Being Maid of Honor is a huge responsibility. Even before the actual wedding you’ve helped the bride prepare for her big day, been with her to choose her and bridesmaid dresses, you’ve been a shoulder to cry on when the stress of organizing the wedding became too much for her and you probably organized the bachelorette night. Your final role will be to give a Maid of Honor speech and this may just be your most daunting role yet!
The thought of giving a speech to a room full of people doesn’t have to be frightening; you just need to remember one thing. If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail!
What this basically means is if you have your speech thoroughly prepared, it should go extremely well. Leaving it until the last minute or scratching a couple of notes on the back of a piece of scrap paper is probably not the best way to approach your Maid of Honor speech as you’ll probably clam up and make a real mess of it.

Either that or the groom/bride have sent you here to make sure you don’t screw up their special day by giving the “worst” best man’s toast ever.
I know the good, the bad and the ugly about this topic because I’ve been there! My insight into giving a good best man’s speech came from both experience and lots of research. That’s why I’m sharing with you my “template” to successful best man wedding toasts. What I won’t do here is expound on how to become a “professional” writer. My research took me to lots of sites that suggested I either hire a professional writer for my best man’s toast, or take a course on speech-writing so I could prepare myself for my little wedding speech.

If you are considering making the wedding speeches order, you must be the father of the bride, the best man or the groom himself. Are you finding the idea of making a speech nerve-wracking because you just do not know what to say?
Maybe you know what you want to say, but just cannot seem to put it into words. A wedding is such a huge occasion, and there is a great amount of pressure on the members who are required to speak in front of the guests.

Are you the groom’s father and you must deliver a speech at your son’s wedding? Well, I have good news for you: there’s no reason to panic! On this site you will find a lot of resources on how to create and deliver the best father of the groom speech (click here for some examples). But in this article, I will reveal you the main aspects you need to know about this special moment.
The wedding speech you will deliver will be a part of the marriage reception – a party held after the completion of the wedding ceremony. This kind of reception – which is organized for entertaining the guests – begins with the bride and the groom (and sometimes their parents and also the honor attendants) standing in order of precedence and greeting every guest coming at the wedding (click here for 25 father of the groom speech examples). Particularly in the Western cultures, after this moment or after the food is served, there should be the wedding toast, in which the groom and some other important participants at the ceremony are expected to deliver their speeches. This is where the audience should listen your oration – the father of the groom wedding speech. The order of these discourses varies by culture, religion and country – so you should check what the toasting protocol is in your region. In some traditions, the bride’s father is the first one to give the speech, while in others the groom is supposed to begin the toast. The next one to deliver a discourse is usually the groom’s father (that is you). Continue reading →
Hi! My name is Larry and I’m here to help you with your wedding toasts. You probably ended up here looking for some groom speech examples. I know, writing a speech it’s not an easy job. I had to do it myself 2 years ago when I got married to Cindy.
At least now there are many resources on the web where you can find all the info you need for your speech, but when I needed them, there were only a few websites with some tips and examples and I had to do quite a research to see how it should be structured, what to include in it, who you should thank to first, when to use a joke, etc.
Professional Groom Wedding Speech Examples
Well, luckily I found a website that offered 25 professional examples of speeches for like $20 which was almost free, compared to the wedding expenses. So I thought I should give it a try, I mean, I’d rather pay the price of 2 beers and have a great speech, than struggling myself to come up with a nice and funny toast and risking to end up with the lamest toast of all. I mean, I’m the groom, my toast will be probably the most important one. And since I’m not good with words, it was a real pain in the butt to try to write it myself. Continue reading →
