Ladies and gentlemen, as the father of the bride I have the pleasure to welcome you to my daughter, Mindy’s wedding. Thank you all very much for making time to come. Who would have thought that my baby girl would mature so fast, and that within 24 years I would still want to hang around her and enjoy watching seeing her discovering her way in life? To bad, that she has discovered a man who is getting her away from me. Naturally as the dad, I want to have her around forever, but Mindy, I know you are happy with Richard now, and that makes me even happier. I want the couple to know that I’m still working to make my marriage better so you should do the same, never at one time give up on each other, your mother not giving up on me and me not giving up on her is what has made our marriage last this far. They told me not to give a lengthy wedding ceremony speech, so I beg to leave it at that. Finally, I propose this toast for my beautiful daughter and her husband.
