I feel like everyone has strong opinions about weddings, wedding etiquette, and just generally everything wedding-related. So when Reddit user u/fisch09 and @HashtagRoundup asked what they wished everyone would stop doing at weddings, people had some answers readdddy!

Here's what people — from what the brides, grooms, and more — should stop doing:

1."Clinking silverware on glasses to get the couple to kiss."


2."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."


3."The cool/cute/creative/generally unusual first dance. It's lame ass. No one but the couple is entertained by it."

4."Playing Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies' when it's time for the bouquet toss. Cliché."


5."The chicken dance at weddings."

6."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."

7."Over-drinking. Unfortunately, I've seen too many mass brawls at the end because of drinking and drama."

8."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."


9."When the mother of the groom is drunk and makes a toast just to insult the bride."


10."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!"
