Speeches are the part in the wedding that everybody looks forward to, they get to hear some really nice, meaningful things said about the newlyweds and always have the audience smiling ear to ear sometimes with a tear of happiness or in other cases crying with laughter!

Order of the Wedding Speeches

Traditionally there are three speeches at a wedding, the first consists of a few words said about the happy couple by the father of the bride wishing them happiness and welcoming the groom into his family. The second speech was always done by the groom thanking every one for coming and saying a few words about his new wife, usually making her blush!

However recently brides have also opted to give a speech and sometimes even the chief bridesmaid gives one too. It’s your wedding day and totally up to the happy couple to be who they ask to give a speech.

The third and final speech, usually a light hearten speech reminiscing on the groom and best mans relationship before the beautiful bride came along finishing off with a toast to the happy couple.
