Man proposes and gets married within the hour on live television

People often hear of flash mobs, but what about flash weddings? Flash weddings are those that happen immediately after the proposal is accepted. As it turns out, one man has one on national live television show, Good Morning America.

Brian Bondy worked hand in hand with Good Morning America staffers to plan a flash wedding for his unsuspecting girlfriend, Melissa Cohn. Cohn happily accepted Bondy's proposal and agreed to get married on live television with the hour, making for a positive ending to a potentially disastrous situation reports ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/02/couple-has-wedding-in-a-flash-in-times-square-live-on-good-morning-america/). For the average person who does not have help from a popular TV show, planning a wedding is tricky business since only one person from the relationship invites the guests, prepares the festivities and decorations, and books the wedding vendors. It can be done with plenty of work and a large time investment, but experts at Wedding.com caution against doing so in case the second person in the relationship is reluctant to comply.

β€œIt could have been a terribly awkward TV moment had Melissa Cohn not wanted to go along with the wedding right then and there, but luckily for the groom (and the producers), everything worked out,” says BrettReynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. β€œA flash wedding is a major risk because you are at the mercy of another person's decision. It is probably best not to plan one unless you are 110% certain your significant other will say yes.”
