Humorous Wedding Speech for a Groom Who has Moved Frequently


Firstly, on behalf of the bride and groom, let me thank you all for attending this wedding celebration which I'm sure you will agree has been organised magnificently well - and I bet the wedding album has better coverage than the (insert latest tablod scandal here)!

Laughter

Yesterday evening I was advised of my official wedding day duties and responsibilities. I was advised that, when greeting guests, to pay special attention to unaccompanied women. I'm way ahead on that one, Joseph's already given me a list of names with photos.

On the subject of guests, in the run-up to today, Joseph and Barbara had a bit of an issue with the seating plan, because they really couldn't decide who to put where. So I offered to step in and help work something out. What we finally decided was to use the wedding gift list, and put those who bought the biggest items nearest the front, and work it back from there. So if they can hear me at the back there, thank you to Tony and Sue for the oven glove.

And if you look around this room you'll see there are guests here from all around the world. Joseph has made a lot of international friends, and presumably they are all now part of his pyramid scheme.

Nobody travels as widely as this man, Paris, New York, Moscow. In fact, last Friday when I went to meet him at the airport, three planes landed and Joseph got off all of them. In the twelve years we've been friends he has lived in so many places, and moved more times than everyone I know - put together. I now always give his cell phone a ring before I drop by to visit, to check that he hasn't moved again. In fact, it started to get so complicated, at one point I considered studying for a University Geography degree to keep up with him. But they say that every busy man should have a wife. Then he won't have to waste time in making up his own mind.

Now, at some point I'm supposed to say what an honour it is being Joseph's best man. And when I say best man, I really mean best man. Just have a look at table four over there and you'll see there really was very little competition - that just looks like the bar scene from Star Wars.

Thoughtful Wedding Speech by the Groom

- Thoughtful Wedding Speech by the Groom Ladies and gentlemen: I would like to thank the previous speaker for those sincere words and to the bride's parents for the love that they have both shown me, not only in preparation for today, but from the first moment that we met some two and a half years ago. I dont know who was more surprised that first night when my future wife brought me home without warning, when they were sitting there all ready for bed in their satin bath robes and her dad in his Snoopy slippers....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches]

Humorous Wedding Speech by the Groom

- Humorous Wedding Speech by the Groom The groom has used the wedding date as a source for funny lines, comparing their marriage with celebrity couples for comic effect. While preparing this speech I thought it would be interesting to see if any celebrity couples had been married on the same day as us. Paul Simon and Carrie Fisher wed in 1983...and split up after 9 months. Oh dear. Also, Madonna married Sean Penn on this day in 1985; and we all know the outcome of that. Unlike the latter, while Lisa is "Like A Virgin," I plan to "Cherish" her forever and I am not afraid to 'Justify My Love." There's always the "Hanky Panky" to look forward to....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches]

Humorous Wedding Speech by the Groom

- Humorous Wedding Speech by the Groom It is apparent from the opening few lines of this speech that the groom has an excellent relationship with the bride's parents and this can be really useful, not just in the future, for obvious reasons, but it can also make the speech more humorous. This speech is also a good example of using events in history that happened on the same date as a source of humor. Thank you for those lovely words. I'd like to remind you that you're not so much losing a daughter, but regaining three closets (wardrobes)....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches]

I would sincerely like to thank you for welcoming me into your family, for bringing up such a lovely daughter, and for giving me your blessing to marry her. In addition. due to the number of phone calls between my wife and her mom, the phone company would also like to thank you both. On this date in history in 1889 the Boer War ended, and maybe after my speech you'll think it's started again, although this day will go down in history as the day you all heard the best ever speech....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches]

Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom

- Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom Well , what can I say, Thankyou for those kind words Alan and I hope $20 was enough. I recently read somewhere that a survey had been conducted of things that people fear most, and top of the list above things like spiders and heights, was the fear of standing up and making a speech in public. I'm no different, suffice to say that this isn't the first time today I've risen from a warm seat with a piece of paper in my hand.

This is the very first and very last time that my wife is going to let me speak on behalf of both of us. Today, so far has been a day beyond my wildest dreams.

They are, of course, Joseph's old rugby mates. Make sure that you behave yourselves lads - no taking down of trousers and doing the victory willy dance! Joseph has in fact made a recent comeback for the team and it's proved a great way for him to meet new people: paramedics, nurses and chiropractors are just some of the friends he's made. But since Joseph's return the team's been compared to an old fashioned bra, no cups and poor support. There have also been complaints that his tackle is no longer hard enough - something Barbara might want to be concerned about.

Joseph has received a lot of praise today from various people here, saying that he'll make a good a husband to Barbara, that sort of stuff. Well Joseph, to truly be a good husband you have to acknowledge your mistakes. After two years of marriage I can honestly say I've made only one mistake. And that was putting my wife on a pedestal. Now she can't reach the floor and clean it.

Before I toast the happy couple, I've just got a few last things to say. Joseph, you have pulled a blinder in marrying Barbara. You have found someone who is beautiful, well-mannered, charming, smart, funny, loving and caring and a match for you any day of the week. I wish you and Barbara all the very best for the future.

Ladies and gentlemen, to the bride and groom.
