Couple 2

 

Believe it or not, writing a great wedding anniversary speech for a friend or family is the best gift you can ever give because words never die.

However, as you know that isn’t an easy task.

If it were, you wouldn’t have come here to seek for help.

I know, you have lots of questions on your mind about how best to write what’s on your mind.

The good news is I have all the answers you’re looking for so don’t worry at all.

 

Why These Perfect Samples Will Help Calm Your Nerves For Good!

 

Last time, we looked at how to get ideas for your wedding anniversary speech.


In that piece, we talked about the power of speech samples but we didn’t look at look how they can help you write what’s on your heart.

 

So, today, we are going to look at one of those masterpieces so you don’t spend so much time putting your exact thoughts and emotions into beautiful words!

 

On this blog and elsewhere, I have been hammering home on the need to use models whenever you have to write any kind of speech because...

  1. You are able to change a few words here and there and make it your own
  1. Should you decide to do something entirely unique, you can copy the ideas, words and phrases you want to add to your wedding anniversary message
  1. Finally, it’s a time saver if you have a few days to the anniversary reception and you suddenly realize you don’t have a speech ready or you are asked to give one at the last- minute!

 

As a speechwriter, I know hard it is to put down your exact thoughts on paper, which is why this afternoon, I have this nice gift for you.

 

This Can Still Help You Out!

 

Guess what in the box?

 

A beautiful 60th wedding anniversary speech by Jeff Sauer.

 

Before we dive right in, I just want you to know this one thing.

I know you might probably be looking for 1st, 2nd, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th, 50th… marriage speech sample

 

But, you can’t go wrong with this 60th anniversary example as it will not only open your eyes to what goes into every speech, but also help you say what you really want to say without trying so hard!

 

So, please go grab your note pad and a pen and put on your thinking cap as I help you out.

 

Do This And The Guests Will Love Every Bit of Your Message

 

Have you ever read a book you couldn’t put down? If you have, then you can be sure that an awesome speech is more like reading a book that hooks you in from the very first page!

 

I don’t know about you but if you have had the chance to listen to great speeches, then one thing that grabs your attention is the opening line.

 

Take this example from our example and you will understand why.

 

Here you go:

 

Here is what Jeff said when he opened the speech.


'' Hello, my name is Jeff Sauer, Grandson of Norb and Lenore, and welcome to our celebration of 60 years of marriage between Lenore and Norby, or as we affectionately call them; Lenorby.


I will be your master of ceremonies for this event, and I hope that you’ll soon find that you are in good hands. Grandpa chose me to host this event because he says I remind him of a young Bob Hope.


I have no idea what that means, but I am taking it as a compliment.
Enough about me. The real reason why we are here is to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Norbert T Koch.''

 

To make our analyses worth it, I’d like to ask you a simple question: what do you make of that sample?

My friend, you have just 5 minutes to tell me what’s on your mind. You might go up and look it over.

Well, your time is up. By the way, here are my observations:

 

The writer began by telling everyone who he was. '' Hello, my name is Jeff Sauer, Grandson of Norb and Lenore’’ Lesson learned: You should also do same.

 

He also reveals why they are at the party after welcoming the guests:  The real reason why we are here is to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Norbert T Koch.''

 

Lessons learned: Just follow what he did.

 

I hope you have some take points to take away from those ideas.

On no account should you assume that everyone at the anniversary party will know who you are!

Always tell them who you are and your relationship with the couple!

 

 

That being said, let me let you in on his introduction

 

See it below

 

''60 years! 6 – 0. That’s not a typo. 60 years! That is a long time for two people to be together. In fact, this type of longevity is almost unheard of in modern times. This is a testament to their long lasting love and devotion.
To see how they made it this far, let me give you some insight into how things came to be.

 

Do you think this is a great introduction? I think it’s very good but not extraordinary.

But, the guests will love it because I am sitting here and just imagining how Jeff uttered the words: ''60 years! 6 – 0. That’s not a typo. 60 years!

A good actor will bring the house down when he says that.

 

What would you have written instead if you were in Jeff’s shoes?

 

This would have been my opening remarks

 

Can You Write Something Like This?

 

60 years is such a long time for great things to be accomplished and I think my parents greatest accomplishment is the love they have for each other because life is all about being loved and be loved in return!

How does that compare with that above example? Excellent? Unique? You be the judge.

