I think it’s good, but I would think you should replace the wetting herself part witch something less mortifying. And then I would for sure toast.

Comedy in a speech can be a great tool, but only with the right group of people and the right speaker. I always say it’s better to be safe than sorry. Too much can go wrong when you try to be funny and plan to be funny, especially if you’re nervous or emotional. This is too planned. The opening bit hinges on them laughing for that whole next paragraph to make sense. And if the joke doesn’t sound natural (which most beginning of speech jokes don’t), it just sounds awkward and forced, no one laughs. Also, I would cut off the whole end bit with what his vows should have been. Just keep it short, sweet, and heartfelt. Everything else is really nice. 

I have a lot of jokes stories I could make share about vanessa and I– some of which aren’t that appropriate for her wedding day, like the time she wet herself at the bowling alley, and we had to dry her jeans under the electric hand dryer, but apparently I need to keep my speech short, so I thought I better spend my limited time making sure Van knows how honoured I am to be part of your life, and part of their wedding. I speak for myself and for (other BM’s) when I say that is has been a pleasure being a part of your wedding preparations and all 3 of us are impressed by how organised and stress-free you’ve been. 

I’m sure I’m not the only one in this room who is both happy and relieved to know that Vanessa will always be loved and cherished by you for the rest of your lives together. And to show our support, let us lift our glasses to Jacob and Vanessa (or other toast-inducing line).
