Quick help with Maid of Honor Speech!!!!?I need help preparing a maid of honor speech! The samples I’m finding online aren’t that great! The kicker is, I need it by tonight. I know, I know…shame on me for waiting this long, but I’ve been swamped with other life events. Nevertheless, I haven’t known the bride for very long (only two years), but she’s developed into a “sister” role. I would like to have some funny parts and some sweet parts, too! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

ncountyFirst off: RELAX. You’re meant to honor the bride with your speech. So, what are some of her endearing qualities, a funny story or two about how she met or fell for the groom, why you think she will make a good partner or what her husband should watch out for (like shared closet space or bathroom time in the morning)?
It’s not the length of time you’ve known her that measures how well you know her or what she means to you. She did ask you to be her maid of honor; she obviously holds you close to her heart!
I believe these speeches end with a toast to the newlyweds.
Maid of Honor speech?My older sister is getting married Saturday and I am the maid of honor. I have been playing around with my speech but can’t get it right! I am 14 and my sister is 23. We are super close though. Help much appreciated!

ncountyThat’s a wonderful sister, to make you the maid of honor! I am a wedding photographer and see a lot of weddings. First, keep it short and sweet, and if I were you, I would do three things:1. Thank her for asking you to be part of your wedding and say how proud/happy/excited you are for her.2. Say a few things you remember about growing up with her, like funny or embarrassing stories.

3. Let the professional writers make you look good. Look up a funny or sweet poem or quote to share. You can say something like, “Michael Leunig said it best when he wrote: ‘Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that.’”

This is also a great article to read:

And, lastly, practice in front of the mirror, and when it’s your time to stand up and give your toast, stand up straight and speak clearly. If you mumble and look at your card, all your hard work will be a waste. Make sure everyone can hear you and have fun!
