After the heartwarming wedding ceremony and a few glasses of wine, it’s time for the speeches. If you’ve ever given a speech at a wedding, you’ll know that it can be somewhat intimidating to show a large group of people how much you love and care for the bride and groom using your words.
Whether you’re the best man of the maid of honor, it’s an inevitable part of the job. Often, wedding speeches are a mix of hilarious antidotes, nostalgic stories, and tear-jerking memories that have the crowd feeling every emotion in the book.
During Heidi and David’s wedding, the bride’s sister, Mel, delivered a maid of honor speech that no one will ever forget. Looking beautiful in her dress, Mel grabs the microphone, and the first thing out of her mouth is, “Well, I’m glad I had a bunch of Johnny Walker Blue before I came here so I can be prepared for this.”
It didn’t take long for Mel to have the entire audience filled with laughter. Being the loving sister she is, she had to embarrass Heidi a bit with tales of the past. With a heart made of gold, Mel finished her speech with a smooth transition that had everyone reaching for the tissues.
