Wedding Speech Advice
« on: Sunday 14 January 2018, 11:32:06 PM »
Just after a bit of advice on a particular part of my wedding speech for the big day in 1 month - something may come to me but at the moment I'm hitting a brick wall and hoping to take on some suggestions from people who've done this before - especially those who've maybe had kids before getting married.

I'm going to have a section of my speech to talk about what an amazing mam my future lass is, but I'm not sure how to enhance what I have already.

At the moment all I have is a section which is effectively "She's an extraordinary mother" / "I'm really thankful to her for making my son" which is perhaps a bit cliche and could maybe do with something else added to it. Any advice please ?

Maybe talk about the specific maternal characteristics she has, and an example or two? Like if she looks after to you when you're hungover :lol: or if she's protective of a little sister or something.......

My only advice having done a best man's speech is to time it before you do it. I didn't and had kept adding loads of s*** so it went on literally forever. Batteries ran out on the video camera so some of the best stuff wasn't captured [emoji38]
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Have a best man speech myself in August. Already dreading it. :lol: Need to do my research, write something and practice it.

If I ever get asked again I'm just going to totally disown the person instead of having to go through that again.

Mention how elegant and beautiful she is, how caring and considerate she is and how you have no doubts that such a beautiful person would make a fantastic mother in the future.

This in the help section :lol: You might get more responses in GC :thup:

I'd throw an anecdote in there to illustrate what you mean.  It doesn't have to be dramatic or hilarious or anything, but it will bring it to life a bit I reckon.  People enjoy listening to stories and tend to be more engaged when there's a beginning, middle and end.

Good luck.  Terrifies me, this s***.

Stealing that, if I ever do a best man’s speech :lol:

Love that sort of joke...if delivered correctly and not like Stephen Merchant in that horrendous speech in an instantly forgettable film (that bit is the only worthwhile section)

Don't write a speech. Just bullet points. A little.look down now and again rather than reems of paper.

Yep, I did mine with a kindle, two sentences on each page. I don't have any embarrassing stories about my brother really, so I more went for how great he is. All lies obviously.
