So you’ve been asked to be the maid of honor… Congratulations!
One of the main responsibilities of the maid of honor is the wedding speech. At first, this can be a bit nerve racking, but with a few quick tips, you can have the entire room smiling.
One of the best ways to write a great maid of honor wedding speech is to create it around a story. The speech could include how you first met the bride, how long you known her, or funny stories of your times together.
Also, be sure to prepare in advance. Write your speech down on paper and practicing in front of friends and family will allow you to deliver a knock-out presentation.
Ask several friends that you know will tell you the truth on how your speech sounds.
You can then conclude the speech by noting how great the bride and groom look together and all the wishes you have for the newlyweds.
End the speech with words of encouragement. Turn to the guest, ask then to rise and raise their glasses. Finally turn to the couple, and raise your glass for a toast simply say “To Jack and Jill” of course using the couple name.
Figuring out the ideal wedding toast for your friends or relatives special day can be a stressful event. But the best maid of honor speeches come straight from the heart.
And remember, the speech doesn’t need to be long. 3-5 minutes is really all you need.
