I think it’s good.  Were you asked to keep it very brief, or are you a shy person?  If it’s acceptable to be a bit longer, I might put in a funny/happy story about the bride/you and the bride.

@SapphireSun: I agree with you. A little more humor to splash it up a bit…

I was Maid/Matron of Honor for my sister and my speech was fairly short and simple as well.  I think it went better then the Best man’s speech who just tried to be funny and rambled.  I did have a few funny lines, so maybe that’s all you’re missing.  For example my sister was married on Valentines Day, so I started with “I’m sure all the guys out there are happy they didn’t have to plan anything for tonight”  and it got the crowd to laugh, so it made me more at ease too!  Hope that helps!

Leave it alone. Speaking from personal experience, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Simple is best to avoid any unwarranted negative feelings or opinions.

I love that it is short, sweet, and heartfelt. Your sincerity shines through and I love your little matchmaking story. And hey, it’s all in the delivery, anyway. Practice a few times in front of a mirror or another bridesmaid and you’re good to go!

I think it’s great – I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m sure you’re friend will be very touched.

It is very sweet but a personal anecdote about their relationship or you and the bride’s relationship would add a nice personal touch I think. If you want to keep it short, it reads well and I am sure the bride will be touched!
