that at your wedding, that’s fine…don’t rip on someone else for being open to sharing the day with someone else”
“When you find your great love you are excited when the ones you love find it too. Sister getting married understands this”
So, which side of the aisle do you stand on? An adorable act of two kinds of love, or not necessarily your glass of wine?
