Weddings are about love, hope and the future. Witnessing true love begin it's journey to forever is a privilege. One of the best parts of the show... I mean experience is the speeches by loved ones. It can be a soap opera waiting to happen. A room full of family, friends, long kept secrets and... an open bar?! What could possibly go wrong?

Redditor danner33 _asked around __What's the worst thing you've heard a speaker at a wedding say? \Brace yourself!_

ELIZABETH? THAT'S PRETTY.

Mother of the groom called the wife 'Elizabeth' in her speech. Elizabeth wasn't her name. Elizabeth was the name of the groom's best friend who happened to be an attractive woman. more attractive than the wife. Elizabeth is who the mother wanted her son to marry. Elizabeth was there, too.

R.I.P....

The only thing the best man said was "Well, we're all here today for one reason, a good woman died. May she Rest In Peace." About the groom's late (first) wife, who passed away over 10 years ago.

HEY THERE LITTLE BUDDY!

I got extremely smashed for my cousins wedding. When the guys came around with the camera, they filmed me and asked if I had anything to say to the bride or groom.

Well, my drunk butt starts going on about "I can't believe how much you've grown, I remember watching you grow up, and I'm so happy for you."

My cousin is 8 years older than me.

CAN YOU HEAR THE WORDS COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH?!

EAT SOME BREAD WITH THE OPEN BAR!

Best man waddles up to podium, visibly too drunk. He opens up his folder with his speech in it. Opens his mouth to say his first words and projectile vomits directly over the podium. He says into the mic, "Whoops that's not what I meant to say." Groomsmen drag him off and away.

MIRROR, MIRROR ON GHE WALL....

I was part of the catering crew at a wedding. The ceremony was on the beach and the reception was in the resort. When the bride and groom came in the entire wait staff kind of dropped their jaws because these kids couldn't have been more than like 18-20 years old. Everyone was super young. When the father of the bride made his speech he went on and on about how his daughter always gets what she wants. She had this wedding at the beach and they were going to have a second wedding back home in Texas. Then he goes on to describe every extracurricular activity she ever did and quit. "Cheerleader for 6 months, then she took up dancing for a few weeks. She got really into sewing for a while but quit when she joined Girl Scouts, which she left to chase her dream of being a dog walker..."

Basically his whole speech was calling her a spoiled brat who doesn't stick with anything. So the groom probably felt awesome about that.

TELL IT LIKE IT IS!

I was at a wedding where the grooms grandfather gave a speech. He stepped up to the mic and said, "(Groom), I hope you made the right choice." Then just walked off. Old people waste no time speaking their feelings. Everyone cracked up. The Bride was cool about it.

EVERYBODY... PRETEND YOU'VE GONE DEAF!

[rebelmouse-image 18979456 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Was at a friends wedding, one of my friends stands up to make a speech and it was pretty good until the last sentence when he said "who knows this could've been my wedding if I didn't mess things up with her" everyone was silent.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

"We all know she's been down this road before" from the brides brother at her second wedding.

FINE, YOU WIN... FOR NOW.

[rebelmouse-image 18979457 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad made a speech at my brother's wedding saying that if my brother didn't get to her first he would have married her. It was so awkward and so inappropriate.

THIS IS WHY YOU INVITE YOUR THERAPIST TO THE WEDDING.

[rebelmouse-image 18979458 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My brother-in-law's dad gave a toast where he went on an on about how his son had flunked out of college bc he couldn't get his life together and was pretty much a loser until he met my sister.

Like, its great that you're happy my sister came into his life, but don't tell a room full of people that you think your son is a loser. Not cool, man

LET'S HOLD OFF ON THE BABY SHOWER.

"Well this wedding was nice and all, but I'm sure all the married couples here know it's not a real marriage until you start having children!"

The bride was infertile.

FAMILY DINNERS WILL BE "FUNNY"... TO SAY THE LEAST.

[rebelmouse-image 18979460 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The groom was giving his speech, talking about the bride's father and how her father used to threaten to kill him with a shovel, he then proceed's to lift a gift wrapped shovel, and say 'so I bought you this as my gift to you' cue and angry voice from the family table yelling 'f' you! I'll kill you!'

PICK A NEUTRAL CORNER.

I didn't witness it myself but my father told me a story once of when he was at a wedding. The groom decided half way through the ceremony that he didn't want to get married. He was then attacked by the father and brother of the bride. After a brawl (and a few bloody noses) he changed his mind and they got married.

FLOWERS AREN'T FOREVER! JUST A FACT.

[rebelmouse-image 18979461 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My father, at my wedding: "Marriage is like a bouquet of flowers. Over times, it withers and you have to change it."

  1. He wanted to say that you need to take care of the bouquet and , obviously, but he mis-remembered the quote from another wedding
  2. My wife and I are separating, so I guess he was right :D

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

[rebelmouse-image 18979462 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The best man accidentally called the groom's wife by the groom's ex's name during his speech.

MAKE SURE YOUR PASTOR IS SOBER... ALWAYS.

[rebelmouse-image 18979463 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad did this, but worse. He's ordained, so he can marry people. Well he married my sister and during the ceremony called the groom by my sisters ex-boyfriends name THREE times. Well eventually when that ex got out of jail my sister divorced her husband and went back to him. So, I guess my dad can kind of predict the future?

YOU BE YOU! PAST AND ALL!

My buddy's best man distributed pictures of my buddy stark naked in a fountain in Spain, while telling the story about it and about how my buddy was subsequently arrested. My buddy's wife's extremely conservative family was not impressed.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
