Sister of the Bride Wedding Speech Free Sample

Ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for coming here today and honoring my sister and her new husband on the day of their wedding.

My older sister and I have been planning our weddings since we were little girls. It began when she was in third grade and I was in first. Our Aunt Sue was getting married to her high school sweet heart. We spent the morning of the wedding twirling our dresses and pretending to be the brides to be. The wedding itself was beautiful. I, but Marissa especially, was in awe of the celebration. For weeks, all she could talk about was the cake, the flowers, and especially, the long, white dress.

Everyday after that wedding, we’d scarf down our snacks after school and race up to our room to look through bridal magazines that we bought with our allowances. We both had scrapbooks full of wedding ideas, but Marissa’s was particularly extensive. She had everything picked out; right down to the napkins she wasn’t placed on the tables at the reception.

Marissa and Scott’s wedding today was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. Knowing that she has finally gotten to live her dream wedding makes me eternally happy for her.

When middle school came, boys soon came into the picture as well. I couldn’t be bothered with the other sex. Marissa, however, loved boys. She was a hopeless romantic. She would watch romantic movies and then act out the love scenes with our mothers’ mannequin that she used for sewing. Marissa would wrap her arms around the neck of the mannequin and pretend she was slow dancing with her dream man underneath a star-lit sky. I think subconsciously she was on the lookout for a groom to complete her wedding dreams and help them come true.

And here he is! When I first met Scott, I knew he was perfect for my big sister. His love for poetry, the night sky and chick flicks were obvious tip-offs that he is a hopeless romantic, just like my sister.

Though the days of playing with dolls and planning out weddings is over, I still hold these memories deep within my heart. My sister is a grown woman now, and happier than I have seen her before. Since meeting Scott, she has become more confident with herself. She has learned to enjoy life and take risks. A certain radiant air hangs around her now, and words cannot describe how happy I am for that.

Marissa, you look beautiful, and words cannot describe how happy I am that you finally got to have your dream wedding and dream groom. I can only hope to look half as beautiful as you do today, and have a ceremony half as amazing.

I love you with all my heart and wish you and Scott a lifetime of happy memories together. Treat each other well, be open and honest, and most importantly, don’t lose your attraction to the romance the night sky brings.
