Default My brother's marrying his sister-in-law

... no, not my wife!

I've just been informed that I'm to be best man. Oh, and the gig's on Saturday - this Saturday! Thanks for the warning, bro. Quick, chaps, give me some ideas for a speech, but bear in mind the following:-

1. How do I say his new wife's really nice, attractive, warm, friendly, hard-working, good sense of humour, etc without comparing her to the previous incumbent?
2. How should I wish them luck without seeming to say "better luck this time"?
3. How rude can I be about him, bearing in mind that won't know half the guests?
4. Basically, what can I say that will give everyone the feel-good factor without on the one hand offending the children from their previous relationships, but on the other hand not being so delicate that the thing falls flat?

Four days to go, and I work 12 hours a day...
