Now, let’s look at…

 

This Short Brother of the Bride Wedding Toast Sample/ Template

 

I would like to thank hitched.co.uk for this brilliant example.

 

I would like to start by saying, on behalf of my Mum, Stephanie and myself, what a real pleasure it is to welcome Simon's family, our family, friends and everyone in between that that join us here in celebrating Hannah and Simon's special day.  I know that many of you have travelled a long way to be here. 

 

 I'd like to say a particular thank you to my Aunty Kath who has a phobia of car journeys and would have needed to be sedated to make it down from Yorkshire.  I'm glad to see you made it and that they managed to bring you round in time for the ceremony!

 

I'd also like to say thank you for everyone involved in making today special – I know that over the past year Hannah & Simon have put in a huge amount of planning and effort to make today a relaxed and laid back celebration and I am sure you will all agree it has been an incredible day so far.

 

It seems that even the weather has been planned to ensure the perfect day.

Although this a joyous occasion, I cant let this moment pass without saying we all know we would all rather have our Dad up here today giving this speech. 

 

I know that if were still with us he couldn't be any more proud of Hannah than me and Mum are right now at the fantastic person she has grown up to be.  I know too that he would have been delighted in the prospect of having Simon as his Son in Law.

 

As I have the pleasure of being the first of the speeches I get to be the first to officially congratulate the happy couple and to tell Hannah how very beautiful I think she looks today. I don't want people to think I am showing favouritism. – Simon…you look magnificent too!!

 

As Hannah's brother, it has been a true privilege to be able to walk my sister down the isle today and watch her exchange vows at Hullavington church.  The church has a lot of memories for the **** family and it was fitting for it to be the starting point for such a new happy chapter in our family history.

 

Standing up here now looking at Hannah I can hardly believe that she's my baby sister!  There are nearly 10 years between us and id always wondered if she was a happy accidental addition to the family – Well as it turns out Hannah had been planned all along and it was me that was the unexpected one!!

 

It is fitting at times like this to think back on notable moments in my sister’s life that have impacted on me.

 

 

 

My sister has never been one to crave the center of attention but when she does she does it in style.  As a small child she decided to wander off in her green quilted romper suit for a walk on her own. 

 

Not until half the village had been drafted in to look for her and we were all beginning to panic did she decide to toddle back home as if nothing had happened!

 

Simon, you will be pleased to know that she has not continued this Houdini act into adult life!

 

There is also episode in her early years regarding chocolate buttons that Hannah has asked me not to mention.  On account of the fact that she has far more embarrassing stories about me I will honour that wish – but I'm sure if you buy her a glass of champagne later she'd be potty not to tell you!

 

I have it on good authority that Simon still has a packet of buttons tucked away for those difficult occasions!

 

It seems only yesterday that I was driving Hannah to primary school in my first car –  a rusting 1975 Vauxhall Shoveit with tasteful red vinyl seats. 

 

Hard to believe now that my tall sis used to need a cushion to see out the window and to stop her from slipping off the seat!  She used to love those journeys listening to my rather dodgy collection of 80’s tapes which is why to this day she has a love of Duran Duran than isn't normal for a 28 year old!

 

Growing up with an older brother clearly has had an effect over the years as my sister is fully aware of the plot of Star Wars and has a love of action movies over romantic comedies – a fact that I think Simon should thank me for on a daily basis.

 

I have to say that she wasn't a tom boy though as she also had My Little Pony collection large enough to open a stables with and was a huge fan of Boy George with a life sized poster adorning her bedroom wall!  I would like to stress for the record that neither of these traits were anything to do with my influence!

 

In later life Hannah successfully went to University and got a 2:1 in her degree – another proud moment in the **** family – even if it did mean she beat my grades!

 

Hannah wasn't all that keen I remember to give up the life of the student but I managed to coax her into the world of work by applying for a job at **** – or the family firm as we liked to think of it as both Dad and I had worked there over the years!

