Speech Guidelines

This is our final installment on our short series on wedding speeches, we also advise you can read our previous advice on speeches for the best man, groom and father of the bride via our etiquette category.

General Info

Try to finish your speech 4 weeks before the wedding giving you time to practiceTime yourself and check with Dream Occasions this fits in with the scheduleWrite bullet points on index cards and post a copy to Dream Occasions (sealed in an envelope) in case you forget your speechDon’t be tempted to overindulge in alcohol; this gives false courage with speeches invariably ending in disaster. Ad-libbing is never a good idea.If you are really nervous then ask to have the speeches before the wedding breakfastTraditionally the speeches run in the following order: Father of the Bride, Groom and Best Man. If the bridesmaid or bride wishes to speak this should happen after the groom’s speech.
