    He wants it to be a surprise, just like our vows.  I am still not sure if I will make one yet.

    If he offered I would read it, but if he wanted to keep it a surprise I would respect that.

    However, if we do decide to give speeches, I think we would cover the ground rules of appropriate context first.

    My husband didn’t make a speech at our wedding, but if he was planning on it, I think I would want it to be a surprise. I think it’s a good thing you read your FH’s speech beforehand though! I’d kill my husband if he said something like that in front of our entire families!!

    I agree with @missmouse29, if he offered, I’d read it but we would have to establish that there is a line as to what is appropriate and what isn’t.

    ohmygod, wasd he really going to say that in front of family? Thank God you read it!

    WE aren’t doing any kind of speeches or words to one another ,because FI is too shy. He was mortified when I told him our jp wanted us to say personal vows to one another. LOL.
