Funny Groom Speeches always go down well with the audience so I can recommend adding a few funny jokes or stories to your Groom Speech. It’s your day as well and you don’t want the best mans speech to get all the laughs!
The best thing about telling a few funny stories is the laughter relaxes you and gives you confidence. I’m not a natural speaker and without the Wedding Speech Examples and funny stories I told I doubt I would have made it through the speech.
In all seriousness I think sprinkling your speech with a bit of humour helps you and the rest of the guests to relax and enjoy the day. I’m sure you would agree that any totally serious Wedding Speech seems to drag on and on.
Funny Grooms Speech – Keeping The Guests Involved
I found that adding some jokes and stories kept the audience involved and held their attention. However there are some rules you must follow as I found out when I read Groom Wedding Speeches before my big day.
First of all you still want your Grooms Speech to be heartfelt, so I think it is best to start with something serious and finish with something poignant. You can sprinkle the middle of the groom’s speech with some funny stories and jokes.
Be careful not to offend anyone, particularly the bride or any of her family, otherwise your Wedding Day will be memorable for all the wrong reasons!
Making Fun of Yourself
The funniest Groom Speeches are when the Groom also pokes fun at himself, this always goes down well with the guests. I also followed this technique and it stopped me getting too emotional on the day.
Remember to involve the audience, making sure you don’t fix your gaze in one place. It is always best to look around the room which will keep the guests focused on you and your speech.
When you are delivering your Grooms Speech make sure you deliver it in a friendly way. Remember this is not a work presentation so stay relaxed. A great tip I got from one of the Wedding Speech Examples I got was to talk to the audience as if I was talking to a friend at a bar. This helped relax me and I’m sure it will do the same for you.
One of the little jokes that went down well in my Groom Wedding Speech poked fun gently at the bride and got a good laugh. You can use it but remember to change the names!
“I must confess I tricked (bride’s name) in to marrying me… (long pause) I told her she was pregnant”.
This little joke was one that was non offensive and appealed to the whole audience, feel free to use it.
