Talking point: Talking about a wedding you've been to

In our weekly 'Talking point' section we continue focusing on the anecdote feature of Macmillan's Inside Out.

Today's topic is about talking about a wedding you've been to. Before getting together with the members of your conversation group, go over the questions below, so that you ideas flow more easily when you get together with the members of your conversation group and you can work out vocabulary problems beforehand.
  • Who was getting married?
  • Where, when  and what time of year did the ceremony take place?
  • What was the weather like?
  • What were you wearing?
  • What did the bride and groom wear?
  • Did you know many people at the wedding?
  • Where did you go for the reception?
  • What did you have to eat and drink?
  • Did anybody give any speeches? Who? What did they say?
  • Did the guests give the bride and groom presents?
  • How did the day end?
  • Did you enjoy the wedding?
  • What was your favourite moment?
To illustrate the topic, you can watch Hugh Grant's famous best man speech in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral.
