Speech for groom's friends?
My future mother-in-law informed me that as a "surprise" to my fiance, her and my future father-in-law were planning a speech for our reception....for my fiance's friends. They actually want each of his friends to stand up and be acknowledged, simply for being a friend of the groom, while they reminisce on stories from high school (long before I was around). Huh? Has anyone seen this at a wedding?? For some background, my family is hosting the event. His friends played no part in our relationship (besides being our friend). His friends also are not helping with the wedding (while my friends are). We have no other bridal party besides the best man and MOH because there is drama between some of his friends. My fiance and I were already leaning toward having no speeches, not even a champagne toast for our own selves. Do I let this weird friend toast happen? Or do I tell the DJ to not let the microphone out of his sight??
