Our friend's wedding is now just one short week away. My hubby Justin is the best man and to be honest I am dreading the speech that he is going to give. I'm sure he'll have already had a few cocktails and when this happens he tends to ramble on. I'm also fearful that he won't have prepared anything ahead of time and will just try to wing it. I offered to help him out by writing the speech for him. I came up with (basically "borrowed" a few lines from different sites that I found on the topic) a speech that is a little humorous, kind of sweet and most importantly SHORT! I emailed him a copy and his response was that it was "kinda lame" he also told me not to worry 'cause he has been working on something. I admit that is kind of hokey but people especially from older generations eat that stuff up. Anyway here is my speech. What do you think?
Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen I am up here to say a few thank yous, make a toast, sing the groom's praises and tell you all about his good points. The first two things are fine, but unfortunately I can't sing and I won't lie. Dave and I have been friends since______________ .I value my friendship with Dave and I look forward to having the same great friendship with his lovely new bride Brenna. I know one important thing about Brenna. She has made Dave happier then I have ever seen him. Today is a day of joy and happiness for all of us. But it is not just a day... it's the very special beginning of a new life between Dave and Brenna. My only advice to you Dave is to keep your ears open, mouth shut and occasionally respond with a “Yes Dear” and if you can find the humor in whatever happens to you, your lives will be full of joy. Congratulations!
P.S. I also did a gust blog reviewing the Sleepy Wrap over at Just Talk!
