It sounds really good!  Equal parts funny and serious!

It’s good, but I think it’s quite a bit too long. My advice? Cut the psychic bit and leave out the subtle digs to Bill (i.e. his smelly feet, snoring). I know it’s meant to be funny, but it may embarrass him. Think about how everyone would react if the best man were making jokes like that about the bride.

 

I love the part about what Bill said the day after meeting Beth and the ending of your toast.

So cute! You really put a lot of thought into this and it sounds great!

Also, I’m going to have to disagree with @babylou: — I think the subtle digs at him are harmless and funny. I’m sure you know the couple well enough to understand their sense of humor.

Awesome job — I bet it’s a huge hit! ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree that it might be a little too long, but I don’t know that I would change it. I obviously don’t know them and have a sense of each of them. and the part at the end where you say what he said about “falling for That girl”  i almost teared up. (granted i’ve been very emotional these last few weeks) but I think it will really strike the other guests that know and love them as much as you do.

On length… it didn’t take very much time for me to read it to myself.. and generally when speaking infront of people you talk even faster.

My sisters was MUCH longer and it didn’t feel that long at all (i know that it was longer b/c she had it written out on multiple pages lol).. I think the little quips you have reallly break it up.. and since you actually knew the groom BEFORE him and your friend even knew each other I think the jokes are safe. =)

I think even if no one else listens to it all, gets it, or even likes it for that matter.. the Your friends are going to LOVE it! It’s personal toward both of them.. funny.. and incredibly heartfelt =)

At first look I thought it was a little long, but after reading it- I think its worth the length. Its really sweet and heartfelt. There is nothing cheesy or cliche in there. I love it.

I really liked it! I too thought it was the perfect blend of serious and funny. I didn’t think it was too long, but I’m a really fast reader, so ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry this feedback is a little late, but I found this through a search of Maid of Honor speeches bc I have to give one soon, too!

This is really picky, but if you’re 22 years old and you have been friends since you were 4, then you’ve been friends for 18 years, not 26 ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought the rest was perfect – good mix of serious and fun.  Good luck!

If my matron of honor gave that speech, I would love it. It’s funny and sentimental. I think the length is perfect and I think the digs are harmless. If the guy asked you to smell his shoes, he probably wouldn’t be offended by anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

@NoelleW: – I think they’re actually 30 but telling people they’re 22.

ok, pls disregard that last post by me – it was a joke that I obviously didn’t get – ah, embarrassing ๐Ÿ™‚  Maybe that’s a sign I shouldn’t be trying any humor in my own speech, haha
