You know what we’re talking about. You’re settled in at your friend’s wedding reception, ready to toast to their happiness—and either the maid of honor or best man gets up and delivers a horrifying speech. It fills the room with tension, awkward glances, and in some cases, really upset people. Not good.

But since that surely won’t happen at yours, we might as well laugh about it, right? Our colleagues over on The Philly Post today wrote about the five worst types of wedding toasts—and we just had to share.

Have a nightmare story of witnessing one of these types of toasts? Please, please, please share in the comments.
