So, for today, I will do everything I can to come up with lots of examples and ideas so you can say something touching and beautiful about your loving wife.

First, I want you to get this right.
What we are going to look at is a 50th Wedding Anniversary Speech.
However, you can still glean great ideas from it and modify it for your own delivery even if this wedding anniversary is your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, and so on and so forth!
This Is What Your Wife, Family And Friends Expect You To Do First Of All…Ignore it and no one will enjoy your message
Let us kickoff by looking at the opening remarks.
''These past 50 years have not always been the easiest for us, and we’ve certainly had our ups and downs.’’
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. ''
What can you say about that paragraph? Did it touch your heart?
Well, it grabbed my heart right from the start and I guess it will make the wedding guests sit up and listen to the speaker.
Without a very compelling introduction, you won’t make any favorable impression.You can start off just as he has done.
Nevertheless, there are so many other ways of beginning well and I have tried to come up with some proven ideas.
- 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
''By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.''-Socrates
''Marriages are like fingerprints; each one is different and each one is beautiful.'' -Maggie Reye
''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
Now, let me ask you, is there any way you can put your exact thoughts and emotions into very beautiful words using any of those lines? I am sure you can.
So, please go get your note pad and paper and start thinking out loud.
You only have 10 minutes to complete it.
Okay, let me hit the pause button. I will be back when time’s up!
Right, I am back and you all came up with great answers.
Anyway, here is mine based on the sample we are looking at.
Mignon McLaughlin,…says that a successful marriage requires falling in love many times always with the same person.
Guess what? When I first saw Jennifer, I felt love and when we became friends, it felt like my whole life had been consumed by her love and just couldn’t imagine spending a day of my life without her.
Even though, these past 25 years have not always been the easiest for us as we certainly have had our ups and downs, I think the greatest thing I have learned in our journey as that to be loved and love is the best gift your spouse can ever give you.
I remember sitting behind her in Math class our second year of high school and when she turned around and asked to borrow a pencil on that first day I met her, I got so confused and could barely find one as I was shaking all over like a stranded jellyfish….
Do you notice how I borrowed the underlined words and made them mine? That’s exactly how to use marriage anniversary speech samples to pay tribute to your wife.
But, that’s not all…
Second,You can start with your thoughts on marriage based on your own experience.
Third, you can start with a funny incident or anecdote just as the writer did.
Fourth, you can start with a funny line or a joke.
''Marriage is an institution of three rings. Engagement ring, wedding ring and suffering.''
''Marriage is not a bed of roses. If it were, I would make my bed with roses.''
''If you don’t find a good wife or husband, you will grey in no time''- Jean Dan
''Marriage is basically like having a grown child who you are constantly having to find things for — shoes, wallet, keys, contacts.'' - Ciara Hill
''Marriage is a partnership — she finds the bugs and I have to kill them.'' - Scott King
Hope you can do that with the lines I have given you? Like I said, I don’t want you to suffer to come up with ideas, so
Here’s Another Short And Sweet Example
- Most couple don’t do this but if you can actually you’re your opening lines, that will awesome.
Just imagine how your wife, family and wedding guests would feel like if you sing the opening lines of the example I wrote with you to the beat of a well-known song!
How To Make Sure Your Ideas Make Sense And Flows Well
Right after you are through with a smashing introduction, you have to write your body and that’s what he has done here…
''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.''
If you go over that, you will notice that a part of our introduction: …I’m sure my hands were shaking when I handed it over, but you didn’t say a word about it. ''
flows into this part of the speech…
''Though I didn’t have the courage to ask you on a date until senior year, I was overjoyed when you said yes…
Likewise, any point you raise should flow in a chronological order.

Your photo album or marriage journal book or diary can be a rich source of ideas too!
Now, this is what I want you to do now if you are really serious about getting things right. Just write your responses and try to frame each answer into a single paragraph.
After that has been done, look it over and see which comments you want to delete and those you can work on further.
As you work on it, try as much as you can to paint pictures in your listener’s mind. In other words, let them feel as though they are watching a movie and you can do that by using similes and metaphors.
How do we use them to achieve our goals?
Suppose we want to make portions of our speech very memorable using similes, then we can do something by changing the following lines:
''Though I didn’t have the courage to ask you on a date until senior year, I was overjoyed when you said yes…..
''Though I didn’t have the courage like a shrill wind to ask you on a date partly because I had this goose bumps and feared you might say no to my proposal and that would have made me faint like a ghost trapped in a hot air balloon….''
Do you see how I did that using the word like and packing the extract with emotions?
A mediocre writer might have just written:… to ask you on a date partly because I was nervous.
Now, compare nervous to feeling faint like a ghost trapped in a hot-air balloon and you will get a clear sense of what i am driving home.
Your writing skill in inconsequential here all you have do is to stick to all that I am sharing here.
As you keep at it, you will realize in no time that you have drafted several versions of your speech and all you have to do at this point is to choose which one you want to go with.

blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4 Yes, this will be the blessing
for the man who fears the Lord.
- 5 May the Lord bless you from Zion;

all the days of your life.

peace be on Israel.
