Few things can stir up trouble at a wedding like these three: a mother of the bride or groom wearing white, proposing to your partner amid the festivities and the notorious bridal bouquet toss that's been known to spark a scuffle or two. Yet, at Chloe Robinson's wedding, it was this very recipe for disaster that made it a memorable event for all her guests. A video—going viral on TikTok with more than 1.5 million views since being uploaded earlier this month—shows the heartwarming moment from Robinson's wedding when her mom was left speechless by a surprise proposal.
Robinson took eventful weddings to a new extreme during her bouquet toss when she tricked those waiting to catch the wedding bouquet. The video shows the blushing bride pretending to get ready to throw it before rushing over to her mom and handing the flowers to her. As you know, the bouquet toss—a tradition that has excited wedding guests for hundreds of years—is said to determine who would be next to walk down the aisle by whoever catches the bouquet. Although Robinson's family and friends were momentarily stunned by her actions, they erupted into cheers moments later when her mom's partner got down on one knee and popped the question.
Although it's generally considered a social faux pas to propose on someone else's wedding day, this beautiful proposal has fans "holding back tears," as the bride explained why she wanted her mother to share her big day. "She gave me away so I wanted her to match me," Robinson shared in a comment in response to one that reads: "How selfless of the bride on her day." This probably also explains why she must've had her mother also wear a white dress to her wedding. "Dear Mum, it's your time now," the newlywed penned in another comment.
