i never thought about it until she brought this up and i REALLY like the idea. not that i have a bunch of alcoholics as friends, but i certainly have some drunks as friends who can talk and talk! lol.
so we've decided (be real: I'VE decided) that speeches will happen at the welcome dinner...and on the wedding day we will have our parents speak and we will give a little speech as well...but as far as MOH and BM - they are for sure on welcome party day.
anyone else have a good/bad experience with speeches on wedding day/welcome party?

i know my MOH & BM very well so i trust that they won't get hammered. and if they do and they totally screw up the speech, its definitely be a memory so I'm just going with it!

My husband spoke and I spoke...but that was it :-)
Both of us had been to weddings where some drunk relative had made either a very long and boring and/or inappropriate speech...so we nipped the potential problem in the bud :-)
But yes, I think it depends on your crowd...there were a few people at our reception we were concerned about...
(and not just about fun, drunken speeches...we saw the potential for making people feel uncomfortable...Uugh:-))
Plus, my best friend said she gets nervous speaking in public and would prefer not to....
It's just what worked for us:-) DH's dad made a speech at a dinner the next night :-)
