The maid of honor role is vital to the bride. You’re a support system, second hand, party planner and soon a public speaker. We’re talking about your fabulous maid of honor speech! For people who are not fans of getting in front of an audience…the thought of a maid of honor speech is nerve racking BUT it doesn’t have to be this way. With our tips, tricks, dos (and don’ts) you can rest assure you will deliver a killer maid of honor speech!
Writing does not come as second nature for a majority of people. With this in mind, give yourself plenty of time brainstorm exactly what you want to say and how you want to say it!. You can’t rush perfection and you surely don’t want to rush writing your MOH speech.
Okay this relates to giving yourself plenty of time to prepare and choose what you want to say...but you should also set aside a nice chunk of time to practice what you’re saying. Of course you are not going to remember word for word but having an idea of your key points is vital. This ensures you don’t skip anything important!
This point needs reiteration. DO NOT. I repeat...DO NOT memorize the entire MOH speech. This kills any spontaneity or fitting to the mood of the evening. You don’t want to know each and every sentence you plan to say. This makes the speech sound unnatural and not as genuine. Instead have a general idea of all the different “bullet points” you want to hit on.
“Meat” of the speech...
Talk about both the bride AND the groom
Finish with a BANG
Good luck with your maid of honor speech! It can seem so overwhelming and difficult to begin. With these simple tips and tricks you are sure to have a fantastic speech EVERYONE will love!
And congrats again on getting selected as the Maid of Honor!
