Typically Germans don't have a best man or maid of honor; instead, two family members or friends serve at witnesses to the marriage.

When is it traditionally permitted for a woman to propose marriage to man?

This question is quite impertinent. I will do the best I can in answering this. Tradition is tradition. A woman proposing to a man is not tradition. That does not mean is not acceptable and that it is not done. Now as far as what is permitted as far a proposal has no jurisdiction to that type of event. No one needs a permission to propose to anyone. If you uncomfortable with all of this, you as well as anyone has the right to refuse.
