Do we really need additional tears on the Wedding Day? There is already a lot of EMOTIONS Floating around the Wedding Reception to add that one in. When writing a maid of honor speeches, it has to have some balance in Emotions in them.
Here are 5 POINTERS FOR WRITING THE FINEST MAID OF HONOR SPEECH EVER
DON’T WAIT TOO LONG TO START WRITING: Try to begin composing your speech one month before the wedding so that you can practice with a buddy (not the one who is getting married) or partner, and change as required.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE MEN: Men has known to be uncool during their speeches (truly, guys, let’s avoid that), but that does not imply you HAVE to dig deep and induce tears. If you want to be amusing, be funny! Completely take the very best male’s thunder. It’s fine.
DON’T TREAT IT LIKE A JOKE: Your maid of honor speech is not the time to try your future profession as a stand-up comedian. They want to hear something fun ABOUT THE BRIDE and/or THE GROOM in a positive, and genuine manner. So actually consider the speech and take it seriously, even if humor is your vehicle for delivery.
GET PERSONAL: Certainly this is not the time to utilize every terrible partner the bride has had as proof for how excellent she selected her groom is. This is the time to share a few personal stories like:
How you met the bride
What does the bride mean to you
remember one particular event
How you met the groom
In your opinion, he will make her very happy
You’ll wish to talk about how happy you are for the couple. After that all having said, say CHEERS to the new MR and MRS…..!!!!
SAY SOMETHINGS ABOUT HOW GOD BOUND THEM TOGETHER FOREVER. Not always happening, but this is so powerful when use.
WHEN IN DOUBT, USE THE FORMULA: Practically everybody gets the jitters when they remain in front of a large group and have to speak– it’s fine! If you’re super flipped out, just utilize the formula:
I like you both so much
Insert anecdote about the couple and how terrific they are
I hope you are always happy
A SAMPLE MAID OF HONOR SPEECH
Hello, everyone, thanks! I would like to say that (bride’s name) looks fantastic tonight. The groom looks respectable, too. I can sincerely say that I believe you both appeared terrific together.
I am (your name) the (relationship to bride-to-be). Likewise, let me simply say that I am the very best friend she has EVER had. Other than, maybe, for (groom’s name). That I will confess. Anyhow, I have great deals of memories with this girl. From the late nights up together talking to one another to playing together when we were more youthful.
And, also, discussing her previous relationships. I have seen (bride’s name) with a couple of old sweethearts, but she never seemed genuinely pleased, or in love. However, with (groom’s name) it is changed. The very first time I met the groom, I knew that he was that special somebody. She seemed free, better, more happy, and relaxed.
I have seen them grow better and better every day since then. I can say that they both love each other more than anything else which is extremely rare in the world where 80 billion people lived.
It shows us that no matter how goofy or insane we are, there is someone out there for us! I’m joking!
Ladies and Gentlemen, a toast for the Bride-to-be and Groom.
Watch the perfect maid of Honor to see how it goes:
