You’ve all heard of or experienced the person at a wedding that gets up to say their speech and goes on for a bit too long while everyone gets restless in their seats right? I just attended a wedding where not one person did that..seven people did!!
they of were tasteful, heartfelt speeches but this is how it went…
*After the ceremony: bride and groom spoke for 20 mins
*at reception: m.c 15 mins, FOB 30 mins, MOG 30 mins, FOG 30 mins, Maid/Matron of Honor 35 mins, Bridesmaid or Best Man 30 mins, GROOM, another 40 mins.
abad best part of all, BRIDE, 1 hour 20 mins. Not even kidding.
i think I just experienced the mother load of wedding speeches. PHEW! That was hard work y’all!! Thought I would share 🙂

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…

They bride and groom (but mainly the bride) went through a massive list of people and thanked every single person that has influenced her life in some way. It was very touching but haaaarrd to get through.
there was speeches then dinner then more speeches. We got dessert at 11pm! Lol!!

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?!

This is CRAZY! I don’t even think the people they were thanking would appreciate this!

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.

@tronski: you’re right. A lot of the people the bride was thanking had gone outside for a chat. One person walked out and came back 30 mins later and was like “is this still going on?” And walked out again. So embarrassing!
