Here's what people — from what the brides, grooms, and more — should stop doing:
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."
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."
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!"
12. "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."
13. "Don't bring your awful kids when you have been specifically asked not to or they invite says no children."
14. "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."
17. "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."