 

I am pleased to say that she has not only found a job she enjoys but also a husband which I think you will all agree is not a bad days work!!

 

For those of you that know Hannah well you will know she's a keen lover of animals and misses being surrounded by pets as she was growing up – even now I know she'd get a puppy tomorrow if the room could be found at home.

 

Well Hannah – you now have a Simon instead – who thinking about it has many of the characteristics of a puppy – full of enthusiasm, always playful and friendly and always wins over everyone they meet.  I just hope he also doesn't chew the furniture or wee on the carpet!!

 

Wedding speech for my sister examples and tips

 

Not having Dad around has made us a close family and it is a real pleasure to welcome Simon into the fold – Having been outnumbered by both my Mum and Hannah over the years I'm grateful at last the additional male support!

 

When I first got to know Simon it was when we worked together long before he met my sister. I remember one particular day we had a meeting in Colchester which involved a 6 hour round trip and  seemed to involve a lot of talk about mountain biking. 

 

A subject I know nothing about at the start of the journey but by the end I felt I was qualified to downhill Ben Nevis!  I thought back then he was a good guy, little did I know then that one day he would become my Brother in Law. 

 

I seem to remember I got us a McDonalds burger on the way back.  If id known one day you were going to take my sister off my hands id have got you the fries and drink as well!

 

Joking aside, Simon is one of the most genuine and considerate people I have met and I can honestly say I have never known Hannah to be happier than in the time they have been together. 

 

It is clear to me as to everyone that knows them that they are soul mates that complement each other perfectly and as cheesy as it sounds I couldn't have asked for a better man to marry my sister.

 

It is traditional on these occasions to end by giving some advice to the married couple.  I can't draw on the experiences of my own illustrious married life.. just yet but I have unearthed a few words of wisdom on this complex subject.

 

To Hannah,

If you want something from Simon, ask for it. Remember, Simon is a man, hints do not work!

To Simon,

I'm going to borrow the words of Oscar Wilde, “Women are meant to be loved, not understood.”

 

Marriage will bring you many things, loyalty, self-restraint, obedience and a whole host of other virtues you wouldn't have needed had you stayed single.

 

And most useful piece of advice I can give to you to maintain a long and happy marriage – always remember to put the loo seat down after you!

 

On a slightly less irreverent note…to you both…

Marriage in this day and age is far from easy – With all the external pressures of day-to-day life – you will need to grow together in mutual trust and understanding – whilst not losing sight of what first brought you together – In other words – may your love be modern enough to survive the times – yet old-fashioned enough to last forever.

 

And so finally….it's my very great pleasure… to propose the toast to the happy couple.  Ladies and Gentlemen …will you please be upstanding ….and raise your glasses……….… to the Bride and Groom.

Let’s now look at

 

A Short Sister of the Bride Wedding Toast Sample/ Template

 

I would like to thank hitched.co.uk for this brilliant example.

 

Hello everyone. Thank you for being here to help celebrate Brooke and Brian. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Faith, the maid of honor and Brooke’s little sister.

 

I want to give a special thank you to our parents, Mary and Robert, and Brian’s parents, Gloria and William, for making today possible. You all have set an amazing example of lasting love and what it truly means to be married. Thank you!

You all have set an amazing example of lasting love and what it truly means to be married. Thank you!

 

Looking back, Brooke, you were an amazing big sister to me. I have to admit that I don’t think I truly appreciated all that you did for me growing up. Pretty much every single one of my memories as a child has you in them and was as wonderful because of you. I remember spending all day playing “Olden Days.”

 

We would start out in the morning picking out our outfits in the costume box. Once we had our back story, persona and outfit set, we would venture outside, and use the four-wheeler as a stand-in covered wagon for the trip out west.

 

The day would usually end up with us making elaborate berry, leaf and sawdust pies at our out-door kitchen on the stone wall. Or I remember how you would play Barbies with me, even when you probably were too old to find it fun anymore. But you always humoured me.

