Speeches are not just for the men of the wedding party. Nowadays many ladies in the entourage like to say a few words and this is a great way to say a special thank you to the couple for asking you to play an important role on their special day.
The Maid of Honour speech should be light-hearted and have just the right amount of sentiment to allow for some oohs and aaahs! The guests will love to hear some funny stories about the bride; maybe some anecdotes of when you grew up together or a special milestone that you both shared. Try to include poignant message; say something from the heart. This is a great time for you to tell the Bride how much she means to you!
You can include in your Maid of Honour speech a special note about the Bride’s parents and maybe a happy memory if you have a relationship with them.
In your Maid of Honour speech, you should thank the other Bridesmaids for their help in making today wonderful for their friend and for being a big part of the special day.
You’ll find plenty of examples to help you create a memorable speech. Please free to send us a copy if yours to help others!
