I am in dire need of some good old marriage advice for my mate and his fiance to give them at their wedding.

Nothing too serious or silly, but i would like to list the best ones in the Best Man's speech.

Help Mums and Dads Netters!!

apparently you should never go to bed on an argument (why not???)

and you shouldn't share the bathwater as it causes arguments.

probably not what you're after. Good luck with the speech.smile

Don't forget that in the life, as in the word WEDDING, the WE comes before the I



And don't be too smutty, or speak too long. Nothing worse than a best mans speech that makes you want to hide under the table with a bottle of gin.

I used these to make my sister a book for hen night, it made for some entertaining advice.

thanks so far. I am actually quite partial to hiding under a table with a bottle of gin.

Might be the way forward. What was that about the bathwater again...

if it helps (it won't) my DF has a complete blackout of his speech when he and DM were married. Go with the gin under the table!!!

I'm sure it'll be fine. there's loads of books... could you just read a romatic poem or something instead?

oh, and if your stomach gets wet while you're working at the kitchen sink, your husband will be a drunk! cheered me up no end as a newlywed that one.

Not helping am I?blush

Best of luck, I always think best man has the hardest speech, the father of the bride just has to say nice things about the bride. The groom just has to say thank you (over and over again). The best man is expected to be witty, tell stories (but as above short ones) and get the balance just right between slightly risque but not upsetting the maiden aunt (unless she is under a table with a bottle of gin).

I disagree about don't go to bed on an argument, it should be don't go to sleep on an argument, you can go to bed - just make up when you get there, it's more fun that way.
