I don’t have any templates but to get you started:

Welcome speech:
Welcome all and thank them for coming, you may want to highlight those who traveled a great distance and those who aren’t able to join you (we miss Grandma Mary, but know she is looking down from heaven and smiling, Uncle Raymond would have loved to join us, but is still recovering from hip surgery).
Thank the bridal party for their support throughout the engagement and for their ‘service’ over the weekend
Thank both of your parents, step-parents, etc, you may want to use vague words like support, guidance, help. It is tacky to mention money, but I’m hoping his parents, while unable or unwilling to financially help, gave some advise, pep talks, or encouragement.
You may want to remind everyone of the events and times, especially if you added anything to the weekend such as morning after brunch, after parties or picture taking.
Express how excited you each are to be joining the families and encourage everyone to mingle and enjoy themselves.

At the end, don’t toast to yourselves, just end with another Thank You and Enjoy!

Hope that gives you a start.
