Maid of Honor Bloopers

What was your worst Maid of Honor (or Best Man) speech that you gave, experienced or even heard of?!?! I'd love to hear some fun stories to make me less nervous (or more LOL)?


  1. I was the MOH for my best friend and left my handwritten speech in the room we got ready in! I had to wing it! She said she still loved it and it made her cry, so I think I still did ok! :)

  2. Well I don't have any really funny stories but I didn't really plan on us having speeches at our wedding. Only my FIL and my husband's best man wanted to give speeches. So my MOH jumped up and gave the shortest speech ever.

    "Congrats, and sorry for crying."

    Probably the only wedding speech I can remember off the top of my head.

  3. I was at a wedding once where the Best Man said something SO inappropriate about the bride that everyone there made an audible "GASP!"

    I mean, something so wrong and embarassing! I won't even say what it was, out of respect for this bride!!!

    This is what you can get when your Future Husband's Best Friend is a Ding Bat!!!

    Lay out some ground rules ahead of time!!!

  4. I was the MOH at my best friends wedding a month ago (right when the whole swine flu thing was EVERY WHERE in the media). I requested to give my speech first because I knew that the best man's speech would be a train wreck! Well, he out did himself. He tried to be Mr. Comedian and failed miserably. He did this long, drawn out speech about the swine flu. Note, some of my best friend's family is from Mexico and the rest are of decent. Que the crickets......they were NOT amused about the swine flu jokes! And the rest of the guests were horrified that he didn't see that it was wrong to even go there!

    He gave this speech even after the bride and groom told him 'no to the swine flu jokes' and laid out ground rules. Very inconsiderate!

  5. My FI was at a wedding where the BM made a speech calling the grooms ex a crazy b*tch. I was at a wedding where the father of the groom told the room that he never thought his son was special but his new daughter law did and they thought she was. I'm paraphrasing but my version is nicer!

  6. I saw a best man once who got played off by the band because he just kept going on and on and on and on and on about how badly matched the bride and groom were .. total opposites, it will never work!

    Yep, not kidding.
