On the bright side... YOUR WEDDING IS ONLY 12 DAYS AWAY!! LOL

I know I shouldn't have laughed when I read his speech but I did. hehe It's simple and says pretty much what you asked him to say. he could have lengthened it a bit but he instead he made it short and sweet. LOL

Maybe ask him to write answers to some questions you come up with. My suggestions are like something more about how we felt when he first met you? (hopefully good), a funny memory (? ), the best piece of advice about marriage. Maybe he just needs a little assistance. My questions were pretty lame but I'm sure you get the point.

    Awwwww... maybe he could have a couple of drinks before the speech? Click the image to open in full size.
    Or suggest he read a short poem that he picks out. Maybe it would be easier for him if they were not his words and he is able to read them.

    My dad said three words at our engagement dinner and started to cry, so everyone lifted their glasses and toasted to us... knowing that he was just overwhelemed with emotion and didn't know how to phrase it.

      I've decided just to tell him that it's fine the way it is and hope he feels spontaneous on our wedding day LOL

      Awesome! I'm glad you're happy with it melissa. You must be getting to the point of excitment now! I'm sure that whole day/night is going to be a good memorable one no matter what the speeches are like. How many toasts/speeches are you having?

        FI and I are each doing one, and then our dads...my MOH is pretty shy and our best man will probably be too drunk to talk by the time we get around to speeches
