Home / The Dos and Don’ts of a Maid of Honor Speech

Don’t stress. While your speech is important, if you prepare well in advance, you will be able to practice as many times as you need to. Don’t make the speech too long. There will be other wedding toasts that still need to be heard. Bring notes to help keep you on track to prevent babbling. Don’t tell stories that are too personal. You may want to run a story by someone else to get their opinion on if this particular story will be too embarrassing. You are looking at the story from a personal view. The bride may not want others knowing this particular piece of information. Do be positive. Keep any negative or depressing topics out. Do choose heartfelt words to describe the bride, such as: loving, caring, generous, beautiful, funny, etc. Do practice your speech in front of other people to get their opinion. Do practice over and over again. The more you practice your final draft, the more at ease you will be when you have to deliver it.

You have been selected out of all the guests to honor the bride. Take this seriously and let the bride know how special she is to you by creating a maid of honor speech that will make her day even more memorable. Also, present good looking plastic table covers.