 

I remember spending all day playing “Olden Days.” We would start out in the morning picking out our outfits in the costume box.

 

When I was little I loved stuffed animals a lot! I had one stuffed animal named Lambie. Every summer, Brooke would help Lambie go away on an adventure.

 

I wouldn’t see Lambie for weeks! I never missed her much because the best part was that Lambie would write me letters about what she was doing. Brooke would deliver me the special little letters and then help me write and send ones back to Lambie. And let me tell you, Lambie did some amazing things.

 

As we got older, Brooke, you still included me in your life when the last thing a lot of teenagers would have done is spend time with their pre-teen, annoying sister.

 

When you got your first job at Dunkin and your driver’s license, I was the envy of my six-grade class because you took me to the mall at least twice a week.

 

Wedding speech from brother to sister on wedding day

 

You even would spend your hard-earned money on things for me so I wouldn’t feel left out when you bought stuff! Later, you continued to always include me in your life and, as we get older, we’ve grown even closer.

 

 

When you got your first job at Dunkin and your driver's license, I was the envy of my six-grade class because you took me to the mall at least twice a week.

 

Beyond spending time with me, you were and still are an amazing example for me. I have always looked up to you and looked to you on the appropriate ways to act, dress and behave.

 

You have been my role model for years and always will be. I am so proud of the woman you are today.

 

Brian, I am so happy that you and Brooke found one another. I knew you were special from the very beginning. After one of your first dates, the one in Putnam at the antique mall, Brooke couldn’t wait to tell me about it at work the next day.

 

She was absolutely beaming and couldn’t contain her huge smile. She told me how you guys stayed up till 1 am just laughing and then she showed me a picture of you modelling a silly antique jacket with tails and a top hat! I knew it meant something.

 

She told me how you guys stayed up till 1 am just laughing and then she showed me a picture of you modelling a silly antique jacket with tails and a top hat!

 

Brooke is obviously beautiful, sophisticated and intelligent.

 

However, not a lot of people know how incredibly hilarious and funny Brooke is. When she was little, we all thought she would have her own sketch comedy show or be on the stage because of all the characters she would make up and how she always made us laugh.

 

Brian, you bring that side out of Brooke. You allow her to be her true self in every form. Brooke, you have found the perfect complement for you. You both have so much to offer the world and each other.

 

On this day, 133 years ago on June 16, 1884, the very first roller coaster in America opened up at Coney Island. I think this is very fortuitous.

 

A familiar saying uses a rollercoaster as a metaphor for marriage. It goes, ‘In marriage scream from the peaks, hold hands through the dips, laugh through the loops and enjoy every twist and turn, for the ride is better because you share it together.’

 

If everyone can now raise their glass and join me in congratulating Brooke and Brian. May your love be modern enough to survive the times and old fashioned enough to survive forever. Congratulations!

At this point, we are going to use the first example to show you how you can model your speech after the brother of the bride wedding speech.

 

 

Let’s first begin by looking at

 

How to Write the Opening Remarks of Your Wedding Toast For Your Sister

 

The opening remarks seem fairly easy to write since it comprises of the following basic elements:

  1. A brief self-introduction and your relationship to the bride and groom
  1. Thanking the bride for asking you to speak and other personalities like friends and family who have been a blessing in your sister’s life.

 

You know, the introductory remarks comprise of two parts: short self-introduction and the hook that introduces the content of the speech.

 

Your opening remarks should be persuasive and engaging and make everyone want to listen to the rest of your story.

Unfortunately, most siblings can’t seem to get their acts together when they write this crucial part of your delivery.

 

Thankfully, I have come up with a few proven ideas to help you open your speech with a bang and I am glad to share these with you.

 

First, you can mention how you felt when your sister asked to speak at her wedding. Here’s an example to illustrate this point.

 

Wow, I can’t believe that it’s me up here welcoming you all to my sister’s wedding.  I told Dan that I was going to memorize my speech and practice it drunk. Then, I thought, the guests know I am teetotal.

