Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom


I was really, really nervous about standing up here and speaking.

I did prepare a few lines for today and
having snorted them I now feel absolutely fine.

I did have a great speech worked out for you today, but as I am now married,
my wife has told me what to say instead.

I'd like to start by thanking you all on behalf of my wife and I being here
with us today, especially those who have travelled some distance to be here.

We would also like to thank you all very much for your cards, kind thoughts
and wonderful presents. I was afraid that putting a dinner service on the
wedding list was not such a good idea, when I discussed it with Mary I
suggested that we should get a dishwasher, but she told me not to worry ,
and that she was going to get one when we got married, Me!

In all seriousness when Mary and I where planning this wedding we had
considered getting married abroad, however with a bit of gentle persuasion
from June(Bride's mom) consisting of her tightly gripped fist and my wedding
tackle, we decided to give it a miss.

Somebody once asked me when Adam & Eve were together how did we know that
they lived in paradise? well in view of the fact that my new Mother-in-Law
is so close, I don't want to say much, other than this- Adam had no
Mother-in-law, that's how we know he lived in paradise.
But seriously I would like to thank June for all her...

...e is that it was Berlin's the pub, Cairo Jax
the nightclub, Iceland the freezer shop and Texas the DIY store.

Finally

I asked Mary's mom in the Church, how did Mary look in her wedding dress,
she said she looked wonderful, but that didn't prepare me enough for when I
saw her walk down the aisle. I was overwhelmed to say the least by how
beautiful Mary looks today.

So, to my wife, my bride and joy – thank you for everything you have done and
making me the happiest man alive. you know everything about me and love me
just the same, I have my faults, yet you still agreed to marry me. I am
extremely lucky today to be the one to marry you - and I hope this is the
start of many happy years together.

Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom - Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom Well , what can I say, Thankyou for those kind words Alan and I hope $20 was enough.

I'm no different, suffice to say that this isn't the first time today I've risen from a warm seat with a piece of paper in my hand. MANY PEOPLE Many people thought this day would never come....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 756 words

Wedding Speech Delivered by the Bride - Wedding Speech Delivered by the Bride Families and friends. This has been a terrific day for Bob and I and we are both thrilled you could all be here. I wanted to say a few words in response to my Dad and thank a few people for all their support. I have spent a lot of time thinking about how to make these thanks – its amazing how much advice and how many books there are out there for Groom and Best Man’s speeches but there is not a lot out there to help the bride. So having failed to find any sensible advice in print, I thought I would ask around to the family and friends for some advice on what to say this evening....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 1114 words
