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.”

—U / BlueLilahLarry

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. “

—U / 1900grs

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