How to Write an Amazing Wedding Speech

Wedding speeches are a time-honoured tradition, and they can be a lot of fun to write. But if you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry – Wedding VIC is here to help.

Here are a few tips on how to write a wedding speech that will make your loved ones laugh, cry, and appreciate you for being such a great friend or family member:

  1. Start early

    Don’t wait until the last minute to start writing your wedding speech. This will only lead to stress and anxiety. Give yourself plenty of time to think about what you want to say and to practice your speech.

  2. Keep it short

    No one wants to sit through a long, rambling wedding speech. Aim for five to ten minutes, max.

  3. Be personal

    Share stories and anecdotes that will help the audience get to know the couple better.

  4. Be funny

    Weddings are a time to celebrate, so don’t be afraid to inject some humour into your wedding speech. Just make sure your jokes are appropriate for the occasion.

  5. Be sincere

    The most important thing is to be sincere in your wedding speech. The couple will appreciate your kind words and support.

  6. Practice, practice, practice

    The more you practice your speech, the more confident you’ll feel when you deliver it. So find a quiet place and practice your wedding speech until you can deliver it without looking at your notes.

  7. Have fun!

    Weddings are a happy occasion, so enjoy yourself! Your wedding speech should be a reflection of your joy for the couple.

    Following these tips will help you write a wedding speech that the couple will treasure for years to come. So relax, have fun, and let your words flow.
