Default Long, boring speeches at weddings.

Sister was at wedding of friend yesterday. Says she had a great day out, except they had to listen to awful speeches that went on for just over 2 hours before they had the meal. Does anyone really want to go through such agony at a wedding ? Nobody remembers most of it , so why bother ?
Is it a peculiarly Irish thing ? I was at a wedding in Italy a few years ago and as I recall it, speeches were few (2 ?) and were all over in 10 to 15 minutes.
