    Ditch. This makes both FH and I uncomfortable so we decided not to

    We decided to ditch this after some consideration. My dress isn't ideal for it anyway.

    I always thought of this as something fun. But now that it's my wedding, I'm just not sure.

    Definitely ditching this. I couldn't imagine this happening at our wedding. It makes both fiance and I very uncomfortable.

    Ditch. It's tacky and degrading.

    Ditch! I'm not a fan of it. Plus it disrupts the flow of the night.

    We kept it, it was not really awkward at all for us or our crowd.
