Let’s face it. Writing any speech is hard. But, writing one for your sister’s big day? Definitely. I’d been working on the thing for weeks. I’d start it, write a line (okay, maybe two), and end up wadding up the yellow legal paper because I didn’t like the way it flowed and toss it towards the non-existent trash can in my living room. Ever the perfectionist, not only was I making a mess in my apartment (which, secretly, drives me nuts), I was hitting road block after road block.
This speech had to be the best thing since sliced bread. Flawless. Epic, really. The idealist in me demanded romance and perfection, with enough humor to captivate the audience (her guests) and keep the new husband and wife from falling asleep at the head table. I didn’t want something generic, something cut, pasted and dried from someone else’s idea.
I wanted it to be genuine. Real. Us – my sister and me. Adding Jordan would be a bonus. If only I could get it right. When writer’s block started to affect my ability to think straight, I put the entire project aside for two weeks, attempting to write the week of the wedding.
Actually, it was the day I planned to leave town and make the 3.5 hour trip back home that I picked up that legal pad, tuned into YouTube for some much needed inspiration and started writing again. After weeping like a sad sap over a few sappy speeches online, it struck me…like a dream from long ago.
I questioned whether Ashley would even remember the moment…when she won the battle between Ariel and Belle, two Disney princesses that profoundly shaped our childhood. I’ll get back to that in a moment. Writing any speech is hard. Writing one for your sister’s wedding…very. This was a day we had both talked and dreamt about since we were kids. We used to pour over sketches and ideas for Barbie’s big day (went through several of those…I swear, the poor gal got married every five minutes) and watch with starry-eyed wonder as Ariel pledged her love to Eric/Belle to the Beast on Saturday afternoons.
Writing any speech is hard. Writing one for your sister’s wedding…very. Yes, I know I’m repeating myself, but can I drive that fact home? Writing something that will last only five minutes, but encompasses your relationship to both bride and the group, passions, dreams, and childhoods is super hard.
Trying to get through said speech without shedding a tear, never mind turning into a blubbering idiot is impossible. For me, at least. For someone who had shut the waterworks off for years, I’ve turned into a sap. I cry over anything that the touches my heart and soul – sappy movies, sappy books – I am definitely not immune to sappy speeches.
So, since I’ve been there and done that, I figured I’d offer a little advice for those seeking inspiration on the topic at hand and to share the speech I gave on my little sister’s special day. • Take time to jot down a few notes or write out an entire speech beforehand. I don’t care if you’re the type to fly by the seat of your pants or oober-organized like me. The day of is crazy-busy and having something prepared/on hand is always a plus.
• At the very minimum, include a favorite memory, funny story, something sweet or words of advice and end it with a toast.
It’s usually best to steer clear of inside jokes that no one will get. • Keep the focus on the bride and the groom. • Speak from your heart.
Your sister wants to hear from you…not words from someone else’s experience. If you were there, you probably remember my inability to make it through the first paragraph and my sister standing to give me a hug before I was even finished. Thank goodness for Kleenex, family and hugs. For the Gorgeous Bride, My Beloved Little Sister, on Her Wedding Day For those of you who don’t know, Ashley is my beloved and most favorite little sister.
And, Snoopy, thank you for asking me to be your maid of honor. This morning you said I’ve blessed you, but you have no idea how much of a blessing you’ve been to me. What can I say about Ashley that most of you don’t already know? She’s not just my sister; she’s one of my best friends. She’s the kind of person who sees humor in many situations and her unexpected wit will have you laughing in no time. She’s one of the few who has always been there to listen to me rant and rave about everything and nothing.
She’s beautiful inside and out. I am so blessed and grateful to be her sister. Seems like yesterday that we were redecorating Barbie’s playhouse, planning her absolute last wedding, sharing secrets and laughing over nothing in particular. Oh wait, that was yesterday. I remember debating over who made the better mermaid and, until Disney’s Beauty and the Beast came out, I thought I had won that one.
