Now, let us see this wedding anniversary speech sample from a loving husband. Let me tell you that it’s a 50th Wedding Anniversary Speech. But, you can still adapt it to fit your own speech nonetheless.
Let us kickoff by seeing what goes into the opening lines of all great speeches. You see, acknowledging the guest is one sure way of connecting with your audience.
How To Really Begin It All
So, you have to begin by telling everyone who you are and then proceed to thank your family and friends and others for honoring the invitation as well expressing gratitude to those who sent their well-wishes and gifts.
Having said that, let’s see how you can make effective use of this sample or example
“These past 50 years have not always been the easiest for us, and we’ve certainly had our ups and downs.’’
Did you realize how he began with a bang? That will make lots of wedding guests sit up and listen to you. Without a compelling introduction, you can't hold their attention and you won’t get anywhere.
Though this speaker says he’s being married for 50 years now, it hasn’t always been easy because there are many hurdles to cross once you are married.
Well, you can begin your introduction just as he has done. But, there are also so many ways of kick starting the opening line of your wedding anniversary speech. They are as follows
- One, you can begin with a love or marriage quote. Below are a few of such lines''A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.'' -Mignon McLaughlin
''Marriages are like fingerprints; each one is different and each one is beautiful.'' -Maggie Reyes
''Being in a long marriage is a little bit like that nice cup of coffee every morning – I might have it every day, but I still enjoy it.''-Stephen Gaines
''Happily ever after is not a fairy tale. It’s a choice.''-Fawn Weaver
''The older I get, the less time I want to spend with the part of the human race that didn’t marry me.'' -Robert Brault
- Second, you can start with your own thoughts on marriage.
- Third, you can start with a story or a joke.
- Fourth, you can start with a funny incident or anecdote.
- Fifth, you can begin by singing your own composition or even reciting poems.
These are just a few starters. You can brainstorm and come up with your own ideas. They are lots of great ideas lying dormant in your brain, so don’t look down on yourself. There is a hero that lies in you-no matter how you see yourself.
Right after you are through with a smashing introduction, you have to develop the body of your speech. And that’s where you put your ideas and tips together so they flow in a chronological order.
Now back to our example
'' I remember sitting behind you in English class our first year of high school. When you turned around and asked to borrow a pencil on that first day, I could barely find one in my bag because of how taken with you I was. I’m sure my hands were shaking when I handed it over, but you didn’t say a word about it. ''
Nice right? I think it’s full of emotion! How did he do that? He put together a story about how they met way back in high school. Did you realize that he managed to get some of us laughing when he said: ''I could barely find one in my bag because of how taken with you I was. I’m sure my hands were shaking when I handed it over, but you didn’t say a word about it.''
Sir, you too can weave into your account a few funny tales: true and fake stories alike. But make sure it relates to your speech.
- Aside that, you can also simply make your wedding anniversary speech one of gratitude or just saying thanks.
- You can also zoom into action by saying how life has been like since you got married.
- You can also tell the guests how your wife has helped you become a better person and the blessings you have got ever since you became husband and wife. Don’t hold anything back.
- Feel free to share what you both have been through and what you did to overcome all your adversities. I have said that this is a necessary step because your speech is also a tool or drug that helps to heal or revive the soul.
Well, if you are not clear, let me show you what I mean exactly. You see, there are some guests who are heartbroken. The newly-wed ones think they are going through hell and might want to quit. So telling those present how you overcame your own problems will encourage someone to still hold the dim torch a little longer, hoping that the light will shine brighter someday.
Speech continues below
''Though I didn’t have the courage to ask you on a date until senior year, I was overjoyed when you said yes.
Prom could not have been better. Thank you for agreeing to go with me, regardless of the fact that I wasn’t brave enough to approach you before then.
I will always look fondly upon that picture we took at the bottom of your staircase. I may not have been smiling in it, but I hope you know I was over the moon.
Our post-high school years weren’t the easiest, what with work and the kids and trying to make ends meet.
The only thing that got me through those long shifts and the horrible commute was knowing that you and the kids would be at home, waiting for me.
I may have been a mess, but I always felt that you were right there with me. I’m sorry if I haven’t made it clear before, but you’re my rock.''
Did you notice how the ideas are built like building blocks on one another? That’s how your ideas should be strung together.

You can too because I believe you can. I don’t know your level of experience regarding speaking in public. It doesn't matter if you have the skill or not.
