Awkward thank you speech

Recommended Posts

At first I giggled a bit...Cause we all know where you are coming from!

 

But I think you should still thank them for being there, standing by your side on your special day. There is a reason you chose them, so just remeber those reasons, and you should be okay!

Good Luck!

I too had a little laugh at that!  Its so true.

 

I would just keep it generic, not mention any names and just say thank you.  They are travelling to be there for your special day, so I guess you have to thank them whether or not you feel they deserve it.

I think that fact that your bridal party is coming to a destination wedding is huge and deserves a huge thank you. Honestly, the only thing I expect my bridal party to do is show up and I will be happy. If others offer help or do special things than thats wonderful but I think they all deserver a huge thank you regardless. You chose these people for a reason and they are going to be there for you standing beside you supporting you on your big day, which is what you asked them to do. So thats what I would thank them all for.

I agree with the other posters that I know where you are coming from, but I think you should focus on why you asked them to be in your wedding.  Remember all the things they've done for you in the past and thank them for standing by your side on such an important day.  

 

Unfortunately, sometimes weddings don't bring out the best in our friends.

I agree, give a speech thanking them all, if they feel bad because they realize that they haven't done anything to be thanked for, then that 's their problem. Your bases are covered and you showed class by thanking everyone.

Agreed!  They are traveling a long ways to be there for you!  But I am sure we can all relate that not everyone pulls their weight when it comes to the wedding.  But I think it still speaks volumes that they are even coming!

 

I am actually dreading thanking my dad and his heinous wife!  But unfortunately it has to be done!  (but it will be short and sweet)  :)

That's why I have chosen not to have people stand up in my wedding. I didn't want anyone to feel like they had to do things. My girlfriends who are able to make it to my wedding is more than I can ask for in this economy. Just a thought.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
