It isn’t just the male side of the wedding party who give speeches nowadays, and the maid of honour may wish to say a few words.
If you’re going to be giving a maid of honour speech then you can keep it light hearted – much like the best man’s speech. But also add in some sentiment and let the bride know how happy you are that she asked you to play such a big role in her special day.
If you are one of a few bridesmaids then now is the time to thank them for all their help on this special day and perhaps point out how lovely they look. If you are close with the bride’s family then you may also want to say a few words to them.
We have lots of maid of honour speeches here on hitched to help get you started. Once you’ve given your speech we would love to add it to our site to help others.
