My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
In one of the most accurate portrayals of Greek family life, this patriarchal speech captures the essence of family relations, and brings home the true message of the movie; everything comes from the Greek.
Although not a movie, Joeys speech/audition reel at Monica and Chandler’s wedding is and always will be hilarious.
Female version of The Hangover? I wasn’t so taken, but that’s a story for another day. I’ll give it to Kristen Wiig though; she knows how to write a good duelling maid of honour speech!
Fiddler on the Roof (1971)
This has a permanent place in my Top 5 films ever, and has a killer wedding scene. What’s a wedding without a soviet state demonstration? The song Sunrise, Sunset acts as a speech, and would break the heart of any parent with empty nest syndrome.
The Wedding Singer (1998)
This toast is sibling rivalry at its finest, and who better to give it in an already great wedding movie but Steve Buscemi. He gives the drunken, bitter performance that one can only dream of having at their wedding.
