I just recently attended a wedding, and in my opinion, it's pretty wild how traditional weddings still are to this day. A lot of the formalities could be considered outdated and some things should probably just not exist anymore. (Why is the garter belt tradition still a thing???)
3."The father-daughter dance. I know people love it and sometimes it’s sweet but when the song is along the lines of 'You were my girl and now you’re his' — it’s just so cringe. I have to turn away."
4."I recently went to a wedding where the bride and groom had signs and décor with 'It was always you' everywhere. When the bride and groom met, the bride was one of three women the groom was dating. They spent a decade cheating on all of their partners to be with each other before they finally got together. But I guess that was all ok because 'It was always you.' What a weird thing to highlight with your decorations at your wedding."
8."Those women that try way too hard to catch the bouquet that the bride throws. Some literally push others over. I feel embarrassed just watching them."
9."Moments where one new spouse humiliates the other. I'm in the industry and I've seen examples. Once, the bride decided to prank the groom during the garter toss. They blindfolded him and brought out a groomsman in a wedding dress, who had also shaved his legs for the occasion and had the groom go after the garter the way one usually does. He retrieves the garter which, yes, was all the way up on the thigh, with his teeth, stands, and pulls his blindfold off, only to find 200 people laughing at him. He was livid for the rest of the night. Don't humiliate your spouse on the day you're supposed to be celebrating how much you love one another."
10."Any wedding where the bridesmaids and groomsmen have been ordered to perform a choreographed dance at any point during the festivities — whether that's dancing up the aisle or a full-on dance number during the reception."
11."Smashing the slice of cake in each other's face."
14."When the bride is walking down the aisle and everyone is taking pictures with their cellphones. That couple will forever have everyone looking through their phones in the photographs from the professional photographer that cost thousands. A special iconic moment marred with faces in screens. But everyone wants a low-quality image from a bad angle immediately, instead of having the forethought to ask the couple at a later date for a copy of a professional one. It's selfish and ignorant."
15."When there are multiple unruly kids running around and/or screaming spoiling the first dance or any special moments for the couple."
17."When people write their own vows but they don’t actually promise anything. They just ramble for a few minutes about how much they love each other and how perfect they are. The whole point of wedding vows is to make commitments."
18."The speeches usually make me want to quietly leave as quickly as possible."
