'Thank-You' Speech Etiquette - How to thank everyone 'properly' - HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok - working on the 'thank-you' speeches for the reception. Everything is pretty straight-forward except when it comes to thanking

the parents,,,
See...my parents paid for the entire wedding and my fiance's mom didn't contribute anything . I want to single out my parents because its a big deal that they made the day happen for us - but I dont want to disclude my fiance's mom entirely either. At the same time I don't think she should get recognition other than just being 'supportive'.... nor do I think my parents should be lumped into thanking her when they did so much more - gah! this is so difficult!wacko.gif

This is what i have so far.....

 

Last but certainly not least - we'd like to thank our parents. All the love and support you've given us over the years has shaped who

 we are today. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for you and there are no words to describe our gratitude and appreciation.

 Mom..Dad…thank you especially for giving us the wedding of our dreams. We couldn't have asked for a better day and we owe

you so much for making it all happen.

 

Pleeeeaaaase tell me what you think! - ANY suggestions/advice is greatly appreciated!!!

Tough situation!

 

I think what you said is beautiful. I think it would work perfectly, especially if you are the one that's speaking, to address your thanks for your parents making your wedding happen! Then if your husband wants to specifically thank his mom, he can say something himself.

 

PS: We're wedding date twins! Thanks for the reminder that we should start working on our speeches...lol.

i think you formulated a lovely speech to give credit where credit's due. I also agree with branya2012 that if your husband would like to say something to thank his mom then that would be lovely too.
