Bride's wedding plans in ruins after partner claims he 'doesn't remember' proposing

A woman has claimed seven months of planning her "dream wedding" have been left in tatters after her 'fiancé' said he had no recollection of popping the question.

The stunned 'bride' said it was only when she mentioned plans to begin shopping for her wedding dress that the revelation came out, with the man not only saying he had 'forgotten' the proposal, but he had no idea the pair were even dating.

After asking for advice on social media, people were left baffled as many assumed he had made a "tongue-in-cheek" comment which was misunderstood, while others said it could be gaslighting.

The post to a bridal Facebook group reads: "OK can I get some advice ladies? Nine months ago my (what I thought was) fiancé asked me to marry him.

"He didn't have a ring so I assumed it was a spur of the moment decision, but I am a chill woman, I understood the ring will come later and all that matters is we have each other.

"I have been planning my dream wedding for seven months now.

“When I told him I was going dress shopping, he looked at me like I have five heads. Long story short, he claims he never proposed to me!

"He said 'Why would I propose to a woman I’m not even dating?'"

She added: "I am thinking of tricking him into coming to our wedding and just seeing what happens. Not too sure what else I could do."

People were left baffled by the story, with many believing it must have been a joke which was taken seriously, as reported by 7News.

One commented: "I didn't know I was dating my husband for the first two weeks, but that is way different than being engaged for months.

"She probably said something clever or cute and the guy said 'Will you marry me?' tongue in cheek."

But a second argued: "Everyone’s talking about how [bizarre] the woman is, but no one is talking about how the dude might have been gaslighting her the whole time."

And a third even claimed to have gone through a similar experience, writing: "This happened to me. Proposed, planning a wedding without a ring, used the ring money to buy a hunting licence and bow then asked me what the hell I was talking about when I brought up my ring."
