i’ve been to a few weddings where the speeches took FOREVER. and the same 10 people made the same speeches for the rd and the wedding so we had to hear the same things over and over.

for our wedding, it’s just bm speech and if my sister/moh decides she wants to do a speech she’s allowed to too (she’s not happy about public speaking so hers is optional, but we already know my fi’s brother wants to).

We’re not doing speeches. However FH and I might make a joint speech (he’s too chicken to do a groom’s speech on his own) just thanking everyone for coming.

I will say though. The last wedding that I went to where there were speeches they were very short and sweet but also hugely influenced by drink. It was an intimate wedding and I was only a few feet away from the Best Man and couldn’t understand a word he was saying. Just something to think about 🙂 The bride made a speech thanking everyone for being there, the groom did his bit, the bride’s mother made a speech welcoming the groom into their family and the best man did a speech. I guess they just asked who’d like to make a speech and who didn’t. It worked quite well (apart from them being a bit drunk!).

I think we’re doing just Maid/Matron of Honor & Best Man. We might take time to thank everyone briefly but that is it. After that, a prayer and dinner!
