For those who don't know me, my name is Alex and I'm today's bridesmaid. Don't laugh, I'm on the bride's side. Ok, ok, I'm on side of the new family that is about to happen. Alice and Max, it's an honor to stand up here today.
Max had proven himself as the cheeky outgoing type but you wouldn't have thought so when we went to some of the theme parks in Rome. And that's exactly where he met Alice. The deepness of that feeling was the only thing that scared him senseless that day! Love at first sight.
So here we are now, combining these two amazing families. Alice, you look absolutely fabulous today as we all knew you would. I hope you are enjoying your day so far. Max, you also look ok, man. I can see how happy you make each other and I wish you both nothing but happiness for your future together.
So now, ladies and gentlemen, I invite you all to stand and raise your glasses to toast the new husband and wife!

cheeky - дерзкий

Транскрипция
Hi! I'm Steve, Max's best man. When Max asked me to be his best man I felt honored and had to say yes.
I've known Max for 8 years now, and he's asked me to talk today about what a great guy he is, so I can honestly say that he is handsome, brilliant, funny and char… Max, I can't read your writing.
What's the last word?

Since we first met, I watched him transform from an awkward young man to a slightly less awkward grown man. But Alice made the impossible: she helped him turn into a Man man.
There is one very important person missing from this table and that is Max's Dad, who very sadly passed away two years ago. However, I'm sure that he would be so proud to see his boy finally become a man and marry someone who makes him so very happy.
So, if you would all please raise a glass. Cheers!

brilliant - блестящий
awkward - неловко
