Do You Have A Wedding Anniversary Memory Book, Diary, Photo Album or Journal?
Which of those resources do you have?
Pouring out your heart out shouldn’t be so hard if you have any of them.
As an example, let’s take a wedding journal or memory book and see how that can make our assignment much easier.
Have you recorded your thoughts and wishes all through the years you have been together?
If you have, you will realize that most marriage or unions can be broken down into the following parts:
- Getting to know each other
- Pre-marriage activities or festivities
- Tying the knot
- The first few years
- The middle years
- The later years
If you have not been married for a very long time, then you can ignore the last three portions
Now, this is what I want you to do if for example you want to come up with a narrative type of wedding anniversary speech.
- Getting to know each other… you simply have to write down what happened back then
- For Pre-marriage festivities… you simply have to write down what happened back then
- Tying the knot… you simply have to write down what happened on your wedding day
- For the first… you simply have to write down what happened on your wedding day
- Do same for the middle years and later years…
Suppose, we have already put down our thoughts to all 6 ideas, then…this would be…
A Short And Sweet Marriage Anniversary Speech For Your Husband
Words cannot adequately describe how grateful I am to have you in life. Prior to this day, I spent so many precious moments poring over old photos, trying to relive every moment of our wonderful marriage and then it suddenly dawned on me that your love has been the gift of my life.
It seems like only yesterday, I first met you on the University of Mabry and I could tell you were destined to be forever.
And yes I was right because we felt this instant connection with each other as though we had been friends for a lifetime
There you were looking so cute…
Did you notice how I used point number 1: Getting to know each other… to write this brief extract?
I could go on and on by following the six-point guide I showed you.
Following that will just make your writing flow from the tip of your pen.
So, go up this page and provide answers next to them and start from there in that order.
What Memories Do You Have?
Closely connected to the above idea are memories of your relationship.
Memories are undoubtedly the heartbeat of all great speeches.
To give your presentation with poise and confidence, you need to tell lots of stories when you are giving your speech.
- Put down stories about how you met him
- Stories about your dating and courtship
- What happened when you got married?
- How has life been like ever since you both tied the knot?
If you have been married for a very long time, you can add
- What have been your accomplishments?
- What are the good and bad moments?
- What are you looking forward to in the coming years?
Remember, you don’t need to tell lots of stories else it will be very long and winding and your narrative will be hard to follow.
Just stick to a few details and do make sure they follow one another in a coherent and logical manner.
You might want to include a few funny anecdotes as that will make your whole message interesting and very memorable.
Do You Still Remember The Words You Said At Your Wedding Reception?
Sometimes, you need not look far to get something down on paper.
Let me ask you: Do you still have your bride speech or do you still remember portions of it?
Did you know you can use parts of that account to craft your own speech?Don’t worry if you didn’t make one or have forgotten it.
Now, let use a short bride speech and then we will see how we can make something out of it.
Here you have it:
'' After pursuing my P.H.D I found a good job and had everything I ever need to give me that personal comfort and satisfaction.
As the years rolled by with no one to hold on in hard times, I felt this void in my heart and I lived like a nun.
And so, when Mike came into my life, I experienced a deep sense of joy that flowed through my heart and veins like a never flowing stream.
Well, Mike has been a friend for almost 5 years now but I must admit that I just wanted to know if he was the right guy for me. And I was the right lady for him.
I am someone who believes in the sanctity of marriage and I just didn’t want anything or anyone to toy with my heart.
After he had left college, he told me he loved but I turned this great guy down. Wanting to impress me, he sent me a flower on Valentine’s Day but I was still not convinced that he could feel the void in my life.
Besides, I wanted to test the strength of his heart and character.
But my Mike would never give up on me.
On my last birthday, he arrived looking cute.
I guess he wanted to impress me.
To cut a long story short, we wined and dined and he came over when everyone had left and we talked for like 2 hours.
At a point, he was drenched in sweat and his voice grew rather hoarse as he held my hands.
He got down on one knee and told me that he still wanted to be my best friend.
Suddenly I felt a bit faint, but I smiled and accepted his proposal.
After, he breathed a big sigh of relief and it felt as if he had won a marathon in record time in an empty stadium.
Today, the story is different.
He’s relaxed but I am drenched in sweat as I give my speech.
Kidding aside, I feel like a princess on this beautiful day.
Mike thanks for agreeing to marry me.
Your proposal took my breadth and my brains away. Far away…''
It’s an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are. I’ve been waiting, for what seems like a very long time, to get beyond what I am.
I always thought that there was this one perfect person for everybody in the world, you know, and when I found you, all my fears and worries faded away.
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again…
Now, we are best friends eternally and we will have to cross so many rivers and climb hills to get to where we want to be.
But, I know we will get there.''
Now, here’s what I came up with based on the above speech.
''Mike tried to impress me the very first time we met on campus back at University.
Later we got married, and I thought he might stop doing that.
But, he’s impressed me each day.What a wonderful friend he has been all these years.
It’s an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are. And I think Mike is that guy my soul had been carving for since I made a decision to settle down.
Mike, every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Now, we are best friends eternally and we still have to cross so many rivers and climb hills to get to where we want to be. But, I know we will get there sooner than later. I love you Mike!’’
Did you see how we borrowed a few words from that original speech and simply made it one meant for an anniversary milestone? Can you do same? I hope you can.
