many times she's been married, and the reply was 4. 'Four times!' exclaims Clara, 'why so many?' So Jenny replies, 'Well, I first got married when I was very young, and I
married this wonderful man who was a banker. However, one day just a
few weeks after we were married, his bank was robbed and he was shot and
killed.' 'Oh my word, that's terrible,' Clara said. 'Well, it wasn't that tragic. Soon after that, I started seeing another
man who performed in the circus. He was really a great guy, but he
lived pretty dangerously because he performed his high-wire act without a
net. Well, a few weeks after we got married, he was performing a show and

A Brief Guide to the Etiquette of Wedding Day Speeches
The order of wedding speeches is traditionally as follows: The father of the bride
usually talks fondly about his daughter. As with most speeches, it is
accepted that a mixture of affectionate anecdote and humour generally works
well. He then toasts the bride and groom. The groom speaks next and replies on behalf of himself
and his wife [in these modern times it should be remembered that more and
more brides are making their own speeches*]. He aims to thank those people
involved in helping them both in the planning of the wedding and distributes
gifts to those who are to receive more than a verbal "thank you." The groom
then may talk about his new wife before proposing a toast to the bridesmaids The best man's oration now follows. He thanks the bride
and bridegroom on behalf of the bridesmaids and himself for asking them to
be part of their special day and for the gifts they have received and then
he reads out telegrams, cards, e-mails or other messages from friends and
relatives who couldn't be at the wedding. He will then go on to talk about
the groom in what can be the highlight, or in some cases lowlight, of the
wedding speeches. Humour and anecdote abound. Finally the best man
should then propose a toast to the parents of the bride and bridegroom. The maid of honor's speech may follow the best man's. Will and Guy say that if you are looking for help in preparing your
speech then please spend some time reading our carefully prepared pages.
