Tips for the Best Maid of Honor Speech Tips for the Best Maid of Honor Speech

Tips for the Best Maid of Honor Speech

Ah, the famous speech. You?re expected to absolutely kill it. You?re the maid of honor! The bride hand-picked you, singled you out as the most influential friend in her life. You are the one she wants right next to her on the big day. You?re also the one she expects to give that amazing speech about her. No pressure!
But what if you?re not the best writer or you just have no idea what to say" Maybe you?ve got some ideas, but they need some major fine-tuning. Look no further. Read on for some great tips on how to write the kind of speech you?ve been dreaming of.
Be Original
This is the cardinal rule of a good wedding speech. You have to make it personal and original. It?s just like a ceremony; beautiful couple and space can be ruined with a really bland ceremony. If you don?t weave a genuine story with your words, it will flop. People want to connect to a speech, so if they can’t, they’ll just tune you out or whisper with others nearby. Your generic wish of happiness is fine, but if you want to write the best, you have to get personal.
Use the Feels

Here?s a writing tip you don?t often hear when it comes to wedding speeches: you have to be in the right mood to write the perfect one. This tip is usually reserved for ?serious? writers. You might be thinking of Hemingway, who got drunk before writing, or any other author who needs special surroundings to get into that writing frame of mind. You need this too?but not necessarily the alcohol. You should, however, get drunk on the love and fond memories you have with the bride. Maybe start the process by looking over some photos of the two of you. This will not only get you in that choked up feeling place, it may even spark some great stories that you can include in your speech. Trust me, the pen will flow much easier when you?re feeling it.
Lacking Inspo" Ask!
Are you completely stuck with what to include" This happens and it doesn?t make you a bad maid of honor?just a stuck one. Maybe you haven?t known the bride for very long or you?re just totally blanking. Either way, the easiest solution is to simply ask around. Recruit those close to the bride for help on gathering intel and stories. Be like a MoH journalist, sans the recorder. Just casually start asking for stories and memories from people like the bride?s parents. You can even go to the groom and include some of what he says. Let the feelings surrounding the bride speak for themselves when you?re feeling mute.

It?s all about structure. We have this idea beat into our heads in writing classes. You may think this doesn?t apply to non-scholarly writing, but you?re wrong. It?s so much easier to write a good speech when you have an idea of where everything is headed. You don?t have to follow a structure, it?s true; some people claim to do better freeform, but at least consider an outline. Especially if you?re stuck, finding an outline you like can help. There are a ton of templates online that are sure to giv...
