One of the great things about weddings is that everyone there is in the celebrating mood. Everyone is overjoyed and wants to have a good time. This makes a wedding a perfect place for humor. Everyone from the bride and groom to the most remotely related guests are looking to loosen up and laugh.

The atmosphere is perfect for jokes and light-heartedness, so take advantage of the moment, but not the newlyweds.

Of course, humor needs to be used properly. In any form of comedy, timing is key. Don’t try to tell jokes on the fly. It is better to plan ahead of time and look for appropriate places in your speech to insert some humor. As much as the environment is working to your advantage, it can turn in an instant. A moment that should be funny can quickly turn awkward and embarrassing if your jokes are timed poorly.

One good location for a joke is the very beginning of your speech. An appropriate joke can start things off right. You may not know every single relative and guest at the wedding; a joke will have people empathizing with you even if they don’t know you well.

Personal and raunchy jokes are sometimes told at weddings. However, the very beginning of your speech may not be the best place for a joke like that. You need to build up familiarity with the guests before telling a joke like that. If you want to use humor at the beginning of your speech, be sure to keep it on the cleaner side. Save the dirty ones for a little later.

You can take your cues from other speeches delivered at the wedding. There will be plenty of speeches being given, from the best man to the parents of the happy couple. Listen closely to when and if they tell jokes. Pay attention to how personal and provocative the jokes are. This gives you the opportunity to gage your audience before you have to speak, so you should make the best use possible of it. Are people laughing at the jokes? Are the jokes very personal or somewhat more reserved? Are most speakers starting off their speeches with humor or saving it for the end? See what works for others; it’s likely to work for you as well.

But ultimately your speech is your own. The humor you use should suit you and your style first and foremost. Don’t tell a joke you yourself aren’t comfortable saying. Your discomfort will be clear to everyone listening. There are plenty of resources where you can find jokes that are appropriate for weddings, so take your time and find ones that work for you.

You can even draw on your own experiences for humor. As the maid of honor, you probably know the bride extremely well. Funny anecdotes can make guests at the wedding laugh while allowing you and your friend to relive a special moment.

The best thing you can do if you want to make your maid of honor speech humorous is relax. The best comedians are the ones that make us feel relaxed and welcome. Be personable, and be yourself. The jokes will probably come to you naturally.
