Question by lemonheads: Best Man Speech Ice Breaker Suggestions?
1. I am the FEMALE Best Man for my friend’s wedding next month. I need to make two speeches because they are having two ceremonies. I just need a good ice breaker that will get a good laugh and not be lewd since the first ceremony is a religious one.
2. At the religious ceremony, it is more catered towards the groom’s family so I wanted to mentioned someone on that side who had passed away. The groom’s mother died a year ago and I wanted to mention her in the speech, like saying how she would be proud of her son and stuff like that and compare her a little bit to the bride. Would that be appropriate or no? I used to go over to their house a lot when I was younger so I’ve spoken to his mom a few times but I wasn’t very close with her. She was always a nice lady.

“We all love (groom’s name) and know that he set’s very high standards for himself in everthing he does, so it came as NO surprise when he asked (bride’s name) to marry him. Since (bride’s name) also has very high standards, it came as a HUGE surprise that she accepted”
I usually see references to past family members as opart of teh invocation/prayer before the meal, when you say something about “all of those who are no longer with us who loved “bride name” and “groom name.” That way no one is offended that you may have left someone out.
