Sister of the Groom Wedding Speech Free Sample

Ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for allowing me to stand before you and honor my brother and his new bride.

Andrew and I didn’t always get along growing up. I once asked him when it was that we started fighting. “When you learned to talk,” was his reply.

When we were younger, we played the typical childhood board games. We’d sprawl out in the middle of our living room with Monopoly or Guess Who in front of us.

I always tried by hardest to win, to beat my big brother, but always ended up disappointed as I walked away the loser, after he outsmarted me, time and again. However, seeing my disappointment, I he would always ask for a rematch, and I always just happened to win. It must have been magic!

Christmas mornings I would wake up no later than 5 o’clock in the morning, excited to see what Santa had brought us. The rule was we couldn’t wake our parents up before 8 o’clock, so I would burst into Andrew’s room and wake him up. He was less than thrilled. However, he would always get over it and his caring side would shine through. He’d put aside the fact that he was angry about his wake up call and keep me busy, coloring or playing games with me. It is this side of him that assures me he will treat Emily well, with kindness and compassion. I know he will care for her even more than he cared for me.

In my eyes, my big brother was always amazing. One time he brought a shark home from school that his teacher wanted him to dissect. Later he won a science fair project for a robot that he made himself. It moved its eyes and arms when the correct buttons were pushed. For his senior project in college, Andrew created a computer game. He worked hard and long for a semester. It was finally completed, and helped him land a job as the virtual reality computer programmer that he still is today. Andrew always marched to the beat of a different drum, but it was because of this love for science and computers that lead him to Emily.

Andy will bring his sharp wit, intelligence, selflessness and caring heart to his new marriage, ensuring a life of happiness for both him and my new sister-in-law. I remember the first time I saw them together. Andrew had an air about him that I’d never seen him have before. It was complete elation with his relationship with Emily. It was from that day that I had no doubts that she was the woman for my brother.

I know that Andrew and Emily will have a good life together. The way they look into each others eyes and the beaming smiles they give each other fills my heart as well, because I know my brother is happier than he ever has been before.

So to my dear brother and his new wife, I give you my blessing. May you have a long and happy life together.