 

So, I decided to prepare it 6 months in advance and you can imagine the sleepless nights I have spent on this which explains why I now like a twig!

 

Write a wedding speech for my sister on her wedding day

 

Second, if you are speaking because your father has passed away, you can imitate what the brother of the bride said in the earlier example.  Here you go once again in case you have forgotten about it.

 

‘’ Although this a joyous occasion, I can’t let this moment pass without saying we all know we would all rather have our Dad up here today giving this speech.  I know that if were still with us he couldn't be any more proud of Hannah than me and Mum are right now at the fantastic person she has grown up to be’’

 

Third, you can start with a beautiful quote about love and it would really resonate with your friends and family. It always works if you are aiming at writing an emotional speech for your sister or bride.

 

Well, here are some love quotes you can make good use of.

  1. “When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us. I love you the most.” – Unknown
  1. “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” – Robert A. Heinlein
  1. “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss

 

Now, I am going to use the last quote by Dr. Seuss to write a simple intro. Here you go:

 

I once read this quote by Dr. Seuss that says you know you are in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

 

I only got to know my sister Brooke was in love after reading that quote. I used to share the same bed with her and when I asked why she had sleepless nights, she said she had insomnia which I believed to be true at the time. I only realized that Brandon was the cause of her insomnia when she screamed his name over and over in a dream. I initially thought she was having nightmares until she…

 

Don’t you think the wedding guests will itch for more if you kick start your speech with that story or something similar to that?

 

All that being said, let’s look at….

 

 

How to Write the Content or Structure of Your Wedding Toast for Your Sister

 

If you scroll up a bit and read both examples/templates once again, you will notice that they are laden with stories.  Your speech should have stories too as they give life to an otherwise boring presentation.

 

To come up with good and relevant anecdotes, you should make time and write down fond memories of what your relationship has been like with your sister over the years.

 

This is what I recommend you do. Starting from her childhood through adolescence to when she was growing up, jot down as many memories as you can remember about her.

 

Then, narrow it down by picking stories you think you can make good use of. Afterwards, write down your impressions about your new brother in law and compose what you have in mind by first creating an outline from which you can develop your entire wedding toast. 

 

By the way, these videos can give you an idea of what to expect. So, watch them and write down ideas you think you can incorporate into your own wedding speech.

At this point, let’s now consider

Simple Tips and Ideas You Can Use to End Your Wedding Speech for your Sister with a Bang

 

Most people think that wedding speeches have to end with bits and pieces of advice. That’s not entirely true as there are other creative ways of ending your speech on a very memorable note.

 

Here are ways of simple ways of going about it.

 

First, if you or the couple is rooted in faith, you can borrow some bible verses to enhance the theme of your speech. Some relevant bible verses you can use include

  1. 1 Corinthians 16:14. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
  1. Colossians 3:14:"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
  1. Ephesians 5:25:"For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her."

 

Second, if you are married, you can simply share some bits and pieces of advice.

 

Third, if you really want to make your concluding remarks very unique, you can sing what you wish to say.

 

 

 

Fourth, if you have nothing to say, just offer some well wishes and take your seat. You can use at least one of these to wrap up.

  1. May you experience true love and happiness in your walk together. I wish you nothing but love and happiness.

 

  1. I wish you that you will find true joy and happiness in each other’s lovely presence.

 

 

  1. My wish for this marriage is that your love lasts forever.

Wedding speech for my sister

Finally, you may use a very nice quote to wrap up. The second did just that with the underlined quote.

If everyone can now raise their glass and join me in congratulating Brooke and Brian. May your love be modern enough to survive the times and old fashioned enough to survive forever. Congratulations!

P.S: Most siblings do this...Have you considered it? Want to write and give a great wedding speech like the ones above but can't seem to get started because you don't know the exact words to use?

Or not too sure if what you intend writing will be well received by the guests?

Let's help you make your sister, friends and family proud, and let the wedding guests say great things about your speech.
