A short father-of-the-bride wedding speech example for you to copy:
‘When Sarah was a little girl, she used to lift her dress over her head and pretend it was a veil. Fortunately, she’s acquired a bit more finesse since then, and today she is the most beautiful bride I have seen since I married her mother more than 30 years ago. I am so proud that my little girl has grown into such a beautiful and accomplished woman.’
‘I’d like to thank John’s parents, on behalf of the bride and groom, for their generosity. Without it we would not be all sitting down to such a lovely meal in such a beautiful hotel, and I’m grateful for them for helping to make this day so special for my youngest daughter.’
‘What can I say about John? Quite simply, Sarah couldn’t have chosen better. He’s everything I would have looked for in a son-in-law and I’m delighted that he’s joining our family.’
‘I don’t want to bore you with how happy I am today, so I’ll finish up with the traditional toast said from the heart. Ladies and gentleman, I give you… the bride and groom.’
