Making84:  Can one of those girls be your Emcee and give a speech that way?  Then have one of your BMs give the bridesmaid speech?  I think it would be weird and a bit of a slap in the face to the non-bm to say hey, I realize I didn’t pick you as a Bridesmaid or Best Man but you know me better than these girls, can you give the Bridesmaid or Best Man speech? 

If it was me, I’d be pissed/offended/hurt to be honest.

Making84:  I say 8 years is not “new” and they will still know you just as well. Have you asked if anyone would be interested in doing instead of assigning to someone?

Making84:  I think your overthinking it a little. What about about asking all 8 to do like a quick “my favorite memory with Making84 is” and a quick congrats. if they would not like to particapate they are free not too. And you would get to include the 2 other girls. 

We went to a friends wedding and she did this with her 12! girls because she couldnt pick a Maid/Matron of Honor and 8 were her sisters. it actually turned out so adorable.

Why not ask which Bridesmaid or Best Man is most comfortable doing the speech? A lot of people aren’t too keen on public speaking anyway.

I wouldnt ask them to do a speech, i would leave that to a Bridesmaid or Best Man. But what  i am doing with my BM’s is giving them 3ish minutes for speech. So they can do what they please with it, let whoever take the spot like.