 

Here Are 3 Ways To Start Your Introduction…Which One Will You Go For?

 

The truth is there are more than three ways to start on a positive note but I just want to give you what I am going to share.

 

Do you want to have them?

 

  1. You can start with a joke or funny one-liners but make sure you tie it to the theme of your speech.

 

Here are a couple you can use

 

-''In marriage, a woman tend to do all the shopping and a man all the working…if you allow your wife to do both, your blood pressure will go high''-    Unknown

 

-''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

 

''The best way to get most husbands to do something is to suggest that perhaps they're too old to do it.''
- Ann Bancroft

 

''Marriage is a three-ring circus. First the engagement ring, the the wedding ring, then the suffering.''
- Milton Berle

 

The best part is you can also start with a good story about the couple’s life or any other story you have heard but make sure the message of that tale resonates with your marriage anniversary speech. People love stories so you can’t afford not to use this tip.

 

  1. That’s not all, you can use love or marriage quotes like what I used for my own example:

 

''The greatest thing you will learn is to love and be loved in return''-Eden Ahbez

 

''Marriage has no guarantees, if that’s why you are looking for, then go live with a car battery''-Erma Bombeck

 

''Where there is love there is life.''– Mahatma Gandhi

 

"When we got married I told my wife 'If you leave me, I'm going with you.' And she never did." 

— James Fineous McBride

 

Any of those quotes can help you so put down what you think can help and go back to read my example plus Jeff’s and try to build your intro from there.

 

Right now, I want us to continue with our wedding or marriage anniversary speech sample as we have a lot to learn.Remember, my mission is to help things fairly easy for you.

So, don’t put down your glasses yet.

 

Here’s the continuation...

 

Norbert Thomas Koch and Mary Lenore Leroux had modest upbringings. Norb grew up in North Minneapolis, back in a time where it was safe to drive through the neighborhood with your windows down. Lenore grew up in the town of Hamel, on a farm that is now a high school and a housing development.

 

Due to some unfortunate turns in life, Norb was tasked with helping to prove for his family from an early age. In order to make ends meet, he had to make money in whatever way he could, including selling newspapers and shoveling sidewalks.

 

One can only assume that working at such an early age instilled him with a great work ethic, and the drive necessary to achieve his own financial independence.

 

Lenore was a farm girl, and still has the green thumb to prove it. Over the years I have heard many great stories about Grandma’s days on the farm, but I think my favorite is the story about when she took the truck for a spin with her sister Jeanette when grandma wasn’t yet a teenager.''

 

Couple3

 What Ideas Did You Get From Going Over That Piece?

 

Well, if you read over this piece Jeff talks about Norbert’s and Lenore’s upbringing and how life was like for them.

 

If you want to take a similar route, that’s fine.

 

If not, then I have plenty of ideas for you.

 

Before I do that, you have to go back to ask yourself who you are to the couple.

A brother, sister, parents, son or a daughter?

 

With that at the back of your mind, ask yourself if the information you have about them would be sufficient to write a good piece!

 

Here’s the deal!

 

Do You Want To Go For The ‘’Body’’ Or The ‘’Skeleton?’’

 

Just like Jeff, you too can write a heartwarming speech by putting down a wonderful story line.

 

Thankfully, there are proven ways of getting ideas for the body and then organizing it to make sure they flow in a logical order so your speech is not hard to follow.

 

Here are 5 Proven Ways to Put Your Ideas Together in a Way That Will Make You Loved, Appreciated and Respected!

 

  1. Suppose, you are writing for your parents, youcan begin with a quote about parental love or the love of grandparents or quotes about love and work it out from there.

 

Let’s see how we can do that by first looking up a few quotes.


 ''One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad.'' - Jim DeMint

 


'' Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent. '' - Bob Keeshan

 

'' To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself. ''- James E. Faust

 

'' At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.''-Jane D. Hull

 

''The best students come from homes where education is revered: where there are books, and children see their parents reading them.''-Leo Buscaglia

 

''Being kind is the most important thing I've ever been taught. That's what my parents always told me - more important than ambition or success is being kind to people. The cornerstone of my life. What I aspire to is to be kind.'' -Rafe Spall

 

I can’t do this without you. So, let me again ask you which of those quotes you want to use for this assignment.

