Opening 'ice breaker' went down very well and the speech as a whole was well received.  Card drop joke: I read the 'rules' off of the main card and 'riffled through' to find the cards to drop and made comments like 'wont be needing that!' 'or that'. Also went down well.

On arrival several of Louise's friends (whom we had known since childhood) told me they were looking forward to my speech.   Thankfully it was well received, with the addition of some extra-curricular remarks from conversations over dinner the night before; these added topical colour and humour.
