Unforgettable Jokes For Wedding Reception Speech

You might hear the ghost of Jack Parr chortling, guffawing if you use these one-liners in your wedding day speech. These brief pieces of comedy are time-honored ways to liven up a speech. Groomed for appropriateness, you can safely include one or more of these in your speech or toast.

1. Marriage is a thing, which puts a ring on a woman’s finger and two under the man’s eyes.

2. Marriage is a 3-ring circus: engagement ring, wedding rink and suffering.

3. Marriage is not a word, it’s a sentence…a life sentence.

4. Never marry a man for money. You will have to earn every penny.

5. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener

6. A man said his credit card was stolen but he decided not to report it because the thief was spending less than his wife did.

8. I haven’t spoken to my wife in 18 months…I don’t like to interrupt her.

9. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

As you reviewed these, you probably had a stronger reaction to some than others. It is best to chose one or two, rather than try and deliver a stand-up comedy on the day of the wedding. Even just using one as opening break-the-ice humor might make your speech successful. Hearing the laughter from the guests may dissolve your jitters and improve your speech from the get-go.

It is true that humor relaxes people – both you and many of the wedding guests. You’ll sense their approval by hearing their enjoyment.. And who doesn’t like to put a smile on the faces of the bride and groom on their special day. It is a happy occasion where you want to see a room full of smiling people.

These jokes are inoffensive and general enough be off-putting, but you should still take care to end your speech on a note of sincerity and with an expression of sincere good wishes for the new husband and wife.
