I used this speech this month, October 2011. I had a hard time trying to find a SIL wedding speech. I married my SIL's brother. I spent weeks trying to figure out what to say because I had only known her a few years and was honored to become her MOH. So I figured I would upload mine and help out those who need it. I received so many compliments on my speech so I had to share. I hope you use it and get the same reviews!!! All I ask is that you send me an email to let me know that you used it and how it went. GOOD LUCK!!!
Good Evening! First off congratulations to the bride and groom and thank all of you for being here to help celebrate this happy occasion. For those of you who don't know me, my name is and I am sister in law. and are to be commended on their planning and preparation for today. Everything has turned out beautifully.
you look absolutely stunning.
You have given me this privilege today of being your matron of honor and I want to thank you for that. This morning as we started to prepare for the day, I got to see how excited you were and I gotta admit I became a little teary eyed. As the day went on, I became overhelmed with so much happiness for you. Finally at church, I was able to stand beside you and witness you and exchange your wedding vows. This will be a moment that I will forever hold dear to my heart. As we continue to create special memories together, I have realized that we have this bond that goes beyond the meaning of sister in law. As I look back, I am reminded of just how grateful and blessed I am that you have shared your thoughtfulness and sense of compassion with me. You have given me this wonderful friendship. You are an honest and true person and this is what makes you amazing. I love you for this reason. I hope that the love surrounding you today will be there for many years to come.
: You look as handsome as ever. You clean up nicely!!! Just recently I have learned that there is another love in your life. Your first being of course and your second is YOU CAN PUT SOMETHING FUNNY IN HERE ABOUT HIM. I ADDED SOMETHING ABOUT MY MOM IN LAWS COOKING THAT EVERYONE FIGHTS OVER. For the amount of time that I have known you, you have always been a sweet guy and I can't think of a better person for to marry. Seeing her this happy tells me that you will be a terrific husband who will have no problem taking on the cooking and the daily chores.
My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years, your love for each other will deepen and grow. That your home be filled with beautiful children, tons of family get togethers and laughter for all the days of your life. Take today and each day forward time to cherish each other. Never forget to put your love and your family first.
I love you both very much.
