We plan to say some words at our rehearsal dinner but not at our wedding. We will leave the talking up to the other people! That would make me way too nervous! Im already nervous enough thinking about our rehearsal dinner speech!!!

I don’t think we are going to make a speech nor anyone in our wedding party. We are all too shy to. Do you think that would be akward?

We plan to speak, but it will be short and simple. I just want to really thank everyone for coming and traveling so far. It will mean more to me than they’ll ever truly know. I want them to know it’s appreciated.

We thought about it, then decided it against it.  My hubs hates public speaking, I don’t love it either.  And I knew I’d be emotional so who needs to see me cry an extra time?  No one.  We opted to do a lil speech at the rehearsal dinner… but after my hubby spoke, I chickened out and said, “what he said :oD”.  Its really a nice touch though, people always enjoy it.

Isn’t it strange when things dawn on you?!

Yes, we both plan to speak briefly. I’m not sure what The Guy’s planning to say, but i plan to thank everyone for coming, thank my family, thank his family and then say a few words about The Guy…we’ll see how far I can get into it before breaking out the ugly cry!

I plan to – not sure if Fiance will or not – have no idea what I’m going to say… might just wing it!

My Darling Husband wrote the most wonderful speech ever. We both agreed that we needed to say something to thank our parents and everyone that made the journey to our wedding…but he would never let me read it! It turned out to be the sweetest speech I have ever heard. He thanked our family and friends and then had a special part just about me and us.

I think guests appreciate hearing from the bride and groom. (though I doubt they will feel slighted or like they missed something if the b&g choose not to say anything)

Are you going to acknowledge Mrs Crazy? Laughing “Our wedding has been sweet for us and bitter for one amongst us…”

Maybe at the rehearsal dinner, but not the reception.

We might say something at the end of the reception, maybe shortly before we leave? Probably just thank everyone for coming and supporting us or something along those lines.

Now I’m happy I took that public speaking class a few semesters ago. 🙂
