    I freaking love that part of weddings, I hope somebody does it at mine! I guess people find it annoying if people do it too often? I’ve never seen it done more than once or twice in the night though. I love any excuse for kisses.

    I love that part of weddings as well, but we are doing a Christmas theme so we are making keychains as favors that have jingle bells on them.  They will be asked to ring the bells for us to kiss instead of clinking the glasses.

    Ya I just think it is annoying if people do it too often. I have seen weddings where the bride and groom can’t even manage to finish their dinner before it is cold because people are clinking their glasses every five minutes. Like once or twice over the course of the night is cute but it can get really overboard sometimes.

    I was at a wedding once where an overly ethusiastic (aka drunk) guest clinked a little too hard.  There was a lot of broken glass and blood involved.  Not what you want at a wedding.  So I have a bad association with the tradition.

    I do like the general idea though, I like when couples have alternative like the jingle bells a PP mentioned.  At one wedding the DJ announced that if someone wants the couple to kiss then their group needs to stand up a sing a song.  A whole table would stand up and start sining a cheesey love song (one group did You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ just like in Top Gun), it was really silly and fun.  And since it invovled more effort it kept it from happening too much.

    My Darling Husband really hated when people clinked glasses at ours. We had plenty of PDA at our wedding obviously, so it’s not that he minded smooching in front of people, but something about having to stop what he was doing because someone was commanding him to kiss bugged him.

    At one point, someone clinked, and he had a mouth full of food, so he had to chew really quick. After that, he started looking really grumpy at clinkers, and they eventually stopped.

    Eh I think it’s cute if they do it every once in a while, not like every 5 seconds.

    I hate it.  I have a schedule and a plan for how the night will go.  I don’t need people clinking their glasses and demanding a kiss…
