Ideas For Maid Of Honor Speeches

So it's finally happened. Your best friend is getting married and you're been chosen to be the maid of honor. Of course, that means that you will have to give a speech all by yourself. Don't panic! We're here to help.

For naturally talented writers, this won't be a big deal. However, if you are new to writing and public speaking, you are goning to need all the help you can get.

Remember, long speches and long weddings can sometimes turn out to be boring for the guests. You've probably been to one or two that you didn't think would ever end, right. So, you'll want to keep it short and entertaining. If the best man is not able to deliver, then it's up to you to put everyone at ease. In other words, break the ice.

When you stand up and are handed the microphone, the first thing you want to do is introduce yourself. There may be a lot of people at the wedding that you have never met, and even if the room is full of people you know, it is still the proper thing to do.

In your speech, you can make it about you on the intro, but most of the content should be about the bride. Remember, it's her day, not yours. Make it straight to the point, but remember that it has to be meaningful. So highlight important points about the bride.

One of the things you need to include is your gratitude and how honored you are to have been chosen. After that, you can tell how much you love your best friend and how happy you are for her.

You will want to highlight important events that you and the bride have gone through. However, never include bad experiences. Only the wonderful achievements that you and she have had together during your younger years. If you want to make a toast that incorporates a few of your really intimate moments - the ones his family and no grandparent should ever be aware of - tell it at the bachelorette party.

If you're a funny girl, go ahead and incorporate a little humor into your speech. The bride and groom - and anyone else at the wedding who knows you well - will expect you to have something hilarious to say. Don't disappoint the people who gave you this tremendous job. In other words ---Be you! If you are a beautiful storyteller, tell a beautiful story. Whoever you are, be you when you make your speech. It will come across more meaningful that way.

In closing, thank the couple for having you be a part of their day, say something personal and appropriate about the couple, include your quote or personal story here, offer well wishes and hope for the future, and finish by raising your glass and offering a toast to the newlyweds. Do not forget to take a sip of your cocktail after the toast!
