Wedding Speech Delivered by the Bride :: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches
Wedding Speech Delivered by the Bride You may well be wondering what the Bride is doing making a speech. Well, those of you who know me well, know that I always have talked too much and usually find a way to get my two cents worth in so it probably is no surprise! I also wanted to say thank you to those deserving in my own words. When I met Ray, I was totally off men and relationships, so it is a more than a little surprising to find myself standing here just under two years later! I have my sister to thank for this remarkable conversion, as she was the Cilla Black wannabe who got us together Ã¢â¬â with all the subtlety of Blind Date I might add. Her favorite trick was to invite Ray to come for drinks with her and I and then suddenly Ã¢â¬Å"rememberÃ¢â¬ sheÃ¢â¬â¢d left the iron on or hadnÃ¢â¬â¢t fed the cat or any other such nonsense. Of course this was highly embarrassing and cringe-making but I am so very grateful to Donna for knowing us both better than we knew ourselves, knowing that we should be together and putting us in each othersÃ¢â¬â¢ lives. She has been a great Bridesmaid and she has helped a lot over the last few months; not least in the organisation of a top hen party - the details of which follow the time honoured code of Ã¢â¬Å"What goes on tour, stays on tourÃ¢â¬ ! Donna not only is the best sister a girl could ever have but she is also my very bestest friend and has been my idol since I arrived in this world. Thank you so much for everything, not least for loving me. This is just a small gift as a token of our love and appreciation. While I am on thanking there are a few more that I would like to do and I promise to be brief! Firstly thanks to all of you for coming and thank you for the wonderful gifts Ã¢â¬â weÃ¢â¬â¢ll look forward to opening them when we get back from honeymoon. I know that most of you took time off work and travelled a long way to be here and I want to say how much it means to us to share our day with the family and friends that love us. Sadly not everyone could be with us and I would especially like to mention RayÃ¢â¬â¢s Grandfather, George who sadly passed away last year and my favourite Aunt, Auntie Kissie who has been very ill and wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t well enough to make the journey.
