I agree that saying anything now is not going to work out too well. I would like to stand up and toast my sister at the wedding for bailing us out and thank my mother for once again causing me stress. That would go over well.
Thank you for sharing our day with us. We are so happy to share this moment with the people we care most about...... (etc...)
I'd like to take a moment to thank some of the people who have brought us to this day. I'd like to thank my wonderful sisters, who shared in the excitement of being a bride by going gown shopping with me, smiling politely thru bridezilla moments (haha), helping to plan the wedding, the shower, and contributing financially to make this day as special as possible.
I'd like to thank my mom, for giving birth to me and my sisters. I'd also like to thank you for not forcing yourself into the wedding planning. Your complete abandonment while you focus on yourself and your new marriage, is just what I needed to further cement the bond between myself and my sisters, thus making this day so very special. You've taught me so much mom, and it reads like a "what not to do" manual for marriage and motherhood."
(BTW--- I love your sense of humor. Revoking the wedding invitation is pretty amusing to picture)
