Over the past few years, the internet has seen a lot of marriage proposals – some of them good, some of them not so good…

Bassist Jason casually got down on one knee after the band performed to 80,000 Ed Sheeran fans earlier this year. Imagine the nerves!

According to the woman in the photo, the bride was totally fine about it and in fact encouraged the couple to co-opt her big day by getting engaged during it. The internet, however, disagreed.

Unsurprisingly, given her reaction, the couple agreed to wait until they were both ready to get married.

Again, the place where the couple first met. But again, proof that that’s not always the best place to pop the question.
