    Hi girls I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to post samples of the thank you speaches they said or are planning to say at their wedding. My FI and I are trying to think of something now, but I suck at expressing my feelings on writing, so I just wanted to get a few ideas from you girls! we just want to say something short and sweet.
    Thanks so much for your help with this!

        lol - when I first got engaged, someone gave me this big book of Speeches and Thank Yous. I haven't looked through it - and it's at home, otherwise I'd take a look at it now for you. I think they'd be pretty impersonal though! If you like I check when I get home in a few hours

          I didn't say a damn thing! The nice thing about being married is that your husband can speak for both of you :) Rafael stood up at some point during dinner & basically thanked everybody for making the trip to spend our special day with us.

          The fun part for me was hearing what everybody else stood up to say to us, the happy couple.

              Oops, sorry about that Lisa! I am personally a big fan of impromptu speeches, so I probably wouldn't stress out too much. Just go with the flow. Something along the lines of "James & I are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family. Thank you for making the journey to join us at the begining of our life journey. Cheers!"

                Oh I'm sooo going to use that one!!

                Well maybe he won't be drunk in a corner...but you know what I mean....he sooo is not going to want to talk to everyone. MAYBE once there, he'll change his mind.

                Thanks for the speech Christa!!

                    Crap, I wish---- Frank gets too nervous when he has to stand and do anything publicly... Plus, a big portion of my job requires me to do public speaking in fronto of strangers and to write my own material, so I know I'll be the one speaking for both of us.

                      Oh my we didn't write anything beforehand. Which is probably why we got drunk and babbled on and on! Oh well, hopefully everyone else was drunk too :)
