AS diehard Taylor Swift fans, we have to admit – it's our absolute dream to be proposed to in the pouring rain in New York while wearing a Romeo and Juliet-style ball gown and cowboy boots. If you know, you KNOW.
In her new song Paper Rings, Taylor admits that she'd marry her lover without a flashy piece of jewellery – which let's be honest, isn't exactly how most women would like their partners to pop the question.
That said, one bloke took the song's meaning a bit too literally when he proposed to his Taylor Swift superfan fiance with a ring made of paper.
Using the Lover album cover art for inspiration, the well-meaning groom covered the engagement ring box in paper and coloured the top in blue.
On the inside, the man stuck the Lover logo on the top of the lid and placed the "ring" in a bed of blush pink tissue paper.
Luckily, the bloke did have a diamond ring on hand for his fiance too and the thrilled bride-to-be proudly shared photos of the DIY proposal and quoted the lyric: "I like shiny things and he proposed to me with paper rings."
However, it wasn't long until the woman's post ended up in the Facebook group That's It, I'm Wedding Shaming – and people were quick to label it "cringe AF".
"I love her too but this is a hell no," one user replied.
Another joked: "Love the song paper rings but if my fiancé literally did it and then gave me that disaster of a ring I'd flip."
A third simply wrote: "Way to ruin a song…."
Meanwhile, others joked that the ring box looked like it was covered in toilet roll.
But not everyone was so critical of the group – with one responding: "If someone proposed to me using a Taylor Swift song as inspiration, I would absolutely love it.
"This is not a great execution but sometimes it truly is the thought that counts."
For more wedding horror stories, people think this bride's messy up-do looks more like a giant bird's nest.
And this man proposed to his chicken-loving lady by shoving a ring on a NUGGET – and people are actually impressed.
Plus this guest has been slammed for wearing a "tacky" white beaded dress to her sister-in-law's wedding after she refused to be a bridesmaid.
