Newlyweds Emerson and John Schiavon are going viral on TikTok for their list of wedding must-haves. First on the list? No bridal party entrances.

"Controversial/different things we did at our wedding part 1," Emerson, who goes by @emersonschiavone_ on TikTok, captioned a video on her account where she explained that the groomsmen stood on her side while the bridesmaids were next to her husband.

In her first video of the series, the former bride also shared how instead of cutting the cake in front of their guests, the couple did it in private. "We only had our parents and grandparents watch us cake the cake...and no cake smashing," she wrote in the post.

During the second video of the series, the TikToker went on to explain how she and her John initiated a no-phones rule during the wedding ceremony and first dance. She said: "We hired photographers and a content creator for those reasons."

Emerson, who also noted that she didn't have a garter or bouquet toss, added in the third TikTok video how the couple also revoked wedding invitations. "I said what I said," she wrote alongside the post.

"If you did not RSVP on time, you were immediately taken off the list," she continued, adding how guests had three months to send back their reply.

In the fourth video, Emerson also revealed that she and her husband kicked two people out of the wedding. She said that the people were two random wedding crashers, but "(they) were immediately taken away."

However, that's not all. She said the couple's special day only included two speeches, noting, "Speeches can be annoying and way too long."

Another aspect of the wedding she claimed people found controversial was her invitations — which were made of glass and hand-delivered with champagne. "Stop telling brides it's a waste," she said. "An invitation makes the vibe of the wedding super clear."

Emerson, who also didn't let guests enter the wedding if they arrived late, wrote in the last TikTok video that she and John also didn't allow guests to make any music requests and that taking shots of alcohol was banned. And, no plus ones were allowed.

She said the event was "not prom, it's a wedding."
