Humorous Wedding Speech by a Friend of the Groom Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen - I must admit to being rather nervous about today's speech. As it’s a family occasion, the last thing I want to do is cause offence by talking in too much detail about Brian’s colorful past. I’ve therefore decided to edit out anything that might cause offence. So thank you very much and have a wonderful evening! Sit down. Laughter. Stand up and continue. I read somewhere that you can flesh out your speech by researching which famous people were born the same day as the groom (bridegroom), and make some sort of link.

Although not a major event or a memorable event, I did find it amusing that also on this day, back in 1976, the first ever team from the then "Beaser Homes League" qualified for the 5th round of the FA cup. And here we are again, 27 years later, another no-hoper having done astonishingly well. I'd like you all to join me now in wishing Brian and Irene the very best for their future journey together. And I hope, when they look back years from now on this, their wedding
