The wedding speech is a big honour and a big part of wedding tradition but it can also be something peppered with fear and confusion (who should speak, how long for, in what order and when?). There’s no shying away from the fact that a good speech is a highlight of the wedding meal, it can bring tears (of the happy and sentimentally variety) and fill the room with belly laughs of fun. But… done badly the speech can be remembered for all the wrong reasons. I don’t know about you but I certainly have ‘that’ speech memory that makes me feel slightly uneasy.
Today I’m sharing my advice on what makes a really good speech – the dos and don’ts – as well as the etiquette low down.
