If I can be honest, but from a guest’s standpoint (not sure if your Rehearsal Dinner will include guests other than the bridal party), I would get anxious watching every single person be honored with a speech.

Here’s a possible compromise: give 3 general speeches- one for bridesmaids, groomsmen, and the child attendants.  Have them all stand, hand out their gifts, and then move on to Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man, and parents.  That way everyone is recognized, but you’re not holding a drawn-out, individualized awards ceremony, lol!

Each speech could be short- maybe a minute (I know that sounds really short, but in public speaking time it’s pretty long!) per group?  You might call each person by name during the speech, you might not.

Lastly, I think the most significant touch would be to write them each a personal note attached to the gift- one that gets into the details of what that person means to you.  That way, all your bases are covered!

Good luck!
