BRIDESMAID SPEECH - BY: JOANNA DEMARCHI
Good evening ladies and gentleman, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all for joining us today in celebrating a very special occasion The wedding of Shireen and Laith! As one of the bridesmaids and as Shireen's second cousin, I take much pride in sharing a few words with you about the newlyweds. After so many months of preparation, it's hard to believe that the big day has finally arrived. Many months of hard work that has gone into today's events, and I think everyone agrees with me that today has been worth all that hard work and more!
Sometimes you just know
that two people were made for each other. That's how it is today. Shireen, in
all the time I've known you, I've never seen you happier." And laith I
haven't gotten to know you that well, but I do know that you are lucky to have
shireen as your wife and I know that you will fit in perfectly in a big family
full of aunts, uncles, cousins and second cousins! So you have your work cut
out for you!
Although they were both born in the same country, shireen and laith did not know each other. Aside from faith and destiny we should also thank modern technology -the internet for bringing them together! It all started with an e-mail that laith sent all the way from Amsterdam to Burlington! All it took is a picture and a few words that got things started. And after many meetings the two got together in places such as Amsterdam, London, and Burlington, It was a lovely surprise to all of us when shireen announced her engagement to laith! Not only are you handsome and charming laith, you have also made shireen very happy; so thank you for that and we especially thank you for putting a permanent smile on shireen's face!
For those who don't know
shireen well, she loves to party, some of you including her friends will agree
with me when I say that she's a party animal! So for you laith, to come and
steel her heart is a big and I mean BIG accomplishment! Some people think that
marriage is just a lottery; if it is then I think that Laith has picked a winning
ticket today. Not only have you married a loving woman, she is also very special
to all her family and friends, so laith be careful there are a lot of us and
we are all watching you!!
