Humorous Wedding Speech by Brother of the Groom

Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentleman – It’s my job to reply to the toast to the bridesmaids and in doing so, say a couple of nice things about George.

Finally, I can only admire your good taste in women - which brings me onto Peggy, who is as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you would be upstanding for a toast to George and Peggy - may they both grow old on the same pillow. To George and Peggy!
