Mother of the Bride Speech

Word Count: 480

They say time does not wait for any one. But at moments like these, it seems time passed by much too fast. If I simply close my eyes, I can see my daughter as she was the minute she was born, the day we brought her home and every moment between then and now- as she stands before me simply glowing from delight.

Before I get sentimental, however, I want to thank each and every one of you for joining us on this extremely special day. It means a lot to us that you would take time out to be a part of this joyous occasion. For everyone who helped with the wedding preparations- and there were many- I am truly grateful to all of you, from the very bottom of my heart.

However, the one thing I know for sure is that it feels surreal to see my beloved daughter look as ravishing and as content as she does right now, right beside her husband. With that being said, I wish you two all the happiness in the world and hope that as you journey together, through life, you fall deeper in love and spend a lifetime of magical and wonderful moments by each other’s side. As Rumi said, “Live life as though everything is rigged in your favour”.
