Things to consider

What kind of school did bride/groom attend

Did either of them go to a school which was very posh or very rough.

Most posh school tend to have mottos so it’s always worth doing a bit of research to see what the motto is. You can then contrast this with an imaginary motto for a rough school.  i.e Eton – motto.

Did either bride or groom do very well at school i.e. academic high flyers.

What were their strengths and weaknesses at school

Did they like doing sport at school, were either of them any good at sport at school,

Did either of them keep trying to skive off from sports lessons.


Did bride and groom go to college or university?

What subjects did they study at university?

Some subjects offer more scope for humour than others. i.e. subjects considered as Micky mouse subjects are easier to make fun of than subjects like medicine and engineering. 

Equally there are lots of stereo-types about what a science graduate might be like etc. These stereo-types can provide you with a lot of material especially if the couple don’t match up to the stereotype. i.e. ‘Unlike most engineering graduates – (groom) has actually got a good sense of humour.

Did the couple meet at university?

Did any famous people study at the same university as bride and groom

What did they do at university apart from study i.e. were they in any clubs or societies.

Are there any funny stories relating to their time at university?



When a pupil has the letters G & T after his or her name it usually means they are considered to be gifted and talented and have a lot of potential. In the case of (groom) teacher wrote G&T after his name because she knew that she would need a large G&T after teaching him all day.
