How to write a humorous wedding speech – tips from a popular venue near Fourways

These tips from a wedding venue near Fourways will provide some helpful guidelines when it comes to funny wedding speeches.

Who gives wedding readings or speeches?

At weddings, there is usually a specific group of people who are expected to give speeches on the special day. Of course, it is not a fixed rule as to who should speak and when  and is essentially the bridal couple’s choice but here is a guideline:

  • The groom
  • The head bridesmaid or Maid of Honour
  • The Best Man
  • The Master of Ceremonies
  • The father of the bride
  • Close friends of the couple

Traditionally, the bride, the groom’s father and the couple’s mothers don’t have to speak, but these days anything goes and the more the merrier! If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas for your speech or wondering if your sense of humour will come over properly, contact the other speakers and see what they think – you could all use each other as the perfect sounding boards!

Ideas for a humorous toast or wedding speech

  • Bring up a funny story of the couple’s past and relate it to their relationship. For example, if the couple’s car broke down once, you can compare it to the ups and downs of a marriage and that – with love – this couple could get through any trial.
  • Children’s view of a marriage is always funny – if there are children at the wedding, find out how they view a marriage and incorporate it into your speech.
  • Coordinate with a close family member to create a funny example why he or she thinks the couple is perfect. Take funny stories from the bride and groom’s  youth and relate them to one another to show how perfect they are for each other.
