Help with speach

Recommended Posts

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

Sarah -

 

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 :)

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
