Ask any woman, and she will probably say that one of the happiest days of her life is her wedding day. This is when she finally says goodbye to singlehood and joins another person in the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony to start a new life together. This is when she vows to be with this man through all of life’s ups and downs. Now, brides are traditionally not asked to give a speech during the reception. But nonetheless, here are bride speeches to the groom that might come in handy.
For your introduction, you may simply welcome your guests and thank them for being there to share your day with you and your husband. Say something that goes like this: “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. In behalf of my wonderful husband, I thank you all for being here today. I know that some of you have come a long way just to be here. A wedding is a joyous occasion as it is, but it wouldn’t be a memorable if the people you loved and cared about weren’t there to share the day with you. With that being said, please know that we appreciate your presence and we are happy to share this occasion with you all.”
After giving your warm welcome and expressing your gratitude, you may share your insights or say something profound about weddings. Take this as an example: “A wedding is that momentous occasion when a couple is joined together in front of God, or even a legal authority. A wedding is said to join two souls in the Sacrament of Matrimony, and I know I am blessed to join my soul with that man – my husband.”
“To my husband, I want to thank you for your love. You have always been my hope, my joy, and my guide. You’ve stuck by me through some really tough times, and I know that I wouldn’t have made it without you. You were also there with me during the happiest of times, and I can honestly say that some of my best memories are of times spent with you.”
“Cliché as it may sound, I want you to know that you truly did make me the happiest girl in the world when you asked me to marry you. As I was walking down the aisle, I felt that inner peace – that somehow everything’s gonna be okay, that we will be able to make it through anything as long as we are together.”
These, now, are sample bride speeches to the groom that are both heartfelt and sincere.
