Typically, a wedding is a very touching, heartwarming event in which families come together to support and celebrate the love of two individuals, yet for some weddings it may be appropriate to tell jokes during toasts.

Typically,Guest Posting a wedding is a very touching, heartwarming event in which families come together to support and celebrate the love of two individuals, yet for some weddings it may be appropriate to tell jokes during toasts. The important part is deciding if the wedding in question is in fact the right environment for wedding speech jokes. 

Henny Youngman once said, "The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret."  Or perhaps when the best man asks the groom if he has any regrets, and the best man responds: "If I could do the whole thing over again, I would do the whole thing over again."  Perhaps when the groom is attending his third wedding, and he has previously shunned statements from his soon to be wife's friends that he's bad at marriage, then the best man can step in and say, "What do you mean? He's great at marriage! This is his third, how many have you had?" Socrates once said, "By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher." When asked what characteristics draw the groom to want to marry his bride, the groom responds: "Well, she may not be able to cook or look beautiful, but she sure is dull."  Then, the successful older gentleman in the ceremony can stand up and say, "My wife and I have been happily married for five years, and we've been married for almost thirty now." 

Remember, sometimes jokes can really lighten-up an otherwise stressful wedding situation. So, it's up to you to determine if and when wedding speech jokes fit into the ceremony. Just ask the bride and groom what the proper etiquette is and if it's okay, then unleash something witty, break the tension, and most of all, come from the heart.
