Good Evening! For those of you who don't know me, I am _________, the very proud big sister of our glamorous Bride. I want to start by congratulating bride and groom, and thanking all of you for coming here today.

______, I want to note how beautiful you look today, and to tell you that this has truly been a special day for me. Thank you for giving true meaning to the word sister and for sharing the last 28 years with me. My parents and I have just loved this girl from the day she was born.
