Internet backs strict list of bride marriage rules that include ‘no children’

A woman’s list of rules for her upcoming wedding has been praised for doing away with tradition and taking a hardline stance on the inclusion of children.

In a video that has been viewed 1.6 million times on TikTok, a woman posted as cruzjasmine824 shared her “very real marriage rules” ahead of her nuptials later this year. She also didn’t throw a punch when it came to the demands of her big day, with the very first rule on her list being “no children.”

“I don’t want kids running around unsupervised without their parents watching, absolutely not going to happen,” she says on the video, the first part of which can be viewed. here.

She notes that there are “a few exceptions” which include some of her siblings under the age of 15 and “strangers” who couldn’t find babysitters for the whole weekend. “They have to watch them,” she warned.

No one should wear white, with bridesmaids having “specific instructions” to dump “a whole bottle of red wine” on anyone they see dressed in white on their wedding day.

As for the bridesmaids themselves, she said they could choose “any outfit they wanted to wear” as long as she saw it first and they all wore the same color.

She also objects to the idea of ​​wearing a garter. For the uninitiated: the wedding garter is a piece of bridal lingerie. It is traditional, during the reception, to remove this object, which is worn under the wedding dress, and throw it into the crowd.

“It’s disgusting,” she explained on the video. “I already have to kiss a man in public in front of all these people. Now you want him to get under my dress and pretend to…no.” All of her bridesmaids will be part of the LGBTQ+ community while her mother was given “full creative freedom” on everything on the big day itself.

She also wants her guests to make the most of the free bar and “get high”, though she’s keen to stress that no one should go home drunk. “We pay so much money for an open bar, please enjoy it,” she said. “I want you to be drunk.” The second part of the video can be viewed here.

Sellers will be treated as guests with breaks while large announcements are strictly prohibited. “If you’re pregnant, keep it to yourself. If you want to propose, keep it to yourself,” she warned. “Don’t come on my wedding day distracting me and my man.”

Although the list may cut some traditions, it has received near-universal approval on social media, with users flocking to praise the woman’s plans for her big day.

The no-kids rule has proven particularly popular. “100% agree with the kids thing,” its_neon_z wrote. “If they’re under 13, they won’t care what’s going on and will be bored.” Sxwqsd added, “Kids don’t even like weddings. I don’t know why people get mad when kids aren’t allowed.”

However, Sophia Bounatsos warned that any “exception” would allow people to “break the rules” when it comes to bringing children. “People can find babysitters months in advance, they just refuse,” they warned.

Others felt that the decision to skip the Garter tradition was also a good decision. 98jreed said, “I love the no garter rule, it’s a really disturbing thing to do in front of the family.” Jack Birth agreed: “The garter is so weird, they made me get up and try to grab it at my sister’s wedding, like I wanna do that?”

Mady Britton applauded the decision to let bridesmaids wear whatever they wanted. “I feel like they know their bodies better and it’s also important to have confidence in them,” she commented. Riley P confirmed, “Bridesmaids choosing their outfits are actually smart.”

Newsweek has contacted cruzjasmine824 for comment.

According to Wedding Ideas, research has shown that modern brides are increasingly opposed to many centuries-old traditions associated with weddings.

For example, 33% of respondents did not want to be “given away” by their dad walking them down the aisle while 29% said they no longer felt pressured to wear white to their nuptials.

The dangers of including a child in your wedding were highlighted by a recent viral video showing a toddler inadvertently standing on the wedding veil.

Elsewhere, a woman about to be married has drawn internet ire after she blasted her sister for bringing her 19-year-old daughter to a childless marriage.