 

Ok…a lot of you have voted for quote # 3:

 

''To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself.'' - James E. Faust

 

and quote # 6:

 

'' Being kind is the most important thing I've ever been taught. That's what my parents always told me - more important than ambition or success is being kind to people. The cornerstone of my life. What I aspire to is to be kind.'' -Rafe Spall

 …so they are the best candidates.

 

 

Here’s what happens when both quotes are combined to create something new

 

Here Is A Very Short And Sweet Wedding Anniversary Speech Example

 

'' Dad and mom, when I became a mom for the very first time, you came over to visit and I remember you told me that being a caring mom requires that making my husband my first priority and the little child the next.

I didn’t understand what you really meant when you said that.

When we had our fourth child, I realized your words were worth more than gold.

Mark and Jennifer are about to marry in a year’s time and they keep telling me that your advice is the best gift they have ever gotten….

 

I love you mom. I love you dad and I truly appreciate all that you have done for me over the years.''

 

Couple

 

I hope you too can write something with the other quotations. You just have to paraphrase them to make them yours.

 

Second, you can simply thank your parents, wife, husband, friend, brother, sister, grandparents for what they have done for you and just end it. That way, it will be short and heartfelt.

 

Third, you can use stories (fiction) to write up something memorable. Take the Titanic story for example.


If you want to use that and other stories, you have to draw lessons from them and use them creatively.

 

Fourth, if you are married, then, you can tell how your parents or grandparents’ marriage has been a great model.

 

Fifth, you can also begin on a hilarious note by including jokes or funny comments made by the couple. But, still make sure it is in line with what you want the audience to hear. Never ever go offbeat.

 

Now, let us go back to listen to our kind brother, Jeff.

 

'' When the time came, Norb served our country and defended the free world in the Second World War. He was stationed in the Pacific and had one of the most dangerous positions in the entire Air Force. Fortunately, he survived without a scratch and made it back stateside a true hero, armed with an arsenal of ambition and some great bedtime stories for his grandchildren.

 

Upon arrival back to the states, Grandpa enrolled in college at the University of Minnesota, where he played baseball while completing his college degree.

It was through baseball that Norb fatefully met Lenore, and it was through persistence that Grandma finally let him take her out on a date. After some time of courtship, they were married.

 

Grandpa sold life insurance and made quite a living for himself. I would go into details of individual deals and the perseverance involved with making it in the life insurance business, but I don’t want to put everyone to sleep.

 

While I have been blessed with the ability to find humor in everyday things, it’s almost impossible to keep a crowd excited when talking about Life Insurance. I’m not a miracle worker here!

However, I do know first-hand that Grandpa must have been really good at his profession, because he has a wealth of trophies corresponding to his various achievements.

 

  • Salesman of the year – (13 times).
  • President of the Minneapolis Association of Life Underwriters.
  • The George Washington Founding Father of Modern Life Insurance Sales Lifetime Achievement Award. (OK, I made that one up)


You name it, and he’s got a trophy for it. During his day, Norb was like the Arnold Palmer of insurance sales (or for the younger crowd, he was the Tiger Woods of his field).


Insurance aside, when you look at his trophy case, you’ll also notice that he was once the Tiger Woods of Minnesota Golf. This guy has more trophies than I can count. There is so much bronze on his shelves that the only thing missing is a bronze statue of Norby himself!

 

Proving that they are meant to be together, Grandma has amassed herself quite a few trophies as well.

 

In fact, rumor has it that she can beat Grandpa on the links nowadays. Both can shoot their age on the golf course, which I find quite impressive. I would need to be in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest man before I could ever accomplish that feat!''

 

Did you notice how the writer talks about their individual achievements as part of the body of his speech?

 

Can you look over short sample and find the one thing that will make the wedding guests laugh out loud?

 

This Will Make You Laugh Out Loud!

 

I think it’s: '' There is so much bronze on his shelves that the only thing missing is a bronze statue of Norby himself!

 

I almost fell off my seat when I read this part of this beautiful speech. Put down funny memories you can recall and incorporate them into your message and it will make things very memorable.

 

Never forget to share their good and bad times and how they made it through it all as such accounts are the heartbeat of all wedding speeches: ''Like any long-term relationship, it takes work to keep things running smoothly on a day-to-day basis. I’m not going to lie and say that everything has been good every step along the way, but the good far outweighs the bad, and overall the past 60 years have been great!''

 

Well, But Jeff tells us that their greatest trophies are their children and grandchildren.

