The worst nightmare of any couple is the cancelled wedding. Despite months of preparation, things can still go wrong even at the moment of saying "I do." From a cheating partner to having the extreme case of cold feet, one must remember to maintain wedding etiquette throughout the entire ordeal.
Brides and grooms began including one or more wedding rings as a part of the marriage contract and ceremony as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece. In some European countries, the wedding ring or rings came to represent the marriage contract or financial arrangement involved in a betrothal rather than being a symbol of love. Later it become a traditional part of the Christian marriage ceremony when Pope Innocent III dictated that wedding rings be used as a symbol of love to complete the wedding ceremony in the 12th century. Still later, King Edward VI-in the 16th century-ruled that wedding rings were to be worn on the left hand because it coincided with the "heart side" of the body and was thus to be worn closest to the heart. This was also in keeping with the Greek and Egyptian tradition of wearing rings on the third finger of the left hand because it was believed that the "vein of love"-also called the "vena amoris"-ran through the third finger on the left hand and was directly connected to the heart.
Just making a sloppy sentimental Maid of Honor speech is one sure way to turn off your audience and annoy the bride. Remember this is not her funeral or an opportunity to demonstrate to everyone how close you were with her. It is a time to honor the bride and add joy to her special day. When considering how to make it funny, don't use inside jokes. Make sure your audience will also find it funny. You may not be a stand up comic, but you can surly think of jokes that have made you laugh--again keep it PG at least. This is probably most easily done by recounting humorous stories about the bride or the groom. Remember we are talking humorous NOT humiliating.
