Father of the Bride Speech with Humor, Sentiment, and Love
(Stand up, mobile phone in hand)” Well thank you vicar it is a bit inconvenient at the moment I am just about to start the speeches."
I’m afraid there's been a bit of a hiccup in the proceedings; the vicar has just phoned to say that we have to do the registry signing all over again. It appears that the groom’s pen wouldn’t work so he borrowed the vicar’s. He was still having problems so the vicar said. "Put your weight on it”(To the bride) I’m afraid that you are now Mrs. 179 lbs.
I'm only going to speak for a couple of minutes because of my throat. If I go on too long my wife has threatened to cut it. I've tried to memorize this speech, which isn't easy when you have the memory retention of a goldfish. So forgive me if I resort to my notes every five seconds.
When the happy couple announced that they were going to get married, I asked them what that entailed for me and my daughter said that I would have to give her away. To those of you who know me well, that came as a bit of a shock as I am not used to giving things away. Selling maybe, but giving away, I ask you. However, I did a deal with the groom, your tickets for a Wimbledon tennis match for my daughter. I hope you’ll agree that he came out best.
My wife and I would like to welcome the groom's parents and all relatives and friends of both families to this very happy occasion. There are also several people who I. wish could have been here but aren't and hopefully they are keeping an eye on proceedings from afar.
I would like to thank the beautiful bridesmaids for looking after the bride, the vicar for a lovely service, his boss for the great improvement in the weather and the staff at the hotel for the great food and service.
Clearly, large family events like today's don't just happen. They take it considerable amount of hard work and organization and it would seen an appropriate point, therefore, for me to ask you all to join me in a toast to my wife, as without her constant hard stork and organizational skills, today would not have been the fine occasion that it is. To my wife. Any excuse for a drink.
It is I believe traditional to give an insight into the people whose marriage you have all just witnessed. My daughter has made a beautiful bride, but what sort of person is she?Well for a start she isn't environmentally friendly. She wouldn’t let us buy re-cycled toilet paper because she thought it was.
She has of course always brightened up our lives. You never did learn to turn lights off did you. She always complained that she had nothing to wear, but...
