Wedding speech material for you to adapt, for when you paid a high price on the stag night
By the groom
‘I want to take a moment to talk about the stag weekend Mike organised for me and the lads to go to Blackpool. The weekend was the usual mix of culture and sophistication. But it also reminded me of how lucky I am, marrying Anna. As I lay in the Jacuzzi, smoking a cigar and drinking champagne, I turned to Roxanne and said, ‘Do you know? My wife‐to‐be is the most understanding woman I’ve ever met.
‘Err… judging by her face, though, I think I might have been a bit hasty there.’

‘It’s great to see so many of the lads who went on the stag weekend here today. It’s a shame that the rest of them couldn’t get bail, though. We’ll drink a toast to the Skegness Six later. And their brief tells me that they’ve got a strong case. As long as the horse makes a full recovery, apparently, the farmer will drop most of the charges. But seriously, it was a great weekend which gave Rob a chance to, err, let off some steam before marrying Lisa. Raquel says “Hi” by the way, Rob.’
