A Word or Two on Making Adorable Bride Speeches


the brideYou won’t see a bride giving a wedding speech at every wedding reception party you attend. Maybe that’s because the groom is supposed to speak on behalf of his wife as well. And sometimes the couple make a speech together. However, in recent times more and more brides are willing to make a speech at her wedding reception, which is wonderful. Here in this post, assuming you are here to find if you could get some help on writing your bride’s speech, I would try o give you a detail overview on how to go about your personal bride’s speech.

The bride generally gives her speech after the other speakers have made their speeches and so, not surprisingly, it will have a prolonged influence on the audience.

Considering the fact that traditionally the bride do not need to make a speech, there isn’t any specific format that you could follow. However I have laid down a blueprint for your speech – hopefully you would find it inspiring.

Before we move to the main points, here’s a secret to get ready for your speech super fast and easy. If you decided to make a speech at the last moment, this trick is going to help you a lot. The trick is obvious though – copy your fianc√©’s speech and transform it to yours. Though the style of delivery would differ, there’s not much difference between a groom speech and a bride speech. The bride is about to step into a new chapter of her life and she is excited. But at the same time leaving her family and the home she has lived for so many years makes her emotional. And these two contrasting state of mind is the highlight of all bride speeches. And this is exactly where it gets different fro a groom’s speech.

Even though the groom might have already done it, it would be nice if you could personally thank the guests in attendance one more time. In fact, for those who are a bit nervous about making such speeches, it’s a great way to begin since what you’re going to say is so obvious that it won’t be a problem for you. Now there are usually quite a few “thank you”s that you ought to give to …. well, almost everybody. are are some of them –

Say thanks to all of your guests for attending as well as for the wedding gifts they have brought along. Don’t forget to mention that it’s for them that the wedding turned out to be so remarkable.

Specially appreciate the guests who have traveled quite a distance to be a part of the celebration. When you have just a handful of “out of town” guests you might want to mention their names separately. However, it won’t be possible if you tend to have too many of them coming from distant locations. In that case , you could say something like this – “I would also like to thank you all of you who have traveled from far away places like New Jersey, Detroit, Ohio …. Minnesota, Florida. …. and Edmonton”¬† … you got the idea.

You could even mention the name of the ones who failed to make it to the wedding for some reason telling how very much you missed them.

Make it a point to thank every single person that have contributed to the wedding in some way or the other. Specially thank you maid of honor and the rest of the bridesmaids for their priceless contribution.

Say thanks to your would-be-in-laws for the warm welcome they have extended to you to their family. Make the parents of the groom feel that their son is in good hands.

Like the rest of the wedding speeches, bride speeches also sound great when they have one or two funny stories in them. I don’t have to tell you that “funny stories” would mean some light-hearted anecdotes and not not some embarrassing accounts. You might want to share with your audience the way you became acquainted with the groom, fell in love with him and so on. Mentioning some funny details about your romantic relationship would definitely make the speech more engaging.

You could also express your thoughts on your wedding as well as the institution of marriage. There are some really great marriage related quotes available online. You may choose to use some of them in your speech.

The most interesting part of a bride’s wedding speech is obviously when she speaks about the groom, her husband-to-be. Simply tell him how happy you are to have him as your husband. If you are proud and excited to have him as your partner, don’t hesitate to share you genuine feelings with the audience.

A good wedding speech would always end with an appropriate toast. since you are supposed to be the last speaker of the day/evening, you must wait and see if anybody is yet to be toasted (which is very unlikely). Alternatively you could just propose a toast to all those individuals who supported you all through the wedding – that would include but not limited to the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, both sets of parents and siblings.

finally, I would give some quick tips. Firstly, keep you speech short – the audience already have listened enough. Make sure your speech doesn’t hurt anybody’s feelings even if it’s unintentional. Don’t make the mistake of not writing your speech on paper and practicing it until you are confident and fully prepared to deliver it.
