You can rhyme out their lives, their loves, or their stag...
When twelve blokes in nighties went out on the raz...
(You get the idea!)

The Mother of the Bride has a brand new hat.

Retirement speech with rhyme.
Hi Kevin, Just to let you know that the speech went very well and everyone loved it.
The rhyme was brilliant! I was so glad to have had your help.
Father of the Bride, with poem.
My conscience got the better of me once or twice, particularly as quite a number of guests said, "It was the best F of the B speech they had ever heard". High praise indeed. No wonder I felt guilty. In the end I decided to keep my secret to myself and bask in the glory. So, sorry you weren't flies on the wall to at least take some of the credit. Anyway, thanks to you and David for all your help, particularly with doing it all in such a short timescale.
Seriously, it was a brilliant service.
Joint Best Man Speech.
Kevin, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the work you and Lorraine did on our behalf. Our speech went very well, we got a large number of congratulatory comments and the bride especially was pleased that we didn't embarrass the groom too much! Lorraine made what could have been a painful process much more bearable.
