You will want to make a
brief sketch of what you want to say to the bride and groom. For
example, you will want to acknowledge the day, ceremony or
venue. You will want to comment on the appearance of the bride and
groom. You may want to have a poem, verse or a quote to read. If you
have a story you want to share with their guests, you should make note
of it. And of course, last but not at all least, your wedding wishes for
the bride and groom.
Now that you have your outline, next will be writing the sentences to
create your paragraph. I know this whole process can be overwhelming but
that's why we are breaking it down. This will help you to concentrate on
only one thing verses the whole speech and allow you to really embrace
what you want to say. So, first sentence about the day.
Was it a beautiful ceremony? Great whether and a perfect venue for a
wedding? If so, write a starting sentence to compliment their day and
wedding choices. Next comment on the bride and grooms appearance. Was
she radiant, lovely or stunning? Make it completely about her but to
then throw in that the groom looked good too! You don’t want to leave
him out even though everyone knows everyone was looking at her!!
Next you will want to include the poem or a quote you found that you
though reminds you of the couple or you can combined it with your
wedding wish. Or if you’d prefer not to add in a poem or a quote maybe a
story you remember about the bride and grooms first encounter or the day
they got engaged. This should be something about the two of them if you
can. You will then want to finish your speech off with some special
wishes for the bride and groom with of course cheering to the couple at
the end. We’ve used these steps to create the below speech:
Jim and Joan,
I must say, your venue choice for your wedding ceremony was perfect! And
not to mention the luck of receiving such beautiful whether complimented
your choices wonderfully! And I have to mention how beautiful Joan
looked as she walked down that isle! Wow, stunning!! Oh and Jim, you
looked pretty good yourself! I want to keep this short and sweet so I
have a prayer I would like to read to you that is my marriage wishes for
the two of you:
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now you will feel no loneliness, for each of you will be companionship
to the other.
Now you are two persons but there is only one life between you.
