It was one wedding and a funeral.

A South African pastor is being excoriated online after filming himself proposing to a grieving woman in the middle of her father’s funeral — mere feet from the deceased’s coffin. Video of the proposal has over 278,000 views as critics accuse the man of making the somber occasion about himself.

“Proposing [to] the deceased’s daughter right at the funeral. Wiping the tears there and there,” reads the caption to the clip, which was uploaded a week ago by the fiancé — who goes by @M.Mojela on TikTok.

According to CEN, the pastor, who was presiding over the service, had asked for the woman’s hand in order to help heal her broken heart.

After a long, pandemic-induced wedding drought, the industry is busier than it has been in decades — and venues, vendors and planners are feeling the squeeze.

Staggering stat: There will be an estimated 2.5 million weddings in 2022, which is the most the U.S. has seen since 1984, according to The Wedding Report, a market research firm.

Excerpts:

by Jonas Grinevičius and Austėja Akavickaitė

…A redditor shared how their parents were planning to use their wedding as a way to make bank.

See, they were planning to force their child to invite all of their distant relations and acquaintances so that everybody brings money as a gift.

That, in their parents’ opinion, is their way of getting back all the cash that they gave out at other people’s weddings, graduation parties, and other important events.

Naturally, the redditor confronted their parents when they realized that they have zero control over their own wedding.

This real-life Mean Girl gang have over 38,000 members who all take pleasure in deliberately slamming strangers’ weddings

WHILE most of us use Facebook to gloat about our fancy vaycays and watch videos of cute puppies, the social media platform has recently become host to one of the harshest pastimes around — wedding shaming.

Groups of people huddle together in private digital dungeons to blast, roast and tear apart other people’s special days in the name of fun — and it’s absolutely brutal.

You can critique dresses, decorations and of course, dramatic brides who are kindly dubbed “bridezillas”.

Bride’s Wedding Shoot Becomes Tribute to Her Late Fiance After A Tragic Accident

Yep. Even if you do manage to get engaged (I was engaged once) or get married, this doesn’t mean it’s going to last a life time.

I have several examples on my blog (see bottom of this blog post under “Related Posts” section) of married people where one (or both!) get killed on their wedding day or shortly there-after, from being in car accidents to getting diseases. In some cases, one of the couple will die shortly before the wedding date.

….The only person missing from the long-planned ceremony was her groom, the love of her life, who had been killed by an alleged drunk driver last fall.

The wedding date had been set, the small town church with the white cross picked as the venue, and a fitted white wedding dress chosen during a rite-of-passage shopping trip with Padgett’s mother, grandmother, sister and her soon-to-be mother-in-law.

Self-Absorbed Man Hi-Jacks Wedding Ceremony

There goes the stereotypical evangelical Christian propaganda that the reason you’re still single past the age of 30 is because you’re still too (insert one or more: selfish, immoral, irresponsible, immature, ugly) to get a spouse, and God won’t send you one ’til you get your stuff together.

Forget that. The idiot in this following story was proposing marriage to someone…

A recent bride wrote in to (Link): Slate’s advice columnist Dear Prudence (a.k.a. Mallory Ortberg) about “John” ― her huband’s best friend, best man, and wedding officiant ― who had the audacity to propose to his longtime girlfriend and announce their pregnancy DURING the ceremony.

On top of that, “John” ― not his real name ― found other ways to make the rest of the day about him and his fiancée “Jane.” The bride explained:
