With wedding season upon us, you could argue that there are aspects that should no longer be a part of the festivities. Traditions that are starting to edge towards cringey, right? Buzzfeed asked users on Reddit what they thought should be retired at weddings. Here are a few of the responses:

“Clinking silverware on glasses to get the couple to kiss.”

Yes to all of this! Now I know that it’s fun to hoot and holler when the happy couple smooches. But man, let the bride and groom eat in peace. Maybe even let them enjoy chat with each other and their wedding party.

“People proposing at other people’s wedding ceremonies or receptions.”

Don’t do this. Ever. You’re taking attention away from the couple. Again, DO NOT DO THIS EVER

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

Yeah. It’s done. Speaking on behalf on wedding DJ’s everywhere, they’d probably prefer to not. And might I add, most of the time, getting the “single ladies” out to the dance floor for the bouquet toss is like pulling teeth. I don’t think it’s gone smoothly ever
