Everyone enjoys the sound of audience laughter. We know that laughing and being entertained by a comedic speaker is a wonderful experience. For that reason, many grooms want to add humor to their groom speech.
The fact is, whenever you know how, it isn’t really that hard to write and deliver a funny groom speech. The next few paragraphs can assist you to reach your goal and write a funny groom speech.
The first step you need to take is to focus on funny stories rather than witty one liners. This is important because jokes can seem cliche or “old” if you simply grab them off the Internet or a joke book. The material will not seem fresh and the audience will know that you did not actually write the joke. With this first step, avoiding offensive jokes is of paramount importance. A wedding is not the time to try out your Dane Cook style material.
Step number 2 would be to brainstorm for embarrassing stories about the bride. What you should avoid here are things that she is sensitive about. Maybe she was a pudgy teenager and she’s still sensitive about it. Again, tread lightly and focus on slightly amusing stories rather than the “laughing in the aisles” type of stories.
Your third and last step will be to think about a funny story about your relationship with your wife. The audience wants to hear an embarrassing story about your first date or the courtship process. Maybe you were so nervous to talk to your wife that you needed to down six shots of tequila. Maybe you were three hours late for the first date. This is important because anything that incorporates embarrassment and your relationship will work just fine. For this final step it will be important that you avoid sex related humor. There is a tendency for grooms to make self-deprecating comments about their sexual prowess and it’s not a good idea.
Carefully follow each one of these three simple and easy steps, for the reasons given. Make sure you steer clear of the pitfalls and potential problems mentioned. Carefully observe the suggestions above and you ought to have few or no problems.
Having carefully followed the suggestions given here you can expect to to write a funny groom speech rapidly and successfully. All that will be left for you to do will be to celebrate your success!
