“I just wanted to say thank you so much to the team for all your help with our speech. Even though it was a pretty rushed job it went down amazingly well and we received a lot of compliments – most importantly our parents loved it!” – Katie B.
Anniversary speeches generally come in two sizes:
- The husband and / or wife welcoming guests and musing over the past
- A much-loved guest proposing a toast to the happy couple
In our experience, a great golden wedding or silver wedding anniversary speech can be much more fun than a wedding speech. For a start there are less eggshells to tread on. The days are long gone when you worried about what the older generation thought. You have kept in touch with the friends you genuinely like. And your own family will (usually) add some fun to the mix.
There is also less of a ‘templated’ feel to the speeches. There are no bridesmaids to thank or father-of-the-bride to pander to.
Best of all, you now have many years of marriage (and shared experience) to use as material. Rather than the coming-together of two separate lives, this speech can truly reflect a joint (and hopefully happy) life together.
This means that you can start with a blank piece of paper and there is no excuse for lack of originality. Which means no cut and paste jokes about golden clocks or smelly slippers.
