WTH??!! LOL I’ve heard of this.  But seriously I couldn’t pull of a 5 minute speech, let alone an hour long speech.  I’m dumbfounded!

When I have to give a class presentation for 20 mins…I usually throw in a 3-5 minute youtube video to use up my time LOL.

~4.5 HOURS of speeches?!?

Please tell me they at least let you guys eat while they talked…. How do they even manage to go on for so long?

@icetea:  I’m with you… a 20 minute presentation is stretching my abilites to find stuffs to say…

OMG how can that even be possible?! 

I have never been to a wedding where speeches lasted more than 20 mins total! 

How could these people think they have that much to say?! 

How could the bride speak for nearly an hour and a half? What did she even say?!

Wowwww that’s crazy! The last wedding I attended was the polar opposite. The Maid/Matron of Honor and best man literally just stood up, said that they didn’t know what to say but congrats to the bride and groom, and sat back down. Also awkward.