 

You better hear it from the horse’s own mouth:

 

''But their real trophies are their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; all two hundred of us. Well, maybe not 200, but there are quite a few descendants in the room today. That’s what happens when you have 8 children! ‘’

 

I hope by now you agree with me that stories are the perfect ingredient that all great speech writers use to build their case.

 

 

How To End Your Speech So The Guests Compliment You

 

A perfect closing might make good use of the following ideas

 

  1. Thanking your parents or the couple for their love over the years and how that has made you a much better person. See what Jeff said: ''As you can see, it is obvious that Grandma and Grandpa love…

 

Over the past 60 years they have instilled this love into everyone around them and they have served as a catalyst for all of our life’s achievements.

While nothing can take the place of two sets of grandparents, I feel you did everything you could to make up that gap for me.

 

Thank you for everything you have done. I love you so much. Happy 60th anniversary.
Love, your little Jeffy.''

 

  1. You can say what your best wishes are for them as seen below

 

For Parents

 

All things grow with love, and nothing more so than your beautiful relationship. Love you Mom and Dad.

 

Mom and Dad:  You make this whole marriage thing look easy. May you continue to grow in your love for each other. Happy Anniversary from all of your children.

 

With every passing year, you’re the living embodiment of a great marriage, mother and father. Happy Anniversary from your favorite son (or daughter)!

 

Your love, dedication, and commitment to one another is truly an inspiration to all of us kids. Congratulations on your years of marriage.

 

Wishing you more joy, laughter and happiness in the years to come. Happy Anniversary!

 

For Sister

 

Sister, now and forever, all the best to one of the happiest couples I know! Loveliest Anniversary Wishes!

 

Wishing you more years of love and happiness to my favorite Sister and Brother-in-law. Have a wonderful anniversary!

 

It seems like just yesterday you were walking down the aisle. Congrats!

 

To my beautiful sister, may the love you found together years ago continue to grow and grow. Happy, happy anniversary to a charming couple!

 

For Brother

 

To my dear brother, the love you share is a precious gift.

 

Time and you two go well together my brother. Happy Wedding Anniversary!

 

For Friends

 

The three keys to a lasting marriage are respect, communication and love.

 

All our love and best wishes on your Anniversary! Three cheers!

 

Love makes the world go round, and in your case, it seems to be spinning at a good clip. Best wishes.

 

  1. You can end with a blessing from the scriptures. My favorite is Psalm 128

 

 

Psalm 128

             A song of ascents.

  1. Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
        who walk in obedience to him.
    You will eat the fruit of your labor;
        blessings and prosperity will be yours.
    Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
        within your house;
    your children will be like olive shoots
        around your table.
    Yes, this will be the blessing
        for the man who fears the Lord.
  2. May the Lord bless you from Zion;
        may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
        all the days of your life.
    May you live to see your children’s children—
        peace be on Israel.
  1. Compliment them sincerely and wish them well in the years ahead as Jeff has done for us once again!

Wedding (Marriage) Anniversary Speech Ideas and Tips

 

Do You Want Your 1st, 2nd, 5th, 10th, 20th, 25th,  ...50th Wedding Anniversary Speech To Sound Very Inspiring And Very Memorable?  But, Don’t How To Do Just That?

 

Just Follow This Simple And Clever Plan And You Will Bring The House Down!

 

Couple3

 

 Whoever told you writing a great wedding anniversary speech was so easy told you a lie.

 

I have been writing awesome wedding speeches for a very long time and I must admit that when I stare at the blank sheet I sometimes find it a real struggle to come up with an intro that grabs the heart and make the wedding guests want to listen to every word you have to say.

 

So, you don’t have to take things very lightly when you are asked by your friend or a relative to say something at their wedding anniversary party, else you will only embarrass yourself.

 

Thankfully, over the years, I have developed an easy-to-follow system that helps just anyone to find the right words, ideas and phrases so you can put down a heartfelt anniversary speech very fast and easy.

 

So, stay right here as I walk you through everything you need to know about putting your exact emotions and thoughts into very beautiful words.

 

Do you have a note pad and a paper handy?Here are things you have to consider before you jot down what’s inside your head.

 

These 3 Must-Do Things Hold The Key To Your Success

 

You see, there are four components that make a great piece and they are:

  1. How to get the right words and ideas to write your own speech
  2. How to use those ideas to put down what’s on your mind and make it sound good
  3. As well as practicing and
  4. delivering it

 

Today, we are going to look at nugget number 1: How to get the right words and ideas to write your own speech

 

This Causes Nervous And Here’s How To Calm Your Nerves.

