Lines for this Week
"Preparing for this event has been a massive learning curve for (Groom). One of the first things he had to try and get his head around was the fact that a Spring Wedding Fair doesn't have dodgems and a waltzer."
Classic Lines
"It's not uncommon for the father of the bride to be rather daunted by the duties he has to perform on his daughter's wedding day. But you know, I've felt pretty relaxed. Why? Because my wife's so organised I knew she'd sort everything: arrange for a car to take us to the church - which she did; collect my suit from the hire shop - which she did; and of course, my speech. So come on, Dear - can I have it now, please?"
