The wedding speech is another highlight of your wedding day. Take this opportunity to thank your partner, your family and relatives, bridal party, friends and guests. Speeches need not be boring if you prepare hard enough beforehand. Of course, it helps if you are a charismatic speaker. Do write out your speech on paper so you will not have stage fright or find that you are at a loss of words at the rostrum. Remember to smile when you are giving your speech :)
Here's a guide to help you draft your speech.
Greet your guests and thank them for their presence and gifts.
Thank your Bridal Party. Tell them how wonderful they have been throughout the preparations and during the wedding. Thank them for their friendship as well!
Thank your parents. Need we say more? Think about how they brought you up and how proud they will be of you on that day. Appreciate them and honour them on that day! Surprise them with a gift or sing a song for them if u can.
Thank your partner's parents. Thank them for bringing up your partner and all the help they have given you. It helps that you acknowledge them in front of everyone. Think of how proud they will be to have another son/daughter. Assure them that you will take care of your other half.
Thank your partner. Without your partner, there will be no wedding! Bring up what he/she has done and praise him/her! Make it interesting/touching. Tell the guests why he/she is the one for you.
