I’m the same and feel if we do a reception speech I’ll be very emotional.  I’m thinking we’re going to do our speeches during the rehearsal dinner, and our ‘thank you’s’ on the thank you cards to our guests.

I am, but only because my ceremony is separate and private. I think we’ll do one together and if we can, hook up a projector and show a few pics of the ceremony.

I cannot speak in public (not even my own wedding) so Darling Husband did a small thank you on behalf of both of us. It was basically “thank you for coming and to those of you who came from other areas, and to our parents, etc…”

He wasn’t thrilled about doing it but finally agreed. To ease the tention he threw some humour into it. When we got up to the mic, he said “Hi my names Matt, I’m the groom”. It got everyone laughing 🙂

no but my husband said a thank you at the rehearsal. I figured we didn’t need to say anything at the reception since we were already thanking people when we greeting them or saying bye to them.. like thank you for coming or so glad you made it etc. Also thats what thank you notes are for!

We made a speech at our wedding. Outline was as follows:

1) Thank everyone for coming

2) Thank our bridal party

3) DH thanks his parents

4) I thanked my parents

5) Darling Husband thanked me and said a few words about me

6) I thanked him and said a few words him

Then we went straight into our first dance.

Hubs said a few words for both of us to everyone and then surprised me with a “most beautiful bride” toast. it was lovely. i just stood there next to him. i think you(as a couple) should definitely thank everyone for showing up and hope they’re having a good time. short and sweet, no big deal.
