Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom
Well , what can I say, Thankyou for those kind words Alan
and I hope $20 was enough.
I recently read somewhere that a survey had been conducted
of things that people fear most, and top of the list above things like
spiders and heights, was the fear of standing up and making a speech in public.
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 thought this day would never come. That I'd be
standing here making the speech of a Newly Married man, myself included.
Many people have also told me how lucky I am to be
marrying Jo, including Jo in fact.
But I would like everybody here, especially my new bride,
to know how lucky and proud I am to be standing here speaking to you
as her husband.
WIFE & I
And so, for the very first time, I'd like to say, 'On behalf of my Wife and I'
I would like to thank you all for coming today and sharing
Our special day.
I know this is meant to be our day, but of course it
wouldn't be as special a day if it wasn't for our family and friends
being here with us, and I'm sure you'll all agree that we found the ideal
setting for this memorable occasion.
We would also like to thank you all for your cards, kind thoughts and wonderful gifts.
Tradition dictates that I now tell you an amusing story or two about Jo,
unfortunately she dictates that I do no such thing. But I will say, that we've been living together now for nearly 3 years, and in that time I've learned a very valuable lesson:
Whenever you're Wrong - Admit It!!
Whenever you're Right - Keep Quiet!!
That's probably good advice for most men actually!!!
There are a few thankyous I'd like to make tonight.
I'd like to start by thanking everyone that's helped make
this day the
success I'm sure you'll all agree it has been.
I'd like to say a special thankyou though to Jo's mum Daphne
and her husband Stan for their generosity in...
