Funny Wedding Speeches - Three Crucial Tips For Successful Funny Wedding Speeches


Visitors: 262

Thinking about Funny Wedding Speeches? Serious wedding toasts are great, especially getting those tears on camera, but sometimes it's better to make the crowd laugh. Funny wedding speeches can provide some much needed relief from what is naturally an emotional day. However not all humor is appropriate and just because you think you're funny doesn't necessarily mean that you actually are. Here are some tips for giving a great comic wedding speech.

1. Consider your audience:

Who will be there? Will there be small children present that you shouldn't swear in front of? Is the family very religious and might take offense to certain jokes? Do the bride and groom have a good sense of humor? Think about who all the guests will be before you start working on your speech. Keep it age and interest appropriate. If the family is over the top and out of the box a roast may be in order but if not keep it on the safe side.

2. Think of funny stories:

Humorous stories involving the bride and groom are always good as long as they are clean. No sex, drugs or illegal activity stories unless they are widely known by the entire family and close friends. Otherwise this could be a recipe for disaster. If you reveal an embarrassing secret that the parents, siblings or grandparents didn't know about you are stirring up the pot. You are creating a potentially uncomfortable situation for both the bride/groom and family as well as for yourself and everyone else.

3. Tell jokes:

Write a couple jokes about the family, bride and groom, or the wedding and planning process. Make sure it is all “light" humor. Don't let anything be serious or presented in a serious tone. Avoid anything potentially embarrassing. Again, keep it clean, short and sweet. Remember, if you cannot tell it to your mother or granny, it is not suitable. Do not offend any of the bridal party or the guests at all costs.

Heed these warnings and you will be able to give funny wedding speeches that will have the guests rolling without offending anyone.
