'Dear mum, it's your time now': Daughter's sweet gesture at wedding goes viral
A mother gets proposed to at her daughter's wedding in a moment that was captured on video and went viral
Wedding guests and netizens were left dumbfounded after a clip of a mother getting proposed to during her daughter's wedding went viral. In the TikTok video that has been viewed over 1.2 million times, user Chloe Robinson captured the moment when she pretended to throw her wedding bouquet to the crowd but instead gave it to her mother. "Dear Mum, it’s your time now," Chloe wrote in the comments of the video.
The bride, Chloe, in a custom that has thrilled for hundreds of years, was ready to throw the flowers behind her to the guests' cheering faces. It usually implies that whoever receives the bouquet will walk down the aisle next. Chloe quickly descended the stairs to present the flowers to her mother, who was startled by the sudden turn of events.
The mother's partner then came over and dropped down on one knee as he proposed, drawing loud cheers from family and friends. The video captured the moment as the wedding guests cheered enthusiastically. Several of them promptly pulled out their phones to capture the joyful occasion.
The mother quickly agreed to the proposal, although with a few tears in her eyes, as she was trying to take in the overwhelming moment. The bride's mother gave her new husband-to-be a joyful embrace and a short kiss.
Although it's considered inappropriate to propose on another person's special day, the charming proposal had netizens holding back tears as the bride explained why she wanted her mother to share her special day.
Chloe said in a comment, "She gave me away, so I wanted her to match me." Robinson said in a comment.
"What a beautiful way to be able to say ‘thanks Mum for all you have done and by my side,’ so sweet," a user said. Another wrote: "How beautiful to share your special day with someone you clearly love so much." A third said, "What wonderful memories for the whole family...teaching the kids a valuable lesson about sharing joy."
While some objected that a stunt like this would ruin their special day, others were enthusiastic about the suggestion. "Honestly I wouldn’t care if someone purposed at my wedding, it’s x2 the fun," a user gushed. "So not a 'not on MY day', 'no kids rule', 'it’s all about me'…kind of bride😊" a second person wrote. "Beautiful. What a day to spread the love. Congratulations all," a third penned.
