@sheridd2:  make your speech, but focus on wishing them a happy future. You don’t have to go on a dishonest tirade about what a great guy he is.

Make the speech about your friendship… then just end with… I’m so happy she’s happy. I think lying wiuld be just as uncomfortable for everyone. Your job is to support her, not necessarily the marriage

Focus on her, your friendship and wishing them a happy future. If he’s as bad for her as you seem to think, she’s going to need the well wishes.

Concentrate on your friendship and love for the bride and then wish them a very happy future together.

I had a very similar experience, except that my bestie’s now husband is an abusive drug addict with a trustfund, no job, and the kind of temper that could kill her — he’s one of two human beings I know that I can actually so I hate (I do not use that word lightly).

She knows I don’t like him. I don’t mention it anymore — I told her when they were dating, and then I mentioned it when they got engaged (this got me uninvited from being her Maid/Matron of Honor, but her reasoning for it was sound and we’re the kind who don’t do hurt feelings with each other — it sounds weird, but bestie and I acknowledge that we’re each others’ non-romantic soul mates … completely inseparable).

Since she decided not to have a bridal aprty when she realized no one approved, there were no speeches, but I did write a letter in the card with their wedding gift. In the altter, I just focused on her, how much her friendship means to me and how lovely she is, and I ended it with words to him about treating her right and making her happy. Probably would need to be tweaked for a speech (I may have admonished him a little) but I think the idea of focusing on HER is probably a fine way to go about it.

@sheridd2:  you should def make a speech.  You have tons of memories that built your friendship, focus on that. 🙂
