The 40th wedding anniversary is also known as the ruby wedding anniversary is really a rare kind of event, and if youre to be one of these luckiest people who will deliver this speech then I would like to congratulate you first. So now if youre looking to get some ideas in composing your wedding anniversary speech then I hope these ideas can help you to get started:
First, you can say a few words explaining about what Ruby anniversary is all about, the ruby itself represents passion and everlasting flame within your heart, just like what you two have had all these years, so its very suitable to mention about this in your speech.
Now the second part is to tell some stories, this wouldnt be too difficult because Im sure that you have lots of things to talk about in your life together for 40 years, all the laughter, sorrow, bump and bruises but somehow you both manage to stay together as a loving couple, tell them all in a sequential order so that it will be easier for you to find the exact words and not jumping into one event to another randomly.
You can also add some funny, hilarious stories about you two, the weird events, the funny accidents, the funny habits, the funny words, all things that would remind you just how much you love each other regardless all the differences you might have.
Third part is try to make the speech short and simple and not too long, I know that sometimes we can get carried away with our own stories and end up mumbling about every little thing that is not quite necessary to bring up in your speech, so to help you stay on track, you can write on a piece of paper all the speechs punch lines, so you know what to say and how to say it perfectly, you even can put some duration notes near each punch line so you know how long you must speak about each topic.
Practice all these 3 parts over and over again until you can get it right, and once again I want to tell congratulate you for your wonderful 40th wedding anniversary I hope you can reach the 50th wedding anniversary, God bless you two.
