How the couple first met


It is always worth including something in the speech about ho the couple first met because some people at the reception won’t know. At any reception there will be mix of people including friends and relatives of the happy couple as well as work colleagues and friends and neighbours of the bride and grooms parents. Because of this diverse mix there are bound to be people attending the wedding who don’t know how the couple met.

If the couple met via work there is a lot of scope for gags about mixing work and pleasure etc. Or jokes along the lines of the groom bringing his work home with him.

If groom is higher up the ladder than bride at work potential for jokes about him being the boss at work but her wearing the trousers at home.

If a couple met in a pub one route to take with the gags is to say imply they were both drunk when they met.  Could the groom remember the brides name the next morning? Who phoned or text first to arrange the second date?

Did the couple actually hit it off when they first met or was the romance a bit of a slow burner? You could speculate about why it took so long to get together.

How did the groom describe the bride to you after the first time they met. Did her view her as being marriage material from the off? Did the groom keep her hidden away for a while before introducing her to his mates.

Was the groom looking for a potential wife when the couple first met or did he have a reputation for short flings.

Did the groom consult you about his new girlfriend asking for advice? If so what advice did you give him and did he heed your advice?

If the couple met quite a while back you could do gags about what was happening when they first met e.g. Petrol was only ______ a litre, beer was _____ a pint.

What record was at the top of the chart?

Why has t taken them so long to finally tie the knot?

Were bride and groom planning to lose weight before getting married?

Did it just take along time to find the venue or the right dress?

Did the couple need a lot of time to save up?

Were they just weighting to find the perfect best man?
