It went down like a lead balloon and he and his wife had a blazing row later on that night.
It was the most awkward wedding I ever attended.
Christ, some fellas just can't help themselves.

Cringe!!

I was at one once where the father of the groom serenaded the bride. Awkward....

Another one where the best man pretended to propose to his girlfriend during his speech. Only thing worse than proposing during a best man speech is pretending to do it. The girlfriend savaged him after the speech!!

Was at one where they were timing the speeches and trying to outdo each other in length, the tables were also named after Liverpool 'legends'.


Bellends.

I worked with a girl in Mahon Point when I was a lad. At her wedding the best man said "I want to wish the couple a very enjoyable honeymoon in Wales"

People were like "Wales? Wtf?"

And the groom said "That's what I thought too, but he said he's going to Bangor for a week"

Heard about a best-man recently who went on and on about the various ex-girlfriends of the groom. After much awkwardness, complete lack of laughter from the crowd, and the bestman continuing on, the parents of the bride allegedly got up and left the room.

Bride to Groom "Am I the only one you've ever been with"
Groom to Bride "Yes dear, all the others were nines or tens"
