Hi there, Liz here
If you’re a bride who is going to make a speech at her wedding then you’ve come to the right place because I’ve been there and done that. And believe me, it’s not easy! My dear Dad died not long before my wedding and although my uncle stepped in to “give me away”, he didn’t really want to try to do the father of the bride speech, so I decided to do it myself.
Easily said, not so easily done!! I agonised for weeks over the alternatives: a funny speech, with typical wedding jokes; stories of my childhood; stories of how I met my husband to be?
Finally, I found help with my dilemma and I opted for a mixture of all three – no risqué jokes though, that should be left to the best man!
