Wedding ushers are a lot like tinted windows on a Ford Fiesta; they're a nice bit of decoration that's not really necessary. If the wedding party was a football team, the Ushers would be Phil Neville. However, if you have decided to employ a few well-dressed gentlemen on the day to mill about the place then there are a variety of things you can use them for, such as showing people to their seats, helping elderly folk to and from the loos and, of course, target practice. Go on, nobody will miss one. But there's another often overlooked duty which wedding ushers can perform - the role of joke sponge.
51 Best Man jokes for a speech to win over any wedding crowd

When you're making a wedding speech, you have to fulfil three sacred duties in order to pass through the experience unscathed. First, you must pay respectful homage to the married couple and their kin. Second, you should be as entertaining as it is humanly possible for you to be. And last but by no means least, you must thank a bunch of people for basically doing nothing but standing there and looking pretty. Acknowledging how lovely the bridesmaids look is an obligation all Best Men, Grooms and Father's of the Bride must fulfil.
Wedding Speeches – Don’t Forget to Thank Your Parents
One of the funniest wedding speeches I've heard was at the wedding of some friends where the best man opened the night's festivities. He then motioned to sit down while the guests, even the oldies, giggled at what I thought was a pretty good ice-breaker. It set the tone for the rest of the speeches, and that one thing - tone - is probably the most important thing when it comes to speeches, I reckon. Too humorous, it becomes a bit of a joke and you can see guests squirm in their seats. Too mushy, the non-romantics switch off.
