Funny Wedding Toasts & Speech Tips – Add Some Humor To Your Speech!

So you’re going to a wedding and you have to make a speech but you sure as hell know that you don’t want it to be a boring old speech like you know every one else’s is going to be like. You want people to remember your speech and rightly so. It doesn’t matter if you’re the father of the bride, the best man or just a friend wishing the lucky couple well, making a memorable speech and making people laugh will add something to their wedding day.

Funny and vulgar are two different things. A lot of people, especially men tend to think that to be funny you have to be vulgar and rude and embarrass the newly weds, this is not true.

Profanities will upset people, and if you think talking about ex partners of the couple to be wed is funny and horror stories from the past that were hurtful are funny, think again.

A truly funny wedding speech is a hard art to master but in this article I’m going to give you some tips so you can write a funny wedding speech no one will forget in a hurry, so let’s get started!

Tip 1  Know your audience

This is really important. A joke that is funny to a 20 year old person might not be funny to a 70 year old person. Also, if you know there are people in the audience (and the bride and groom) who don’t like profanity or sexual talk, don’t say anything to offend them! You don’t want to be known as the man who insulted half the wedding party.

Know your audience, think about who is coming and what sensitivities they have.

Tip 2  Stay away from inside jokes

Just because you and the groom think a joke is funny, doesn’t mean every one else will get it. Try and stick with jokes that every one will understand and that they find some what funny. There is nothing worse then half your audience laughing and the other half thinking you’re weird.

Tip 3  Re-live a funny moment

Re-living a funny moment that you had with either the bride or groom is a good idea as long as it will be funny to every one. Again, no inside jokes like “Hey Phil, remember that time when you know what happened to you know who?” That won’t make sense to most people. Re-live a funny moment in both of your lives that every one will find amusing.

Tip 4  Use a funny one liner

A funny one liner joke is a good way to start a speech or end it. Again, knowing your audience is important but here are two of my favorite one liner jokes for wedding speeches.

“To our wives and lovers, let’s hope they never meet”

“It’s not too late to leave now (insert brides name) the gifts are refundable!”

Marriage is when a man and woman become as one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.

Behind every successful man, there is a woman – And behind every unsuccessful man, there are two!
