Wedding Speeches


Writing a speech can be a very difficult task. But with the proper assistance your congratulations can be elegantly shared with the bride and groom. You might be wondering where you should start. Do you do some research first? That wouldn’t hurt.

You will want to make a brief sketch of what you want to say to the bride and groom. For example, you will want to acknowledge the day, ceremony or venue. You will want to comment on the appearance of the bride and groom. You may want to have a poem, verse or a quote to read. If you have a story you want to share with their guests, you should make note of it. And of course, last but not at all least, your wedding wishes for the bride and groom.

Now that you have your outline, next will be writing the sentences to create your paragraph. I know this whole process can be overwhelming but that's why we are breaking it down. This will help you to concentrate on only one thing verses the whole speech and allow you to really embrace what you want to say. So, first sentence about the day.

Was it a beautiful ceremony? Great whether and a perfect venue for a wedding? If so, write a starting sentence to compliment their day and wedding choices. Next comment on the bride and grooms appearance. Was she radiant, lovely or stunning? Make it completely about her but to then throw in that the groom looked good too! You don’t want to leave him out even though everyone knows everyone was looking at her!!

Next you will want to include the poem or a quote you found that you though reminds you of the couple or you can combined it with your wedding wish. Or if you’d prefer not to add in a poem or a quote maybe a story you remember about the bride and grooms first encounter or the day they got engaged. This should be something about the two of them if you can. You will then want to finish your speech off with some special wishes for the bride and groom with of course cheering to the couple at the end. We’ve used these steps to create the below speech:

Jim and Joan,
I must say, your venue choice for your wedding ceremony was perfect! And not to mention the luck of receiving such beautiful whether complimented your choices wonderfully! And I have to mention how beautiful Joan looked as she walked down that isle! Wow, stunning!! Oh and Jim, you looked pretty good yourself! I want to keep this short and sweet so I have a prayer I would like to read to you that is my marriage wishes for the two of you:
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now you will feel no loneliness, for each of you will be companionship to the other.
Now you are two persons but there is only one life between you.  
American Indian Prayer
So lets raise our glasses and toast to a long and happy marriage! To Jim and Joan!

We hope you have found our way of creating a speech through an outline to be a little bit easier than sitting down and feeling overwhelmed. Breaking it down can help to sort out your words. If you still are having difficulties writing your speech, why not use our example as your speech and just change what needs to be changed to make it yours. Good luck!