 

Before I show you what those ideas are, let me remind you about this one thing that prevents many wedding speakers from accomplishing their dreams of giving great marriage anniversary speeches that will earn them favorable attention and praise.

 

You see, the mind plays a key role in whatever you want to achieve in life.

 

Sadly, however, may people let fear reside in their mind instead of holding on to the dream they carry in their hearts.

 

You might be probably wondering how you are going to execute this beautifully since you might have failed to impress the last time you were asked to say some few words when it was your birthday.

 

Well, I understand what you went through and I guess it was not too easy for you.Believe it or not, those same emotions of fear will show up this time too.

It will because you couldn’t conquer it the first it came to ‘’wine and dine’’ with you. The good news is that you can do something about it this time.

By constantly holding in your mind’s eye, this picture of speaking confidently with flair and poise, you are going to have this remarkable feeling of energy flowing through your spirit and soul, and it would eventually build up your self-esteem and confidence.

 

You can write the most awesome wedding anniversary speech ever, but if you lack the guts to speak before an audience, you are going to fail woefully.

 

Being asked to write similar speeches for many people across the globe demands that I give each one of my clients value for money, and in doing so, I do all I can to make sure each piece is unique despite the fact that the contents are similar in tone and substance.

 

There are so many ways I use to accomplish my purpose and you too can just look over my shoulders by copying how I go about things.

 

Now, Here’s What I Do Before I Put Pen To Paper…And Why You Should Do Same

 

 

First, consider who your wedding anniversary speech is intended for.

 

Is it for…

- a friend?

-a brother or sister?

- your mom and dad (parents?)

- your uncle or aunt?

- a neighbor?

- your grandparents?

 

Next, you have to decide what angle you want to go for.  

 

By that I mean the theme or style of your speech.

 

  1. Do you want to talk about how the couple’s relationship has evolved over the years or you simply want to tell them how much your wife or husband or brother or sister or parents?Do you want to share the struggles the couple have endured to reach thus far?

 

  2. You can also simply express gratitude as part of your tribute or tell a story (whether real or imagined) and tie it to your own wedding anniversary speech.

 

Next, you have to put down what speech style you want to go for.

 

There are so many styles to pick from.

 

Let me ask you this. Do you want to give a…

Narrative piece?

Humorous piece?

A narrative or story telling episode?

Poetic wedding anniversary speech or message?

Song-like speech? (That’s what makes most speeches memorable)

Combination of these styles?

Whatever style you go for should match your personality and demeanor!

Here Are The Best Places To Easily Look For Great Ideas, Heartfelt And Beautiful Words!

 

Have any idea what they are? Not sure?

You don’t have to worry because I have got your back!

Well, the best place to look at for ideas is your own mind.

 

How?

 

I am simply talking about beautiful memories.

 

What comes to mind when you think about the couple’s love life or your own love life?

 

Write as many of them that comes to you as you reflect on how life has been for them.

 

Please share the good times and bad as that’s what will touch the hearts of the wedding guests and also make your delivery very memorable.

 

Your assignment: With a paper and pen in hand, sit still and put down what runs through your mind as you ponder about how life has been like for both of you or the couple. Put down highlights and then support your points with some details.

 

Do You Enjoy Watching Movies…?

 

Then, you can get neat ideas from romantic films. I know it will be time wasting to sit through even an hour long movie to get the right words.

 

So, my suggestion is this…

 

Go right now to any of the video sharing platforms or websites and input in the search box: wedding anniversary speech for a friend or brother or sister or parents or uncles or aunt or whatever and watch as many as you can.

 

As you do that, put down ideas, words and phrases that really touched your heart or even made you laugh and consider if it will be very convenient to use them.

Even if you don’t find them relevant, they can inspire you to come up with your own unique ideas by meditating on them.

 

How God Can Help You Write A Short and Sweet Speech

 

Go to the songs of Solomon in the bible and you will find plenty of love notes to help you out.

There are some verses from other part of God’s word as well.

 

Here are a few…

  • He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD." ~ Proverbs 18:22 

 

  • "I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine." ~Song of Solomon 8:3

 

"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life." ~ Proverbs 31:10-12

 

'' Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned." ~ Song of Solomon 8:6

 

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

 

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails." ~ I Corinthians 13:4-8

 

Any of these scriptures can form the intro of our speech.

