Father of the Bride Speech
I have little notes here to keep me focused and hopefully not make a clown of meself.
I know there’ll be a lot of ye out there having a right old laugh at me now so I warn you don’t , or I won’t buy you a drink ever again in my life
Would you believe I didn’t even realise that I had to do any speech until Jenny told me about 6 months ( that’s how organised she is ) ago and I finally got round to jotting down a few notes on the way over on the boat yesterday just the fool I am…..
If anyone out there has a quick cure for the shakes will you get yerself up here fairly lively and tell me what to do next. (Molly my littlest daughter down there has promised to help me out if I got stuck so I may call on you yet Molly so don’t go hiding under the table.
Ok lets move on !! a couple of things to say firstly
I think the format for the FOTB speech is all wrong for 2 reasons
No.1. I think the speech should be done by the Mother of the Bride (This very beautiful lady over here for any of you that don’t know, you Got off the hook there Kay so don’t you even dare think about laughing at me ,, haha ) or even by the father of the Groom ( Anthony, this charming young man down here, Who by all accounts is a dab had at these speeches is that right Anthony ??
No.2. The speech should be done before the ceremony ( because its now made it totally impossibly for me to say bad word about Mark ! ) too late , chance gone, you’re a lovely bloke now Mark honestly ,,,, not !!! don’t worry I’ll be back to you in a minute.
Reverned Father , Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to this Fantastic and beautiful occasion , the wedding of Jenny and Mark.
My name is Tom Jackman, Tommy, Thomas, or Tomas so please try to stick to one of those names if at all possible I happen to be the luckiest man alive today because I am the Father of the Bride Jennifer Jenny Jackman well she was a Jackman up...
