Wedding DJs start playing music as soon as the toasts are finished, so over time, they’ve heard a lot of speeches from the happy couple’s family and friends, many of whom aren’t very good at public speaking. Some are petrified by the task, but the worst are those who take the opportunity to be totally inappropriate. In this article, we get a roundup of wedding speech horror stories.
Apparently before the wedding, the bride had lost about 60 pounds, so of course, the father of the groom thought it would be funny to make fat jokes. There were literal gasps from the audience, and I don’t know if he panicked or what, because he didn’t stop. I was MCing the wedding as well, so I had to get up there and cut him off because it was a complete disaster. I just made fun of him, and everyone laughed at my jokes. Thankfully that thawed out the icy situation he’d just created.
