One of the most eagerly-anticipated speeches is the one by the maid of honour. Feeling butterflies in your stomach? Here are some tips on how to nail your speech.


Share a sentimental, memorable or cherished moment. Your story will essentially honour the bride and delightful stories of your history together will uplift the crowd.

Telling a funny story about the bride should be selected with caution and good judgment. There is a difference between lighthearted laughter and just plain embarrassing.

The best speeches are usually ones said from the heart. Channel your sentimental energy and produce words that really speak volumes of your friendship.
