How to write a good bride speech
28th February 2018
In honour of International Women’s day next week, we dedicate this blog to all you brave ladies who want to take the mic on your big day! A speech from you lets your partner know how much you love and care about them, so no wonder more and more brides are opting to say a few words! And if rumours are true Prince Harry’s fiancée Meghan Markle is also joining this revolution by giving her own speech at their wedding. Here are our top tips:
Thank your family and his
Your wedding is the perfect opportunity to let your nearest and dearest know how significant they have been in your lives together. Make sure to mention your groom’s parents and their siblings in making you feel part of the family. It’s a touching scene!
Mention your maids
Generally, your Father will talk all about you, the Groom will mention his best mates, his Best Man will talk all about him and no one talks about your handpicked army! Your bridesmaids are your closest friends and definitely deserve a mention on how they have supported you throughout your engagement and relationship. They helped you in the most intimate ways, the least you could do is thank them in your speech!
Confer with your man
Of course you want some elements of your speech to be a surprise but at the same time you don’t want to be covering the same ground. Perhaps hubby can talk about his family most and you can talk about yours, or vice versa. Share the thanking responsibilities and it’ll make the speeches far more streamlined and succinct.
Lastly, speak from the heart
Your new hubby will tell you how you changed his life, how beautiful you are, celebrate how you met and all that loveliness. This is your opportunity to show how he has made a difference in your life and most importantly, why you said yes! What was it about this particular person that made you want to spend the rest of your life with them? Write it down, tell the world.
