As the bride you are probably anxious enough about
getting married that you donít have time to think about your speech! However,
you really should give yourself a few weeks or even months to prepare the speech
and learn it. The reason why is that you will be really busy the week of your
wedding, and especially on your wedding day. Because of this you donít want to
add any additional stress by trying to memorize a speech while you are getting
your nails or hair done. Give yourself your wedding day as a time when you donít
do anything more than get ready. There will be enough going on that you wonít
have time to think about anything other than exchanging vows, so just relax!
Writing the Speech
The first thing you want to do is focus on coming up with some short but sweet
anecdotes to include in your speech. Think about your first date or the time you
knew you were really in love. Feel free to share stories your groom doesnít know
about how you felt when he first kissed you or the way your heart raced when he
proposed. It is your wedding day so it is completely acceptable to get all
During your speech you also need to focus on your parents. Thank them for being
there for you, for raising you into the woman you are today, and ask them for
their continued support in your new life. As parents, it is hard to give a
daughter away so make them feel special and included in your special day.
Finally, thank your in laws, your bridesmaids, the groomsmen, and the guests.
This should be short and sweet, but sincere! Read more about
How to Write and
Deliver a Funny Bridal Speech...
Have tissues with you when you are giving your speech. No matter how many times
you practice it tearlessly it is unlikely this will be the case on your special
day. So, have the tissues ready for when the tears come. Wear smudge proof
mascara, too, so you wonít ruin your makeup for the rest of the night!
not cry, but chances are you will at least have a tear or two during your toast
or someone elseís. If you are prepared then you wonít worry about messing up
your makeup or looking bad for the wedding photos.
