Wedding Speech: Father Of The Bride Delivers Heartfelt, Hilarious Toast (VIDEO)

Weddings can be an emotional time for the father of the bride (just ask these weepy dads). But one bride's dad managed to combine both humor and sweetness into an unforgettable speech.

In a video of the speech posted on YouTube recently, the dad starts by explaining his daughter's best qualities. Then, he says that he knew something was missing from her life, so he prayed that she would be happy -- and that's when she met her husband.

"You see that look on her face? I never saw that until she met you," he says to the groom. "Today I'm giving you the best thing I have to give. And I just wanted you to know before I do that, how hard me and God have worked to get her ready... don't screw it up."

Watch the entire speech in the video above. For help planning your wedding toast, check out HuffPost blogger Sandy Malone's advice, or watch these top movie wedding speeches for inspiration.
