Not so sure about that, it can mean spending more time at the hotel if that's where the civil ceremony takes place. Weddings are a drag.

That would be very awkward for any couples with young children.

The civil ceremonies I've been to have been a laugh. Far better than a church, which is basically mass with an exchange of rings.


Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

My Church dodging tactic is all about shortening the day really.

My brother did that, was a little odd, but it was his wedding, up to him.

Was at a wedding where the father of the bride said "I'm not one for speeches" and sat down.

Witnessed one of the worst speeches recently, went on and on, there were tears, about a billion thank yous, rambling stories that didn't go anywhere and not a joke to be seen.
Half an hour of hell.

Agree on the speeches before the meal, anyone who does that and takes more than 10 mins hates both the crowd and the caterers.

I tell what's weird, a "wedding comedian". Fuck you Dave Young I want my hour back. You can be Brendan Grace, you can be Roy Chubby Brown or an ok singer. You can't be all 3.

Worst one ever I was at had the father of the bride, a humourless, self important cunt talking for what felt like an hour about "the blessed virgin" and telling a shit anecdote about a fella who didn't know his prayers. The virgin bit was probably a non ironic reference to his daughter, an ugly troll who I'd say was 100% pure at that point

Some hotels use it as an opportunity to time the starter and main so they'll be served hot and in good time. We had to let the hotel know how long each of our speeches would run for this reason.

Ours were 20 mins total for 4 speeches. I don't think we did too bad.
