For my daughter’s wedding

Word Count: 774

Guests, family, relatives, in-laws and outlaws, young and old, friends, friends of friends, freeloaders and hangers-on – let me extend a warm welcome to Melissa & John’s wedding reception celebration, may I thank you all for coming, special thanks indeed to those that have traveled from Portugal to share in this special occasion.

Not everyone here may be aware that the human brain is a most fascinating and complex machine. It starts work the moment we are born and never stops until the moment we stand up to speak in public. On that basis please forgive me for writing down my speech

I think today has gone really well and I hope you all are having and will continue to have a good time.

My problem is that I never realized that giving something away could cost so much, but in the long run it should be worth it just to get rid of her.


Here’s to the present for all that you share.
Here’s to the future for all your plans together.
And here’s to Love, Laughter and Happy Ever After.
The Bride and Groom.
