The Groom's speech can be summed up in two words - Thank you.
- Thank you to the first speaker for his kind words, best wishes, and for the toast to the bride and groom.
- Thank you to the bride's parents for producing such a beautiful girl.
- Thank you to his parents for their love, kindness and support.
- Thank you to the bride for agreeing to marry him, often followed by an amusing story about when they were going out.
- A declaration of love for the bride and a promise to do all he can to ensure her future happiness.
- Thank you to anyone who has done something special for the wedding.
- Thank you to the guests for attending and for all their presents.
- Thank you to the best man and the ushers for their help.
- Thank you to the bridesmaids for assisting the bride and a comment on how beautiful they look.
- A toast to the bridesmaids.
- Stay sober and avoid the temptation of a little "Dutch courage".
- Rehearse your speech before hand - several times.
- Remember to take your cue cards with you to the wedding.
- Forget to thank anyone who went out of their way to do something for the wedding.
- Be afraid to declare your love for the bride publicly. It is the reason everyone is at the wedding, so there is no need to be embarrassed about expressing your love.
- Speak for more than five minutes or you risk boring your audience.
