As the groom entered the hall, he boasted about how his bride was the most beautiful woman in the room. This upset his vain mother terribly. The agitated mother-of-the-groom decided to make a toast to her new daughter-in-law. She asked everyone to please rise as she prepared to speak. She politely praised the beautiful tables, the beautiful centerpieces, the beautiful bridesmaids, and the beautiful music at the reception. She rudely neglected to mention the beautiful bride at all. Her faux pas was so outrageous, it caused the mother-of-the-bride to faint and fall off her chair.
