I’m pretty sure it;s only the Best Man who says a speech

It can be whoever you want. We had seven people in our wedding party, and 5 of them spoke at the reception. We asked everyone before the wedding so no one would be lefted out.

Usually it’s just the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man.  But you can have whoever you want to do it.  No one is required to.  Make sure you ask everyone beforehand!

I don’t think there is one right answer. Traditionally the best man and the maid of honor are the ones that speak. But I know people who have had the whole bridal party speak. Are your bridesmaids the kind of people who will want to speak? Do you want them to speak? Are you okay if it takes half an hour to get through all the speaches? Whatever you decide will be fine. You could even talk to them to get their opinion!

@kes18:  this. 

The others traditionally give speeches the night before at the rehearsal dinner, if you’re having one.
