Silver Wedding Speeches

Here's to the spouse

Family and friends I would now like to make a toast
Here's to the spouse that's wonderful
Here's to the spouse that's true
Here's to the spouse that rules my heart
In other words, here's to you!

Today being our silver anniversary

Family and friends,
today being our silver anniversary I supposed you would expect
that I should be silver tongued as
well and that I should give a brilliant speech. The truth of the
matter is that I am so touched I am
finding it hard to speak at all.

Some of you can remember

Some of you can remember looking back to where Mum and Dad began their relationship. You may have had the opportunity to see them as they were in the beginning, as they anticipated the days ahead of them, wondering what they would find in each other. This anniversary especially, is the perfect time to slowly leaf through those memories they have made together. They are the moments that brought them to where they are today, still anticipating, still writing the pages that they will remember tomorrow.

In our lifetimes, we are gifted

In our lifetimes, we are gifted with a limited number of true "landmark moments". They start small, like learning to tie your shoe or learning to drive a car or throwing your graduation cap into the air. But then, as we grow, they grow too. They grow in power and significance. There is that perfect landmark moment when you look into the eyes of the most loving, caring, and giving individual that you've ever known and realize you've found true love. A special love of longing that allows you to smile from the heart. A love that is a companion and melts your very soul. That moment and the commitment which follows should be celebrated to its fullest. And so I wanted to ensure that this particular moment, 25 plus years ago, does not pass unrecognized.

The world has changed in so many ways since your wedding and yet, people are still choosing to get married. And I believe one reason is because they have seen people like you two demonstrate how well it can work.
