Grooms Sentimental Wedding Speech
I want to first thank, [name of your wife’s dad], the father of my beautiful bride. Wasn’t that a wonderful speech? Let’s hear another round of applause for him for raising such a wonderful daughter.
For those of you rushing to the bathroom and to the exists, I promise I’ll quick. I just want to say thank you to a couple of people who have played an especially important role in my life and my new life with this beautiful woman.
To my Mom and Dad—thank you for everything. You two have shaped me into the person I am today and for that, I will forever be thankful. You have instilled in me principles, discipline, and compassion, and you have guided me when I need it most. I love you both. Thank you.
To my groomsmen: you all are great. I can’t imagine any group of people who I would rather have here with me tonight. You have all been great friends to me, and I hope I have done the same for you. [Name of one of your groomsman], [specific anecdote]. And [Name of one of your groomsman who is a relative], [specific anecdote]. Thank you.
To [name of maid of honor], you were great tonight; and I can’t thank you enjoy for supporting my wife throughout this whole ideal. A lot of men complain about their wife’s friends—about how they meddle and gossip. But not me. You’re an amazing friend to my wife and to me, and I’m happy you’re here tonight. Finally, to my new bride, what can I say? You’re beautiful, you’re loving, you’re thoughtful, and you’re funny. You’re everything that a single guy hopes to find, but few do. I’m so happy that I found you, and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you. I love you.
To everyone else who came tonight, thank you for being here. I know a lot of you traveled a long way just to be here and to share this evening with us. So thank you, again.
