Bride Wedding Speech Tips

Wedding speeches are great, but one thing that seems to be a little on the annoying side is that the men get to have all the glory.

The groom, the father of the bride, the best man, they all get to have their moment in the spotlight.

For some brides, this is fine, after all, they have had all eyes on them during their walk down the aisle.

However, for some ladies, they want a piece of the action.

This means that the idea of a bride’s speech has become all the more common.

So, for those brides that are thinking about making a speech, what are the things to keep in mind?

How long should the speech be?

A wedding speech, no matter who is making it, should never, ever run more than 10 minutes.

Otherwise you could end up making your guests feel ready for a nap.

A bride’s speech, particularly as it is alongside other speeches, should be relatively short, a few minutes should be enough to make an impact but ensure that your guests don’t feel all speeched out.

What kind of things should you cover in your speech?

When you are a bride who is going to make a speech, you might be concerned about what your speech should contain.

The last thing that you are going to want is to duplicate anything that has already been said, or even worse, steal the thunder from someone else.

The best way to make sure that this doesn’t happen, is to speak to the other people making speeches and ask them what kind of things they will be saying, just to make sure that you don’t have any repeats.

Why not go for a poem or a reading?

Who said that you have to stick to your standard approach to a speech?

If you are a bride who is hoping to stand up and speak, then why not take this one step further and change things up a little?

You could take the time to share a reading, or a poem, which will not only help you to make a speech, but will also be interesting to your guests too.

The idea of a bride’s speech might sound a little out there, but just like many traditions that have developed in weddings over time, perhaps the bride standing up a making a speech, along with the others, is going to catch on and become much more popular.
