People Share Stuff You Shouldn’t Do At Weddings And I’m Not Sure I Agree With Everything (20 Posts)

Everything about weddings makes everyone absolutely insane. From the etiquette to the “my way or gtfo” crap that has taken over the marital couple, people have forgotten that the day is about celebrating a union with friends and family.

See? Even I have some strong feelings about what weddings should be!

And so does the internet. u/fisch09 and @HashtagRoundup recently asked what people should stop doing at weddings. Here we go!

1. Clinking

“Clinking silverware on glasses to get the couple to kiss.” —u/BlueLilahLarry

2. Stupid speeches

“Ugh, the tired, boring lame best man and maid of honor speeches. ‘We’ve known each other since grade school when we were playing cars/barbies. Now this great person has come to take you away from me. But I can see from how you look at each other, this is meant to be.’ Even worse is when they try to insert some inside joke that only they’ll understand in a room fucking full of people there to celebrate together.” —u/1900grs

3. Nobody cares

“The cool/cute/creative/generally unusual first dance. It’s lame ass. No one but the couple is entertained by it.” —deleted

4. Okay, guys

“Playing Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ when it’s time for the bouquet toss. Cliché.” —deleted

5. This one’s for the olds

“The chicken dance at weddings.” —u/pickledpunk21

6. Do not do this

“A proposal. I’ve heard about people proposing at other people’s wedding ceremonies or receptions. If you don’t have permission from the bride/groom, DON’T DO IT because it’s THEIR day, not yours.” —Neurotic Workaholic

7. Put the booze down

“Over-drinking. Unfortunately, I’ve seen too many mass brawls at the end because of drinking and drama.” —nollaig kelly

8. This is A+ true

“Choreographed, cutesy skits, flash mobs, dance routines, etc. I’d nope out of wedding party that wanted that from me. And they’re boring to watch as a guest, and usually excruciating.” —baddaughter

9. Insulting toasts

“When the mother of the groom is drunk and makes a toast just to insult the bride.” —sheenadawnn

10. Be quiet

“People who call out during the speeches. Drives me bonkers! If you were that funny, they would have asked you to speak. They clearly didn’t, so shut your yap!” —jillians459eaed80

11. WHY

“Announcing your pregnancy at someone ELSE’s wedding. It’s not your moment!” —zeroeffs

12. Label your food

“Don’t serve food that’s on a buffet that isn’t labeled! Almost ate something that I was allergic to at a wedding because it wasn’t labeled and the food was served in a room that was dimly lit.” —gracelee32

13. Kids

“Don’t bring your awful kids when you have been specifically asked not to or they invite says no children.” —rickm16

14. Don’t steal the photographer

“Don’t come over and take your own pics while the designated photographer is doing the staged shots. I have too many pics of my wedding party all looking in different directions. Once my photographer realized what was going on he asked everyone not getting their pictures by him taken to leave.” —paulau4fbdfb725

15. Smashing cake

“Stop the smashing of the cake in each other’s faces. JUST. STOP. IT.” —c49a679543

16. Be kind

“Don’t be an ass to the waitstaff/bartender. Especially don’t yell at them because the bar isn’t serving the ‘right’ type of alcohol. If you have an issue with that, talk to the bride and groom. Sincerely, A Former Events Server.” —emma1515

17. This is … you all know this, right?

“Someone shouldn’t wear white if you do not ask them first.” —brownadisyn