Upon seeing Belle wander the streets of her “little town, full of little people” with her nose stuck in her book, you stubbornly stood in the middle of the living room with your little hands on your hips and that look on your face and said, “There. There’s you.” Personally, I still think I’d make a better Aril than you, red hair and all, but I digress.
Thinking back to singing “Part of Your World” with you when we were kids, I see now that you’ve found a man whose world you’re now a part of and vice versa. After Jordan proposed and I had reminded her about those extravagant plans we had made with Barbie and Ken when we were kids, she said that she had changed her mind and wanted a simple, intimate and elegant wedding. She told me she wanted it to be more about the love that she and Jordan share, not about the most expensive dress she could find or the elaborate decorations covering the altar and aisle.
By the way, I know you’ve heard it a thousand times today, but Ashley, you truly look stunning and Jordan is a very lucky man. Jordan…You’ve become an integral part of our family’s system in the last year. It was easy to consider you a part of our group before you even started dating my sister. I’ve watched you grow in your faith and in your love for my sister.
You are becoming an amazing man of God. I’m so proud of you and it’s an honor to officially call you brother. Like all things in life, you get out of a marriage what you put into it. You’ve built your relationship on the most solid of foundations that is Christ and this is the beginning of your own happily ever after.
This is also when the real work begins. All the little every day things add up to a lifetime of happiness through both the good and the bad. Congratulations, Ashley and Jordan! Join me in toasting them – I wish you happiness, more love than you’ll know what to do with, and may God bless you in giving you a marriage more beautiful than your wedding.
I love you.
best dating my niece on her wedding day - An Open Letter To My Best Friend On Her Wedding Day
This poem was written from the heart while commuting to NY by train. It took a few days, and each day some fellow commuters would look at me with a concerned face because the tears would come each time I wrote a new line. I don't know what they were thinking, but they must have thought I was very unhappy. Little did they know I was happy and anxious at the same time... Eventually, I really did get a beautiful little granddaughter!
Today's my daughter's wedding day. And a wonderful thing it is; To see her so excited, So happy to be his. But once she was my baby girl; My first born, love of my life.
But now she is a woman, And just became his wife. Once she was my baby girl, Loved her daddy, and her toys; But then, I couldn't stop it, She grew up, and loved the boys. Today's my daughter's wedding day. How fast the time did go; From little feet, and Sesame Street, To a wedding gown it flowed.
From golden locks, and lollipops, She grew up straight and tall. From baby things, to a wedding ring; How I loved her through it all. And now she will go forward, To enter married life. To share the good and bad times, The happiness, and the strife. I wish them both, the best of luck; With a prayer that my eyes will see; That God will Bless them with a baby girl, Just like he gave to me... • by Faith S Barton • 2 months ago My daughter asked me to do a reading at her wedding, and when I found your poem, I knew it was the one!
I had guests tell me that the poem touched their hearts and brought tears to their eyes. I changed a couple of words to fit my needs, but all in all everyone was touched.
• by Bev D'Angiolillo • 1 year ago I have been looking for a poem to put in the front of the wedding scrapbook I am making for my daughter. This poem is perfect except for the last two lines since she is unable to have children. I changed it to something more suitable and can't wait to finish the album and give it to her. Thank you, Bev • by Linda Enderby • 2 years ago Amanda, your peom inspired me so much. On Saturday the 27th of August my beautiful daughter Genna married Shane. Like most mothers I wanted to do a reading and after seeing your poem I knew what to do.
I changed the words to show how I felt about my own daughter and also added a couple of verses to make it very personal to me. There were lots of tears from the guests included a few of the men.
Thank you for the inspiration. Xx
Kate and David decided on —with your help! As of last night, Saturday, November 5 was in the lead by just over a percentage point, and that's the date they picked!
*Yay! A fall wedding!*Now Kate's thinking about wedding colors, and she wants your input! She thinks she'd like a blue, a green, and a neutral, so I picked four of each for her. Which do you like? ©2018 Condé Nast. All rights reserved.
