A woman got a little ahead of herself when she decided to send out wedding invitations after a Facebook quiz she took predicted she’d be married this year.

There’s just one problem: her boyfriend hadn’t actually proposed to her.

According to an anonymous post shared by a friend who received an RSVP for the event, the bride-to-be had started planning the wedding after one of those “fake fortune games” told her.

In a post shared with The Sun, the worried friend wrote:

I love my friend dearly, and her boyfriend of a few years is really an awesome guy. Love hanging out with them! Sometime after New Year’s Day, she did a Facebook game that told her she’s getting married this year (those fake fortune games). I told her that I could see a wedding for them happening sometime though.

She messaged me on Instagram today to rsvp for a “special event” on Zola, which is when I realised she’s really been planning her wedding! I’m really excited for her to get ready for this time in her life but I guess I’m confused as to what’s happening here lol​

The post, which the friend put on Facebook, drew confusion from her friends, who admitted that they, too, had no idea what was happening.

One person wrote: “Why do people plan their wedding BEFORE BEING PROPOSED TO?!”

Others pointed out that what was weird wasn’t the planning the wedding part, it was sending out RSVPs to an event that wasn’t even an event yet.

There was also this theory, which is pretty airtight:

"There are two basic possible scenarios here and one of them isn't shame-worthy at all."

Scenario 1: Groom has no idea she's planning a wedding, or knows she wants one but it hasn't been decided yet/he's uncertain/unwilling; aka it's mostly her.

... Scenario 2: They have discussed their plans like adults and are planning, but he wants to surprise her with a formal proposal.

Completely normal and not shame-worthy.
