Sample Speech 1
Excuse me, everyone. I’d like to take a few moments to talk to you about my best friend Jennifer and her new husband Mark.
I’ve been Jennifer’s best friend since we were little girls. I remember how we used to play dress-up and dream of the weddings we would have when we were grown up. I’m sure that the wedding that has taken place here today far surpasses the childhood dreams I know Jennifer had about her big day!
Jennifer is one of the most loving, caring and kind people I’ve ever met. She has a fantastic sense of humor and a sharp wit — so look out, Mark! All kidding aside, though, I couldn’t be happier to honor my best friend on her wedding day.
Jennifer and Mark, I wish you all the love and happiness in the world. How blessed you are to celebrate your love on this beautiful day. I know there are many happy years of love and togetherness ahead for you.
Let’s all raise our glasses to Jennifer and Mark, and wish them a lifetime of love and joy!
Sample Speech 2
Good evening, everyone! I’d like to propose a toast to the bride and groom. Jennifer, as your best friend, I couldn’t be happier to celebrate this day with you. You’ve always been there for me throughout the years, and now I am honored to stand by your side today.
When Jennifer began dating Mark, I could tell their relationship would be more than just a casual thing. I could tell right away that there was something special there, something that we all want to find for ourselves — true love.
Mark, I know you will love and care for Jennifer for the rest of her life. I couldn’t wish for a better groom for my best friend!
In the spirit of love and unity, let’s toast the bride and groom and wish them all the happiness they deserve!
