Clinking for Kisses? Keep or Cancel?

Clink Clink!! 馃 It's time to smooch again, as demanded by your guests! Are you saying keep to this tradition because you'll take any opportunity to lay another kiss on your new spouse's lips? 馃槝 Or do you want to cancel the incessant kissing-on-command clinking demands?

Would you keep or cancel clinking for kisses?

    Cancel. Personally find it awkward and tacky!

    Cancel - Unpopular opinion here but I hate the sound of clinking glasses, and we're not dogs that we do PDA at the sound of the glass.

    We are having kissing bells instead

    I haven't thought of this yet. Might keep it.

    Cancel...kinda? We are not allowed to have clinking at our venue, so we came up with something else: We got a big foam die and people have to come up and roll it. If it's even, we kiss, but if it's odd, the person who rolled it has to kiss someone!

    We cancelled this. We were fine with nothing but our MC announced if they wanted us to kiss, they would have to come show us and we would imitate it. Only one couple (my parents!) did it

    Cancel. We will have a giant dice, when rolled the number it lands on is a different task. Ex: 6= couples kiss 4= person sings a song acapella 1= i think is they have to kiss someone. Fun things like that.

    Cancel. We didn't do it for a variety of reasons (one being our venue not allowing clinking of anything lol). Our tables just had to stand up and clap for us to kiss.

    Cancel. The constant clinking would drive me insane.

    Cancel!!! I can't deal with people clinking glasses all night so we're not doing that

    Cancel! I can imagine our MOH and BM (her husband) getting tipsy and clinking every 2 seconds haha.

    Cancel!!! I hate the clinking of glasses I was very happy when venues put a stop to this tradition. Also I am not one for the big display of PDA it makes me feel awkward having people watch me kiss. I keep trying to convince my fianc茅 that at the ceremony we can do our first kiss as husband and wife after we walk back down the aisle. Everyone will be too busy trying to leave their seats to go to cocktail hour that it won鈥檛 be all eyes on us! 馃槅

    For the clinking specifically, Cancel. my FH and I definitely want to have some sort of make them kiss game, but it's not going to be anything super noisy or annoying. We are thinking of getting a giant D20 and have people roll for it or what they would have to do to get us to kiss.

    Cancel-I think most venues don't even allow this anymore.

    Our venue didn't allow clinking of glasses, which we were very happy about. So instead, we had a putting green set up in front of the head table. Guests had to drain a putt for us to kiss. It was really fun to see everyone have a go at it.