 

I think you’ll agree with me when I say that songs and poems can also do you a lot of good.

 

Take for example this song by   Natalie Collie’s This Will Be An Everlasting Love.

 

Here are excerpts of the lyrics

…Loving you
Is some kind of wonderful
Because you've shown me
Just how much you care
You've given me the thrill of a lifetime
And made me believe you've got more thrills to spare, oh

 

This will be
And everlasting love, oh, yes, it will now

 

You've brought a lot of sunshine into my life
You've filled me with happiness I never knew
You gave me more joy than I ever dreamed of
And no one, no one can take the place of you…

 

Can You Write Something Short And Heartfelt Like This Using Your Favorite Love Song?

 

This is how I would do it if I were writing using the lyrics of that song.

 

Eric and Millie’s love seems to be an everlasting love

 

You know what? There have been high and low moments in their lives and as you can imagine there are days they felt their journey was not worth it.    

But, they always reminded me that what kept them going in good times was this scripture they heard some 28 years ago when they got married and it is from I Corinthians 13:13 which says that now these three remain: faith, hope and love but the greatest is love.

 

Their lives have shown that love is truly the greatest gift they have passed on to their children and other relatives.

 

For me, they have shown me how much they care and that makes me believe that life is all about loving someone and being loved in return

That sense of purpose helped bring sunshine into my life and my own marriage when

 

I am sure you noticed (see underlined words above) how we used Natalie Cole’s words to write our own short marriage anniversary speech.

Can you do that too? I bet you can because I have given you everything you need to succeed. You just have to believe you can!

Marriage or love quotes can help too.

 

Couple

 Do You Access To These Golden Keys?

 

The easiest and best way to make your words heartfelt is to consult wedding anniversary speech samples.

They are by far the best investment you can make when it comes to writing and giving an awesome speech.

Yet, a lot of folks out of sheer ignorance don’t use them as they should and that makes them waste precious time thinking of what to say.

 

It’s for this reason I want you to see this brilliant sample because it has great ideas you can borrow from and adapt to making your own speech very unique.

 

Jeff gave this at his grandparent’s diamond wedding anniversary.

 

Though this is geared towards a 60th anniversary celebration, you can always modify based on the facts you have gathered and what speech type you want to give.

 

This model is quite long so this will just be an excerpt…

 

''Hello, my name is Jeff Sauer, Grandson of Norb and Lenore, and welcome to our celebration of 60 years of marriage between Lenore and Norby, or as we affectionately call them; Lenorby…Enough about me. The real reason why we are here is to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Norbert T Koch.

 

60 years! 6 – 0. That’s not a typo. 60 years! That is a long time for two people to be together. In fact, this type of longevity is almost unheard of in modern times. This is a testament to their long lasting love and devotion…Norbert Thomas Koch and Mary Lenore Leroux had modest upbringings.

 

Norb grew up in North Minneapolis, back in a time where it was safe to drive through the neighborhood with your windows down. Lenore grew up in the town of Hamel, on a farm that is now a high school and a housing development.

 

Due to some unfortunate turns in life, Norb was tasked with helping to prove for his family from an early age. In order to make ends meet, he had to make money in whatever way he could, including selling newspapers and shoveling sidewalks….

 

One can only assume that working at such an early age instilled him with a great work ethic, and the drive necessary to achieve his own financial independence.

 

Now, let us see how to carve something brief from what that smart guy wrote.

 

Here we go

 

Welcome everyone. Thanks for coming.

I am Dan, son of Jennifer and Austin and you are welcome to the 25th wedding anniversary of my parents. (Do you see how different this intro is from the original version?)

 

That’s not all...please let’s get on with what we have to say…

 

Jennifer and Austin thought they would never get this far. My parents tell me how tough things were a few years after they got married.

You see, dad had a high-paying job and my mom agreed to be a stay-at-home mom because her work was demanding.

 

Things were pretty good the following years after my parents had made that decision.

One day, dad returned home from work looking so worried. The reason being that he had been laid off from work..

 

The years that followed were very tough.

We were thrown out of our apartment and we had barely enough to live on...

 

Do you realize how i am weaving my own story in place of that example?

 

That's exactly how to use wedding anniversary speech samples to get something beautiful down on the white page.
