LMAO, I don’t know Lisa, but that speech was really funny.  I wish you would give her a hairbrush as a gag gift at the wedding.. you know, for protection from Brian or any other perpetrators when they get their own house. 

I don’t think it’s too long AT ALL.  It’s perfect – tells the story of how they met, how you guys met and gives a bit of really funny advice.  I think I need to revamp my speech as Maid/Matron of Honor for a wedding I’m in next year (already started writing, yes..)

@LuckyJuls:  I love it. You may be able to cut the part about the doctrs appt (just that line… people may wonder what it was for, etc, and it isn’t really important). You could shorten it to:

But that day, she met her true match. Brian’s charm, infectious laugh and open heart won Lisa, and everyone else, over. After all the punks we had dealt with, Brian showed his kind soul. It turns out, not all guys are the same.


I think it will be much shorter than you anticipate it to be (just form reading through it). It’s so sweet!

Great speech. I dont think it’s too long and I think the audience will listen to ever word.

The only part I would consider cutting is, as AnonymousCupcake said, the part about the doctor’s appointment, but other than that…Perfect! Can you be my Maid/Matron of Honor and do a speech too?
It’s a great speech – it’s lighthearted and loving, so no one will mind how long it is (not that 3-5 minutes is long anyway).

@AnonymousCupcake:  I agree with that edit.  I can just imagine guests cornering the bride with concerned looks on their face all night to question her about that long ago doctor’s appointment lol

I think it’s really good otherwise though, and as PP mentioned, I think it will end up being a lot shorter than you think when you’re actually speaking at the wedding.  MOH speeches are supposed to be a little bit longer anyway I thought.
