Since the internet is littered with wedding horror story portraits of brides and grooms gone mad, it's good to remember that most weddings are just fun parties celebrating love. There's food, there's (often) booze, there are pretty people wearing pretty outfits, and there are plentiful toasts from the married couple's closest pals.
While wedding speeches run the gamut from saccharine Hallmark-style gushing to awkward jokes couched in faux-hostility, the best ones manage to hit fresh funny notes the crowd won't soon forget.
The best man at my cousin's wedding was finishing up his speech, and stated "I'm sure they will enjoy their Honeymoon in Wales!" They were not going to Wales, so everyone looked at him confused and he turns to the groom and goes "What? You said you were going to banger' for a few weeks."
"My wife's best friend/maid of honor called me the wrong name in her toast...the name she called out...my wife's ex-boyfriend.
I laughed it off at the time...but to be honest I was pretty humiliated."
