    Nope.  The only time I've ever seen it talked about is here.  I had never heard of it before.

    I've heard about it, but think it's horribly cheesy.

    I've seen it on movies, but that's about it.  I always thought clinking the glasses was for a toast.

    I thought it was so awkward! I would never agree to that!

    I've read it online, but have never been to a wedding with it.

    I have been to one wedding and also heard of bells being rung ( like little favor bells put on tables...) to get the couple to kiss; I think that's really cheesy too.

    Weddings in general are cheesy. HAHA!
    I've heard of the bells.  But my thoughts are, who wants an entire reception full of bell noises?  I foresee a headache.

    As for clinking glasses. lets save that for the toasts.

    It is very popular in NE or maybe the midwest.  Almost every wedding I have been to had it.  It gets realllllly annoying and typically after about 5-7 times the couple igores it then the guests stop.  For the most part I noticed it was younger and older guests that tend to enjoy it.  I have even seen a glass broke from it.  We will not be doing it.

    yes; our friend who married in Abilene did that at their wedding. we're hoping that he doesn't encourage people to do that at our wedding, but if he does we're making a list of couples to kiss instead of us kissing.

    This is actually a first for me hearing about this. I wouldn't do it at my wedding...except clinking glasses for a toast and thats all.

    HA HA I've heard of it and seen it done at weddings.  I think it's cute, but cheesy!  My FI would be red in the face the whole night if people tried to do this to us!  So hopefully it won't happen.

    I've heard of bells ringing or clinking silverware on a glass, and I've attended a few that observed the 'rule'. It is extremely annoying. I love kissing my FI, but if I have to do so 20 times while I'm trying to eat my food at my own wedding I might go bridezilla on someone.

    LOL Courtski... yeah any more than one time and that would get annoying really fast. I've never seen it done either! Probably for good reason.

    I recall going to one wedding as a child where this was done. We had plastic glasses at our wedding, so it didn't happen :)

    This happened at every wedding I went to growing up (in the midwest). My cousins (who still live there) have already warned me that they're going to do it to me all night. I tried to tell them it's not commonly done here, but they so far are having none of it.

    At several weddings I went to, it was a little spoon with hershey's kisses attached. They kind of rattled when you shook them. It was a little less grating than the clinking sound.

    I've never heard of this, but it sounds like it could be very annoying.

    I've seen this at every wedding I've been too. I didn't find it annoying. I think it might also be because we don't kiss at the wedding itself. I think there has only been one couple who actually did kiss during the clinking. Everyone else did a cheek kiss or ignored it and played it off. My brother-in-law and sister put up their napkin and kissed behind it.
