Twitter users are making up their own funny weddings rules and traditions ahead of the royal wedding this weekend.

On Sunday, the account @HastagRoundup and its spinoff @HashFakeFacts challenged social media users to tweet their own ‘fake wedding facts’ ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s ‘I do’s’ — and hundreds have obliged with their own made-up twists on nuptials. 

While some tweets are sarcastic, others imagine weddings gone wild in which guests throw baked potatoes instead of rice, umpires conduct the ceremonies, and blinged-out bears proceed the bride down the aisle.
